Patriots and Eagles win spots in Super Bowl

Eagles blow out Vikings to earn franchise’s third trip to Super Bowl

The New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday advanced to the Super Bowl, which will be played Feb. 4. The Patriots came from behind to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars, 24-20, and qualify for their 10th appearance in professional football’s championship game. Star Patriots quarterback Tom Brady entered the AFC championship game after injuring his throwing hand last week, raising questions about his status, but he went on to complete 26 of 38 passes, with two touchdowns. The Eagles trounced the Minnesota Vikings, 38-7, in the NFC championship game. Backup Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, who has started since Carson Wentz blew out a knee last month, threw for 352 yards and three touchdowns.
