Tom Brady has established himself as one of the best quarterbacks to ever play, but Lane Johnson isn’t cutting him any slack.
Following Philadelphia’s 38-7 win over Minnesota in Sunday’s NFC championship game, the Eagles right tackle was informed the Patriots were already installed as 5.5-point favorites in Super Bowl 52.
The Eagles are used to being the underdogs this postseason but overcame the odds to reach their first Super Bowl since 2005 when they faced the Patriots. Given the opportunity for revenge, Johnson is out for blood after New England beat Philadelphia 24-21 in that title game.
For what they did to us in 2004, to get payback, there would be nothing sweeter than that, Johnson said. I remember watching that game when I was 14 years old. I was hoping the Eagles would win. Just coming up short, you could feel the pain, and you could also feel the passion of what this city wants. And we’re here, so it’s right at our fingertips.
