    The Philadelphia Eagles have settled for Jake Elliott’s 25-yard field goal and a 3-0 lead over the New England Patriots on the opening drive of the Super Bowl.

    The Eagles had a first down at the 5 after Corey Clement’s 16-yard gain on a catch and run. But a penalty and two incomplete passes forced Philadelphia to settle for the field goal.

    The Patriots will take over looking for their first points in the first quarter in eight Super Bowl appearances with quarterback Tom Brady.

    Quarterback Nick Foles had completions of 17 yards to Alshon Jeffery and 15 yards to Torrey Smith the play after Smith had a drop on second down.

    The New England Patriots have won the opening coin toss for the Super Bowl and have deferred to the second half.

    The Philadelphia Eagles will start the game with the ball and hope to be the first team to score on the opening possession of the Super Bowl since Devin Hester returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown for Chicago against Indianapolis in the 2007 game.

    Carson Wentz is throwing passes in warmups for the Philadelphia Eagles.

    The injured quarterback was walking gingerly and not stepping into the throws as he worked alongside starter Nick Foles.

    Wentz tore a ligament in his left knee against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 14. Foles led playoff wins against Atlanta and Minnesota.

    Foles is trying to join Bob Griese [url=http://www.milwaukeebrewersteamshop.com/authentic-keon-broxton-jersey]Keon Broxton Milwaukee Brewers Jersey[/url] , Doug Williams and Jeff Hostetler as backups to win Super Bowls after starting no more than five games during the regular season.

    The Eagles are playing the New England Patriots, who are trying to win their sixth Super Bowl with quarterback Tom Brady.

    Winning the NFL MVP award might not be a great omen for Tom Brady.

    The past eight winners of the AP MVP award to reach the Super Bowl have lost the game, including Brady in the 2007 season against the New York Giants.

    The other MVPs to lose the big game since Kurt Warner did the regular season-Super Bowl MVP double in the 1999 season for the Rams are: Warner (2001), Rich Gannon (2002), Shaun Alexander (2005) [url=http://www.washingtoncapitalsteamshop.com/authentic-alexander-alexeyev-jersey]Alexander Alexeyev Capitals Jersey[/url] , Peyton Manning (2009 and 2013), Cam Newton (2015) and Matt Ryan (2016).

    Brady would rather join Warner, Steve Young (1994), Emmitt Smith (1993), Joe Montana (1989) [url=http://www.authenticsbaltimoreravens.com/cheap-lamar-jackson-jersey]Lamar Jackson Color Rush Jersey[/url] , Terry Bradshaw (1978) and Bart Starr (1966) as the players to win the regular season and Super Bowl MVPs in the same season.

    The coldest Super Bowl Sunday won’t be felt inside cozy U.S. Bank Stadium.

    The overnight temperature in Minneapolis reached minus-6 degrees and was up to 2 degrees around four hours before kickoff between the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles.

    The coldest previous range was the Detroit Super Bowl in 1982, with a low of 5 degrees and a high of 16 when it was played at the Silverdome. There was a chance for the Minneapolis high to reach 5 on Sunday.

    When the Super Bowl was in Minnesota at the Metrodome in 1992, the outside temperature at kickoff was 26 degrees. That’s the average high here for Feb. 4.

    The coldest outdoor game in Super Bowl history was in New Orleans at Tulane Stadium in 1972, when the kickoff temperature was 39 degrees.



    Golden State All-Star guard Klay Thompson expects to play in Game 2 of the NBA Finals after spraining his left ankle in a scary fall during a collision when Cleveland’s J.R. Smith slid into him in the first quarter of the series opener Thursday night.

    ”It is a Finals game, and I’m going to do everything I possibly can to play [url=http://www.authenticsoaklandraiders.com/cheap-kolton-miller-jersey]Kolton Miller Color Rush Jersey[/url] ,” he said. ”It’s something you definitely don’t want to have in the NBA championship.”

    The Warriors listed Thompson as questionable for Sunday’s second game with a bruise in his left leg, though Thompson offered more specifics Saturday after practice. He didn’t do much work on the floor and limped to his media availability at Oracle Arena.

    Thompson said he is in more pain: ”It’s not good. From watching that replay, it pissed me off.” Yet Thompson did receive some kind words from Smith.

    ”Yeah, he was remorseful, so I don’t think he meant to do it [url=http://www.ravensauthorizedshops.com/authentic-orlando-brown-jr.-jersey]http://www.ravensauthorizedshops.com/authentic-orlando-brown-jr.-jersey[/url] ,” Thompson said.

    Thompson grabbed at his lower left leg and grimaced in pain, a frightening moment for the defending champions.

    He said the pain level and swelling increased overnight into Saturday, when he was working to get it loose and eliminate some of the stiffness.

    Thompson briefly went to the locker room during the game then returned and finished with 24 points and five 3-pointers on 8-for-16 shooting in the Warriors’ 124-114 overtime victory.

    ”I was just trying to go for the ball. It looked like an opportunity for me to get a steal. Unfortunately, I didn’t. I fouled him,” Smith said Saturday. ”They called the foul. I don’t know what more he was looking for.”

    Thompson grew up playing multiple sports with his brothers and has said he has a high tolerance for pain.

    ”My ankle’s just sore [url=http://www.losangelesdodgersteamshop.com/authentic-alex-wood-jersey]Alex Wood Los Angeles Dodgers Jersey[/url] ,” he said. ”It’s stiff at the moment, but I’m going to do what I can in these next 24 hours or so to loosen it up as much as possible, get some stability back. I’m optimistic for tomorrow. So that’s the hard part of the game we all have to endure. Got to let it go. It happens. I’ve just got to move on.”
