Sylvester Stallone's Super Bowl favorite is no mystery. The man who set his iconic breakout movie Rocky in Philadelphia is an Eagles guy all the way.
And his Instagram has been dominated by Stallone's take on how his team will do against the New England Patriots. As far as he's concerned, the Eagles are going to send Tom Brady and co. yelping back to Foxborough with their tails between their legs.
Seriously, if Stallone's comparisons come true, the Eagles will own the Pats, big time. Some totally agree with him, like a writer for CBS Sports who says Super Bowl 52 will put a halt to the Patriots' winning tradition "because the Eagles will win in convincing fashion."
His justification for that claim? "The Eagles have a superior roster," especially on defense. Sylvester Stallone is obviously down with that.
The message to the Patriots from Rocky himself is pretty clear: You will lose.
We'll find out if he's right on Sunday, February 4.
