>The New England Patriots are 5-2 in Super Bowls with Tom
Brady.They were thisclose to being 7-0.Or 0-7.So when folks wonder why the
spread against Philadelphia is between 5 and 6 points Dallas
Goedert Jersey
, they should consider that the total difference in
scoring in those seven games is 12 points: Patriots 169, opponents 157.“If you
look at a Patriots Super Bowl, a lot of people feel that the Patriots are going
to be dominant and they should just wipe the floor with whoever they play,” says
Jay Kornegay of the Westgate Las Vegas sports book.“The reality is all their
Super Bowl wins have been in very close games. Last year’s six-point victory was
their largest margin of victory in all their Super Bowls.“We expect the Eagles
to be competitive and we expect them to get some support from the general
public. This is the only event we make a line that depends on public opinion.
There’s so much money from the public on this game than you would get from the
so-called sharks.”New England has not exactly been a pool of sharks in those
Super Bowls. Consider that the Patriots have not scored a point in the opening
quarter of any of those seven games. Zip. Zilch. Nada.And while Brady certainly
has deserved his four Super Bowl MVP trophies, particularly in the past two
Patriots wins, aside from the most successful quarterback in the modern NFL era,
there hasn’t been much to separate New England from the vanquished
opposition.Consider:Patriots 20, Rams 17: Super Bowl 36, Feb. 3, 2002New
England’s defense was masterful against the “Greatest Show on Turf”, playing an
ultra-physical style that eventually led to some rules changes on how defenders
could interact with receivers. Still, the Patriots blew a 17-3 lead and St.
Louis tied it with 1:30 left.That’s when Brady first showed he was, well, Brady.
Rams coach Mike Martz, who ignored star running back Marshall Faulk far too
often on a day begging for a run game, thought New England would play for OT.
Instead, Brady, then 24, led his team to Adam Vinatieri’s winning field
goal.Patriots 32 Adidas
Filip Forsberg Jersey
, Panthers 29: Super Bowl 38, Feb. 1,
2004Again, the Patriots lost a late lead in a strange game, with all the scoring
coming in the second and fourth quarters. The Panthers’ John Kasay, one of the
league’s most reliable kickers, sent the kickoff following the tying TD out of
bounds with 1:08 remaining. From their 40, the Patriots easily moved in position
for another winning field goal by Vinatieri.Patriots 24, Eagles 21: Super Bowl
39, Feb. 6, 2005New England repeated, helped greatly by Philadelphia’s
ineffectiveness in a hurry-up offense 鈥?and Eagles QB Donovan McNabb vomiting in
the huddle at one point. But Philly did have the ball and a chance to win with
less than a minute left before Rodney Harrison’s interception.Giants 17,
Patriots 14: Super Bowl 42, Feb. 3, 2008This is the biggest head scratcher
because the Patriots were undefeated, unstoppable on offense and chasing
history. Yet Tom Coughlin and his staff outcoached Bill Belichick and his
assistants, and a New England squad that averaged nearly 37 points was befuddled
by New York’s pressure D.Giants 21, Patriots 17: Super Bowl 46, Feb.

2012Coughlin and Eli Manning got the better of Belichick and Brady again, with a
similar formula and some huge plays. But, just as in the 2008 Super Bowl, New
England led late in the fourth quarter.Patriots 28, Seahawks 24: Super Bowl 49,
Feb. 1, 2015This one will always be remembered for Seattle’s incomprehensible
decision to throw from the New England 1-yard line in the final moments rather
than hand off to Marshawn Lynch 鈥?who, incidentally, is nicknamed “Beast
Mode”.The Patriots were within a few feet and a few ticks of the clock of losing
a third straight Super Bowl appearance. But Brady was sensational in bringing
his team back from a 24-14 fourth-quarter deficit. At the time, that was the
biggest second-half rally in Super Bowl history.Until …Patriots 34, Falcons 28,
OT: Super Bowl 51, Feb. 5, 2017Still shaking your head over this one? So is the
rest of the nation outside New England 鈥?and maybe some folks there, as
well.This is when Brady leaped beyond the Joe Montanas and Otto Grahams of pro
football to establish himself as the measuring stick at his position. Keeping
his team hungry and focused while down 28-3 in the third quarter cemented his
unequaled leadership.Remember, though, that the tiring Falcons had an 8-point
lead and were within easy field goal range as the clock ticked down. They came
away with nothing after some curious and ill-advised play calling, instead
playing right into Brady’s hands.The lessons here are clear, for fans (and
bettors) of all kinds:New England has been beatable in its past seven Super Bowl
appearances. And it lost only twice.AP Sports Columnist Tim Dahlberg
contributed. With a career batting average under .100 Jimmy
Garoppolo Jersey
, Jon Lester might seem to be a pitcher who
doesn’t care what he does at the plate.

Not true.

”It’s important to have good at-bats. I feel like I have done that regardless
of the outcome,” he said.

Lester hit a three-run homer that highlighted an eight-run burst in the
second inning and wound up with his NL-leading 11th win as the Chicago Cubs held
off the Minnesota Twins 11-10 on Sunday.

”I’ve had good at-bats and I haven’t been just a one-pitch out guy. So I have
worked some counts and I’ve been able to at least make the pitcher work,” he
said. ”That’s all I’m trying to do.”

”If I get hits, I get hits,” he said. ”The home run is awesome, it’s cool,
especially at home. It’s always fun to play here with the crowd and to be able
to hit the ball into the bleachers. But at the end of the day I know I’m a
pitcher and I’m not a hitter.”

Ian Happ also homered for the Cubs, who have scored at least 10 runs in four
straight games for the first time since 1930. Chicago swept the three-game
series and has won four in a row overall.

Brian Dozier hit a two-run homer and Jake Cave also homered for the

Minnesota concluded a 1-5 Chicago road trip that began with two losses in
three tries to the White Sox, and fell 10 games below .500 for the first time
this season.

Lester hit his second career home run, prompting a curtain call from the
cheering fans.

Lester went 10 seasons, mostly in Boston with sporadic at-bats, before
getting his first major league hit. Now, in his fourth season with the Cubs,
Lester has put more of an emphasis into hitting.

”I really didn’t care about hitting there” in Boston, he said. ”I’m worried
about David (Ortiz) and (Dustin) Pedroia and all of the other guys driving in
runs as opposed to me.”

”Coming over here, it can change the outcome of a game, so it becomes a
little more important and you work on it all year. In spring training you’re
doing it from part of the second week on,” he said.

Lester (11-2) allowed four runs, two of them earned Cheap Customized Buffalo

, and nine hits in five-plus innings.

Mitch Garver hit a two-run homer off Dillon Maples as the Twins scored five
times in the eighth. Maples, called up from Triple-A before the game when
pitcher Brian Duensing went on the disabled list with a sore left shoulder, also
allowed an RBI single to Logan Morrison and a two-run triple to Willians

”Their offense, we just had trouble with it. Lot of big innings, lot of
crooked numbers. I think our guys stayed with it. We got some opportunities
there and got some big hits to get back in the game. When you get as close as we
did late, it makes you think about some of the runs we gave up along the way, so
that’s frustrating,” Twins manager Paul Molitor said.

Javier Baez, who doubled twice, Happ and Willson Contreras each had three
hits for the Cubs.

Cubs closer Brandon Morrow got one out in the eighth and pitched a scoreless
ninth for his 18th save in 19 chances.

”They got out on us pretty early, but I love the fight of the guys in the
dugout. I kind of had glimpses of last year’s team and our fight,” Dozier

In the third consecutive sweltering day at Wrigley Field with a gametime
temperature at 93 degrees and a heat index at 101, the Cubs jumped all over
Lance Lynn (5-7) in the second inning.

Baez doubled home two runs and Anthony Rizzo had an RBI double. Kyle
Schwarber met reliever Matt Magill with the Cubs’ third straight double.

Cubs shortstop Addison Russell added an RBI single in the fourth inning and
made a highlight grab in the sixth inning before leaving the game with an
apparent injury resulting in the catch.

Russell bumped into Baez while making the running catch on Eduardo Escobar’s
ball down the left-field line in foul territory. He walked off the field and
into the dugout after talking to a team trainer and manager Joe Maddon. Maddon
said Russell injured his left middle finger and he doesn’t believe it to be


Twins: LF Eddie Rosario, one of three Twins to leave Saturday’s game due to
heat was in the lineup on Sunday. Teammates Bobby Wilson and Max Kepler were
available, as was infielder Ehire Adrianza, who received intravenous fluids
after finishing the game.

”We just encouraged everyone last night to rest and hydrate the best they
could again this morning to get themselves in positions to get through the
game,” Molitor said. ”You just try to be aware of it. There’s not much you can
do: You’ve got to play people and you’ve got to get through the game.” … SS
Jorge Polanco’s 80-game performance-enhancing drug suspension ends Monday and
Molitor said he expects him to rejoin the club in Milwaukee after a stint with
Triple-A Rochester.

Cubs: OF Albert Almora didn’t start, but he came in the game in the eighth as
a defensive replacement after leaving Saturday’s game due to dehydration. Almora
suffered cramps in his legs and was removed in the fifth inning. Almora had a
nice sliding catch in center to rob Kepler in the ninth.


Twins: Visit Milwaukee on Monday as they continue their interleague schedule.
Kyle Gibson (2-6) is the scheduled starter. He had another rough outing against
the White Sox in his last start on June 27. He allowed five runs on a
season-high 11 hits.

Cubs: RHP Kyle Hendricks (5-8) will try to bounce back from his shortest
outing of season on Tuesday against the Tigers. Hendricks allowed six
