Down to one and I couldn't feel more confident about my Lock of the Week for Super Bowl 52 as the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles play for the title.

All year long we have seen some crazy moments and why would you expect anything less in the biggest game of the year.

Last year we saw New England look like they were done for at halftime and rallied back for one of the greatest comeback wins in any sport.

This year I expect a lot of the same as far as the rollacoaster affect with both teams trading blows all game long.

The Eagles offense is primed for a big day on the ground and will be looking to set up a lot of run-pass options to keep New England's defense on their heels.

Likewise, Tom Brady and the Patriots are going to have to get creative to get past a Eagles defense that doesn't get enough love for their playmaking ability and pass rushing prowess.

Time has taught us never to count out the Patriots and with Rob Gronkowski likely to play a big role after missing most of the Jaguars game with a concussion, I think his ability to extend drives late in the game is going to be huge.

All that said, I think it is going to come down to a field goal and with the line at New England -4.5 it makes this a easy pick.

My final "Lock of the Week" is to take Philadelphia Eagles +4.5.

Regardless if Philly wins or loses, I don't think New England will win by more than three.
