Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Tom Brady is arguably the most clutch player in the history of professional sports, and his fourth quarter performances in the Patriots’ last two Super Bowl wins were two of the best of his Hall of Fame career. This time around, MLB superstar Mike Trout expects things to be different.

Trout, a lifelong Eagles fan who grew up in New Jersey, has a bold prediction for the Super Bowl. In addition to believing Philadelphia will pull off the upset, Trout thinks Brady is going to have a chance to win the game late and blow it.

Try not to be offended, Patriots fans. The two-time American League MVP isn’t trying to take anything away from what Brady has accomplished.

“It’s going to be tough,” Trout added. “Obviously, anybody that goes against Tom Brady, he’s the best and greatest of all-time. Growing up watching him, last year’s Super Bowl, and I still think the Eagles are going to pull one out.”

Trout isn’t qualified to offer an unbiased opinion on this year’s Super Bowl. If you saw what he wore to the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, you know exactly what we’re talking about.

Fans in New England might not want to hear it, but the Patriots have lost two Super Bowls with Brady under center. The Eagles have a tremendous defense and have been extremely motivated by being underdogs throughout the postseason. Anything can happen in Minneapolis.
