Two BSU Broncos Will Go Head-To-Head In The Superbowl
Th biggest game of the year when it comes to football is the Superbowl. The Patriots and the Eagles have both locked in their spots for Superbowl LII on February 4 in Minnesota and it looks like all of us here in Boise have a lil' sumpin' sumpin' to be proud of. We have Broncos on both sides of the ball.
We shouldn't be surprised. I'm not surprised. Are you surprised? Hey, you know what's great about this scenario? One Bronco is guaranteed to have a Superbowl ring.
New England's Shea McClellin got a ring last year. Been there, done that right? Wrong. McClellin says this game means more to him than anything and there's going to be no holding back on this one. Unfortunately McClellin is talking about his team and not himself this year. He's on the injured reserve list and the NFL is prohibiting from playing. He did play a significant role in last year's win but will be sidelined this time rooting on his teammates.
Philadelphia running back Jay Ajayi is going for his first Superbowl ring ever and has been a big part of the Eagle's success this playoff season which means he will most likely get a lot of snaps in this game. Ajayi had 98 rushing yards against the Atlanta Hawks and 73 in the NFC title game against the Minnesota Vikings. A quick note on Ajayi... the Eagles trade for him mid-season and have gone 8-2 since acquiring Ajayi. His former team, the Miami Dolphins have gone just 2-7 since losing him.
