CLEVELAND, Ohio — The New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles will play in Super Bowl LII at 6:30 p.m. Sunday on NBC at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
To no one’s surprise, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will play Sunday after he was cleared Thursday from the concussion protocol. Gronkowski had been under concussion protocol since he was knocked out of the AFC Championship game.
The Patriots have proven many times that they can win without Gronkowski but his return to the lineup is just another key weapon for quarterback Tom Brady. The combination of Brady-Gronkowski has produced 10 postseason touchdowns, which is two behind Jerry Rice-Joe Montana, the all-time leaders.
