Fletcher Cox is playing in the first Super Bowl he’s seeing.

Or so he says.

The three-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle is a big reason why the Philadelphia Eagles are facing the New England Patriots next Sunday in Minneapolis for a chance to bring home the franchise’s first Vince Lombardi Trophy.

But the 27-year-old Cox isn’t much of a football fan. He insists he’s never even watched a Super Bowl.

”I don’t watch sports http://www.thejaguarsfootballauthentic.com/gardner-minshew-ii-jersey-authentic ,” Cox said. ”You know that.”

If he spends the night getting in Tom Brady’s face and helps the Eagles win their first NFL title since 1960, Cox may want to watch the highlights sometime.

First, all that matters is winning.

”We haven’t been talked about all year,” Cox said. ”That’s our story. No one has been talking about the Eagles, the defense, or the offense. If you go back and look, we finished in the top five of a bunch of different categories. This team just keeps finding ways to win, and that’s our motto.”

Cox, the 12th overall pick in the 2012 draft Garrett Bradbury Jersey , had 5+ sacks in 14 games, recovered two fumbles and returned one for a touchdown. He often faces two or three blockers, so that allows his teammates opportunities to make plays.

”Cox is as good as anybody in the league at his position,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. ”He’s a very disruptive player, hard to block, run, pass, no matter what it is.”

Earning praise from Belichick doesn’t come easy. Cox appreciates it.

”It’s a lot of respect from a coach like Belichick, a guy that’s been around http://www.thevikingsfootballauthentic.com/irv-smith-jr.-jersey-authentic , a guy that’s seen a lot of great players in this league,” he said. ”For him to say that that means I obviously must be doing something right. But at the same time, I’ve got three other guys besides me that’s helping me push that limit, that’s helping me get that recognition and I want to do the same thing for those guys.”

The Eagles have plenty of depth on their defensive line. Ends Brandon Graham and Vinny Curry and tackle Tim Jernigan start along with Cox. Chris Long, Derek Barnett and Beau Allen also played at least 40 percent of the snaps.

”I wish it was just four (linemen),” Belichick said. ”It’s a very disruptive group. They have some edge rushers, a good interior pass rush. They come hard every play. You have to block them on every play. There are no plays off. To deal with that front down after down, they wear you down. It’s a great group and a huge strength for their defense.”

Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz has enough confidence in all the players to rotate them in and out for series at a time. Because they split reps, they still look fresh this late in the season. It showed in a pair of dominant performances against the Falcons and Vikings in the playoffs.

”To roll in that many guys and not see a drop-off Alexander Mattison Jersey , it’s great,” Cox said. ”We’re pushing those guys to be on the same level as us.”

Cox knows harassing Brady is the key to success against the Patriots. The Giants sacked Brady five times in their stunning Super Bowl upset 10 years ago, spoiling New England’s perfect season.

Led by Cox and Graham, the Eagles generate a strong rush without having to blitz much. They’ll need to keep extra defenders in the secondary against Brady.

”It’s going to come down to the front four guys getting after the quarterback, making him uncomfortable in the pocket,” Cox said.

Easier said than done against Brady.



AP NFL website: The Latest on a suspected drunken-driving crash that killed Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and another man (all times local):

2:45 p.m.

Indiana prosecutors are seeking a DNA sample from the Guatemalan man charged in a drunken-driving crash that killed Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and an Uber driver.

Ryan Mears is chief trial deputy for the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office. He says the request stems from the numerous aliases used by the suspect.

Investigators say the suspect, 37-year-old Manuel Orrego-Savala, has twice been deported from the U.S. and was illegally living in the country at the time of Sunday’s crash in Indianapolis. Along with Jackson, the crash killed 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe.

Mears says investigators want to compare the DNA to samples taken from inside the pickup truck that hit and killed the two victims along Interstate 70.

Mears says the tests will help determine Orrego-Savala’s identity and presence in the truck. But he notes that there’s already ”pretty strong circumstantial evidence in the case.”

An Indiana prosecutor is decrying President Donald Trump and others for politicizing the case of a Guatemalan man charged in a drunken-driving crash that killed an Indianapolis Colts player and his Uber driver.

Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry says he’s disheartened by what he calls ”ghoulish and inappropriate public commentary” surrounding the Sunday crash.

The Democrat is handling the criminal case against the suspect http://www.thevikingsfootballauthentic.com/dru-samia-jersey-authentic , 37-year-old Manuel Orrego-Savala. He was charged in Marion County on Wednesday with four felony counts.

Curry says comments from Trump and others about the man’s immigration status fail to acknowledge the deaths of men killed: Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and his Uber driver, Jeffrey Monroe.

Trump tweeted about the case Tuesday, saying it’s ”so disgraceful” that Jackson was killed by a person who was in the U.S. illegally. Trump also prodded Democrats to work with him on illegal immigration and border security.

The attorney for a Guatemalan man charged in a drunken-driving crash that killed Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and another man says his client is distraught and confused.

Defense attorney Jorge Torres spoke Wednesday after a Marion County judge entered a not guilty plea for his client, 37-year-old Manuel Orrego-Savala.

The case has gained attention from President Donald Trump and others in the immigration debate. Authorities say Orrego-Savala has twice been deported from the U.S.

Torres says his client’s immigration status has no bearing on the crash case. He notes that Orrego-Savala has been living in Indiana for several years and doing construction work in the Indianapolis area.

Orrego-Savala is facing four felony counts stemming from the Sunday crash. The charges include causing death while driving intoxicated. The two most serious counts each carry maximum sentences of up to 20 years in prison.

A Marion County judge entered a not guilty plea for 37-year-old Manuel Orrego-Savala during a court hearing Wednesday.

He’s charged with four felony counts related to the crash early Sunday along Interstate 70 in Indianapolis. The charges are causing death while driving intoxicated and leaving the scene of an accident.

Orrego-Savala’s only responses in court were answering through an interpreter as the judge explained the proceedings and charges.

Police say the 26-year-old Jackson and his 54-year-old Uber driver, Jeffrey Monroe, were standing outside Monroe’s car along the interstate when they were struck by a pickup truck Orrego-Savala was driving.

Authorities say Orrego-Savala was deported from the U.S. in 2007 and 2009, and he was again living illegally in the U.S., in Indianapolis.

Police say the 26-year-old Jackson and 54-year-old Uber driver Jeffrey Monroe were standing outside Monroe’s car along I-70 when they were struck by a pickup truck that Orrego-Savala was driving.
