For the second straight year, Malcom Brown is headed back to the Super Bowl. The former Longhorn is looking to get his second Super Bowl ring, as well. He’ll be facing former Longhorn teammates Marcus Johnson and Jordan Hicks. No matter who wins, this marks the 11th straight year that a Texas Longhorn will be a Super Bowl Champion.
Nick Foles is looking to become the second quarterback from Austin Westlake High School to win a Super Bowl. The other was Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who reached out to Foles this past week. Westlake is the second high school to produce two quarterbacks to start in the Super Bowl.
Nick said he got a text from fellow Austin Westlake HS graduate Drew Brees, who knows something about playing QB in the Super Bowl.— Reuben Frank (@RoobNBCS) January 30, 2018
“He did reach out and I’m grateful for that. He’s 10 years older than me, and he's a guy I’ve looked up to since I was younger."
Only two high schools have produced two QBs who will have started a Super Bowl: Austin Westlake (Brees, Foles), and Isidore Newman School in New Orleans (Manning brothers).— Brian McTaggart (@brianmctaggart) January 22, 2018

Result: Patriots 24, Jaguars 20
Malcom Brown (DT-NE): Brown had four solo tackles and was huge in stopping the run in the second half. After struggling to crack the lineup during the season, Brown is playing at a high level in the postseason.
Result: Eagles 38, Vikings 7
Brian Robison (DE-MIN): In what possibly could of been his last NFL game, Robison had one lone tackle.
The 34-year-old defensive end reflected on the season in a very heartfelt Instagram post.

New England Patriots (DT Malcom Brown) vs. Philadelphia Eagles (WR Marcus Johnson, LB Jordan Hicks*)
Earl Thomas played in his Longhorn record-breaking 6th Pro Bowl on Sunday. He recorded one solo tackle and a pass deflection as the NFC lost 24-23.
Former second-round draft pick and Longhorn great defensive back Aaron Williams announced his retirement from the NFL after six seasons. Excellent read in a Players’ Tribune letter.
