The Super Bowl Survival Guide is my favorite article to write each year because researching shirtless photos of football players is a welcome research opportunity.
This year the Patriots and Eagles are heading to the Super Bowl, but this isn’t the first time these two teams battled it out on the field. At the conclusion of the 2004 season during Super Bowl XXXIX, both teams entered the fourth quarter tied before the Patriots prevailed with a 24-21 win.
But theres no collaborative spirit in this blog post because the winners here are chosen purely on individual vanity. The hotties with the sexiest bodies are topping my list.
So let’s undress these men and learn some gnarly facts so you too can sound sporty at you Super Bowl Fiesta! Get ready for some serious eye candy below.
New England Patriots
Quarterback · 12
If football players aged like wine, then Tom Brady would be a fine vintage ready for sipping. Rumor has it that this 40 year old hottie is ready for retirement, but Brady won’t hear of it because he still feels at his prime. With an Under Pressure Passer Rating of 95.5 towering over his Eagles Quarterback opponent Nick Foles’ 62.4 rating, we know that Brady will make the right call during the game. Brady is determined to bring home his sixth Super Bowl Ring (and third Brickellista Sexy Award) so nothing is going to stop him. Not even his age.
When Brady named his “man crushes” he listed Rob Gronkowski, Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman. And what a coinkidink, these boys also top my list.
Tight End · 87
Don’t you wish you were this kitten? I do. Rob is the Patriots’ Tight End and his tight end captured my heart when I saw his photoshoot filled with kittens. He’s not only sexy on the field but his goofy personality makes him a catch off the field as well. This 6’6″ hunk of burnin’ love has 76 career touchdowns and is a former Rhodes Scholar, so you know he brings his A-game everywhere he goes. Rob is determined to play this Sunday, but is still in the NFL’s concussion protocol, which could keep him off the field during the Super Bowl. But who cares about that… because he could be the next Mr. Brickellista! Rob’s family has a blog, so it’s safe to say he is building the resume for the role. Holler atcha girl Rob!

Wide Receiver · 80
An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but it doesn’t keep Brickellista from wanting a slice. Amendola is a slice of heaven chiseled to perfection. When he and Tom Brady are on the field, you’re basically watching the most attractive NFL players—and it’s just so hard to pull our eyes away from the screen. Amendola is always a winner in my book with his third Brickellista Sexy Award. Amendola has appeared in two Super Bowls with the Patriots and caught a combined 13 passes for 126 yards with two touchdowns. His fourth quarter touchdowns in both Super Bowls aided record comebacks and his two-point conversion in Super Bowl LI tied the game in the waning moment of regulation that New England eventually won in overtime. Simply stated, he’ll be the key player to bring home another victory.
Wide Receiver · 11
This is Julian Edelman’s first time on this list, but don’t be fooled this chiseled stud muffin has been primping earn a spot. His sexy photoshoot coupled with an infectious personality, Edelman quickly claimed his right on the list. Edelman caught the game-winning, three-yard touchdown pass from Brady with 2:06 left to play in the fourth quarter of the Patriots’ 28-24 Super Bowl XLIX win vs. Seattle. He’s needed on the field this Sunday… if only he could play shirtless then we would all be winners.
Quarterback · 9
Nick is just my type – a blonde haired, blue eyed, 6’6″ tall drink of water. Too bad he’s married. But it’s not too bad that his pecs look divine in tight navy blue shirts. This viking looking man is heading to his first Super Bowl and will be going head to head against Brady. Don’t let age fool you, Nick was just 11 when he watched Brady take home his first Super Bowl trophy, and has been learning Brady’s moves since. Folks is the Eagles’ all-time leader in passer rating (94.2), Foles has completed 776-of-1,285 (60.4%) attempts for 9,215 yards, 56 TDs and an 88.2 passer rating in 42 career games. This hunk comes with moves and I won’t stop watching him.
Linebacker · 95
Yes Mychal, we’re ALL buying tickets to your gun show and we won’t stop so long as you keep flexing. Kendricks played in 70 regular-season games (61 starts) for the Eagles in five seasons and compiled 453 tackles and 12.0 sacks. He’s the glue that keeps his team together constantly placing his needs aside and giving props to his teammates. This swoon worthy, seemingly quiet guy is all about family and attributes much of his demeanor to his mom (aww!). And with his brother Eric also playing in the NFL, it’s no wonder this guy is braced for competition! Michael also knows how to keep it real and stay humble.

Defensive End · 56
Chris Long faces his former Patriots teammates this Sunday as he was recently signed by the Philadelphia Eagles on March 31, 2017. He spent the 2016 season with the Super Bowl LI-winning Patriots and he’s ready for another victory, but this time for the Eagles. In his 130 career regular-season games, Chris compiled 398 tackles (246 solo), 80 TFL, 58.5 sacks, 12 PDs, 9 FFs, and 6 FRs. Luckily I found this undercover hottie and he topped my list with his bad boy persona. I’m not into tattoos, but Chris makes ink look sexy.
Tight End · 87
If there’s a player to watch on Sunday it would be Brent and his biceps. The longest tenured Eagle is one of the toughest, most reliable players in the team’s history, and does it all from the tight end position. He’s a big target in the passing game, a relentless blocker and an unquestioned leader on the squad. Brent is determined to bring home a Super Bow title for his team. I love determination in a man and tight ends, seems like we are destined for a beautiful life together. Brent, feel free to call me after the big game, I’ll be rooting for you.
Don’t mind me, I’ll just be gawking at the TV this Sunday staring at my hotties. No shame. Just make sure to pass the guacamole.
