BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Super Bowl 52's a week from Sunday in Minnesota between the Patriots and Eagles, and twice this postseason, the Pats have rallied for wins by an average score of about 30-17.

We saw the importance of stamina last weekend against the Jaguars and certainly in last year's historic Super Bowl comeback versus the Falcons.

Bill Belichick was asked if stamina and tempo are emphasized any extra this time of year, but he said ... not really.

"We strive for that at the beginning of the year, middle of the year, end of the year, anytime," he said. "And we know in this league, as competitive and as evenly-balanced as this league is, a lot of times when one or two plays determine the outcome of the game or at this point in time the outcome of the season, and how critical those are, we've got to do the best we can to prepare for any of those situations that might come up."

Eagles have rallied twice these playoffs as well with wins over the Falcons and Vikings.

Oh, and you're probably wondering whether Rob Gronkowski will play in the Big Game after sustaining a concussion last week. Belichick said we'll all have to wait for the injury report.
