Tom Brady sheds the gloves.

Temperatures hovered around 3 degrees Fahrenheit on Sunday afternoon, but Tom Brady, who had insisted all week that he was wearing gloves indoors because it was chilly, showed up to U.S. Bank Stadium bare-handed. With his throwing hand — which had been injured prior to the A.F.C. championship game — appearing positively hand-like, it looks like he got the media to talk about a non-issue all week.

Eagles fans outnumber Patriots fans in Minneapolis.

The New England Patriots are officially the home team for Super Bowl LII, but it sure doesn’t feel that way in Minneapolis’s U.S. Bank Stadium. Fans wearing Eagles jerseys dramatically outnumber their counterparts wearing Patriots gear, perhaps 2-to-1 or 3-to-1, and the biggest boos during warm-ups were reserved for Tom Brady.

The roughly 73,000 Super Bowl tickets were distributed in a precise manner. The Patriots and Eagles were each given 17.5 percent; the Vikings, as the host, were given 5 percent; the other 29 N.F.L. teams were given 1.2 percent each; and the remaining 25 percent were kept by the N.F.L. for staff, media, players and corporate sponsors, and to sell as part of expensive hospitality packages.

According to ticket reseller StubHub, on every day in the week leading up to the Super Bowl they sold the most tickets to residents of Pennsylvania, followed by Massachusetts.

2018 Super Bowl: History proves that Eagles vs. Patriots should be another thriller.

Here are the top story lines for Super Bowl LII:

• The game is a matchup of teams that excelled on both sides of the ball. Philadelphia scored the third most points in the N.F.L. and allowed the fourth fewest. New England was second in scoring and allowed the fifth fewest points.

• The injury to Wentz was a blow to the Eagles, but it should not be discounted how much the loss of Jason Peters affects Philadelphia in a game like this. A left tackle selected to nine of the previous 10 Pro Bowls, Peters tore multiple ligaments in his knee in a Week 7 win over Washington and was put on injured reserve. Halapoulivaati Vaitai has done his best to fill in, but he is a downgrade who gives Foles far less time to work than Peters did while protecting his blind side.

• At 40 years 185 days old, Brady will become the oldest quarterback to play in a Super Bowl, supplanting his longtime rival Peyton Manning, who won Super Bowl 50 for the Denver Broncos when he was 39 years 320 days old. The 11-year gap between Brady and Foles is not extreme, but the youngest member of the Eagles, Derek Barnett, was 5 when Brady won his first Super Bowl.

• Nothing looms larger than Philadelphia’s switch at quarterback from Wentz, a mobile passer, to Foles, a pocket passer who initially struggled to move the ball after Wentz was lost for the season. It was a different story in the National Football Conference championship game. Foles, regularly using the run-pass option offense, shredded the Minnesota Vikings’ terrific defense. He cites his experience as a star high school basketball player for his comfort in a system that seems more geared to quarterbacks with foot speed.
