Cox hopes to tap into his ‘Super powers’ against Patriots 


Eagles defensive end Fletcher Cox sported a wrestling mask that had he contended had “super powers.”

A reporter from Mexico gave him the mask. 

“We just have to be our selves,” said Cox, who’s not getting too worked about facing the quarterback Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. “We can’t focus on one guy. We have to focus on their whole offense. They’ve got a lot of great players.”

Brady may be the player with the super powers. 

“He’s been around for a while,” Cox said. “He’s been in those situations so many times that those situations have become natural to him.”
