The Eagles will attempt to do precisely that when they face the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII on Feb. 4 (6:30 p.m. ET) at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
"That's obviously a real question. That's a real issue that you have," Pederson said Thursday of facing the five-time Super Bowl champion Patriots.
"These guys have been there. They've done it. They've proven it time and time again. My biggest focus with the team is let's just focus on today. Let's just win today. Let's get better today, and we'll worry about that when we get to the game.
"Obviously, it's a credit to what the Patriots have done, and their careers, and their history, and everybody is trying to win championships like that, but we've just got to focus on today."
The Eagles have played the underdog role since quarterback Carson Wentz was lost for the season with a torn ACL. The NFC's top seed, however, edged the Atlanta Falcons in the divisional round before breezing to a 38-7 rout of the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship Game.
The Patriots and Eagles have met once before in the big game, in Super Bowl XXXIX on Feb. 6, 2005. The Patriots won 24-21 with Tom Brady throwing for 236 yards and two touchdowns.
Philadelphia also lost its other appearance in the big game, dropping a 27-10 decision to the Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl XV.
New England will play in its ninth Super Bowl on Sunday after rallying from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter to post a 24-20 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Championship Game.
"You know what? If I make this all about them, we're in trouble," Pederson said. "Honestly, we're in trouble. Everything's going to be written about it -- everything has been written about it -- talked about it, debated, and it's about us. I'll keep saying that. It's about what we do and how well we execute, and I can't worry about that."
