Philadelphia Eagles Win Super Bowl LII

The Eagles took home their first Super Bowl in the Super Bowl era last night as they topped the New England Patriots 41-33, marking the first time the Patriots have lost to a team other than the New York Giants with Tom Brady under center and Bill Belichick at head coach in the Super Bowl.

The game showcased one of the best offensive performances in Super Bowl history, as both teams combined for more total yards than any other game in NFL playoff history.

Nick Foles was named Super Bowl MVP and was the main storyline throughout this entire run. Just last season, Foles was considering retiring and never coming back to football. Now, he is hoisting the Lombardi Trophy and defying all odds.

He stepped in when starting quarterback Carson Wentz went down with an injury in the latter parts of the season and exceeded any expectations placed on him.

Perhaps, the biggest play of the game was a gutsy call by Eagles head coach Doug Pederson on fourth down to go for it late in the second quarter. They ran pretty much the same exact play that the patriots ran earlier in the game, but the Eagles actually executed the play with Foles catching a touchdown pass.

This Super Bowl may possibly be the beginning of a rift in the league and the end of the dynasty we know as they New England Patriots. While Brady is still playing at an elite level, he is getting old. Also, Belichick has been rumored to be retiring soon.

For the Eagles, they have one of the brighter futures in the NFL going forward. They have a young team and the quarterback of the future in Carson Wentz. They also will have the option to trade Foles to another team, which will supply them with many assets in exchange for him due to his stellar performance this year.

Regardless, this game was one of the most entertaining in recent memory and reminded us about why we love sports so much.
