The Philadelphia Eagles Defeat the New England Patriots at Super Bowl LII

The Philadelphia Eagles defeated the New England Patriots, 41-33 in the fourth quarter, for the 52nd Super Bowl at the US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This is the Eagles’ first Super Bowl title, ending the Patriots’ five-win streak and preventing what would have been Tom Brady’s sixth championship. The last time the Eagles and Patriots met in a Super Bowl was 13 years ago, with the Patriots taking the win by a mere three points. Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles wins Super Bowl LII MVP after 373-yard, three touchdown performance.

Game Highlights

Quarter 1: Eagles lose the coin toss, but start with the ball. The first quarter begins with a Gronkowski false start, giving the first playoff penalty against the New England offense. Foles and Jeffery lock in a 34-yard score that was the longest touchdown pass the Patriots have allowed since the opening week of the season, giving the Eagles a 9-3 lead at the end of quarter one.

Quarter 2: Early in the second quarter, Patriots wideout Brandin Cooks rules out for the rest of the game after taking a big hit from Eagles defensive back Malcolm Jenkins.
