TeeRoy's 2 Cents:
- Nick Foles began the season as a bench-warmer and ended it the Super Bowl MVP, throwing for 373 yards and three touchdowns.
- Foles also caught a pass for a touchdown, something that Brady couldn't do.
- A lot of fans complain that the Patriots always get the calls in controversial plays, but this time, the calls went the Eagles way.
The Philadelphia Eagles upset the New England Patriots, 41-33, to win Super Bowl 52 Sunday in Minneapolis.
The Eagles, led by back-up quarterback Nick Foles, dominated most of the game, but the Patriots – as usual – came back and took the lead in the fourth quarter.
Undaunted, the Eagles were able to take the led back with two-minutes-and-22-seconds remaining, and then they thwarted Tom Brady's usual heroics.
In the game's key play, Philly defensive end Brandon Graham was able to find his way into the pocket and hit the ball loose from Brady. Derek Barnett picked up the loose ball with two-minutes-and-16-seconds left.
The Pats got the ball back again, but the Eagles defense was able to shut them down to dethrone the Pats and become Super Bowl champs for the first time in the team's history. (USA Today)
