From that perspective, Sunday's matchup was an incredible success; all of that offense made it arguably the most watchable Super Bowl of all time.
Thanks to the players' collective bargaining agreement with the league, Foles will make exactly as much as the rest of his team for winning the Super Bowl: $112,000.
"Our coach has some guts", Burton said after the game.
Backup quarterback Nick Foles, who almost retired after an underwhelming 2015 season with the St Louis Rams, proved more than ready to shine on the game's biggest stage.
The touchdown stood - and so did thousands of green-clad Eagles fans who weren't going to mind the frigid conditions outside US Bank Stadium once they headed out to celebrate. The left-leaning Eagles are the first team to win since those racially charged comments.
One of the biggest plays of the game came on fourth-and-goal at the one-yard line.
After the game, Long reflected on his and Blount's decisions to leave the Patriots, who have played in eight of the last 16 Super Bowls and won five, to join an Eagles franchise that hadn't won a championship since 1960. "So my thing is, Malcolm is a leader, and I'm here to show support as a white athlete".
Meanwhile, instead of Tom Brady winning a sixth Super Bowl... Foles was almost as prolific with 373 yards and three touchdown passes and also caught a TD pass for the Eagles (16-3). "He bleeds just like I bleed".
103.4 million viewers represents the worst Super Bowl viewership since 2009's Super Bowl when the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Arizona Cardinals 27-23 with 98.7 million people watching. "And then when that play happened, I laughed", Foles said.
"And it worked, Trey made an fantastic throw".
"I knew I couldn't get off this stage (without someone asking that question)", Pederson said, to laughter all around.
The Clement catch was reviewed because he appeared to slightly bobble the ball near the back of the end zone, but the officials ruled that he had both feet inbounds with possession.
New England pulled to within 22-19 after scoring on the opening drive of the second half. "Our defense stepped up and did a nice job to finish it for us".
