Underdog Eagles stun Patriots to win Super Bowl

Then, with the ball in Brady's hands, the usual primetime performer collapsed in the pocket and fumbled the ball, which the Eagles recovered.

For the first time, its beloved Philadelphia Eagles are Super Bowl champions.

"That was so sweet", Barnett said afterward. "I mean, if they overturn that, I don't even know what's a catch anymore", Ertz said.

The most important of the nine times Foles threw his way was that play that culminated with the ball popping up in the air after Ertz landed on the green Eagles paint in the end zone.

Newly-crowned 2017 season NFL MVP and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady along with mastermind coach Bill Belichick have won five championships together and will be hard to beat on the big stage. Teams can brace themselves for him, layer on extra protection. "Unfortunately, we just didn't come up with the most opportunities to make to win the game". "It was all about one stop we had to make".

Foles is the first backup quarterback to win a Super Bowl since Brady did it in the 2001 season.

Ex-Patriot LeGarrette Blount's 21-yard dash extended the Eagles' lead to 15-3 before a Stephen Gostkowski field goal and James White's rushing score, which came after Foles threw his only interception, reduced the deficit. But his Super Bowl comeback magic ran out when he allowed Graham to poke the ball loose. "During the whole game, nobody panicked". It was Pederson, a guy one former National Football League general manager called "less qualified to coach a team than anyone I've ever seen in my 30-plus years in the National Football League", out-coaching the greatest coach in the history of the sport. "They played well, they deserve it and they just made more plays".

He was a 41-33 loser only because MVP Nick Foles staged the biggest performance of his life on the biggest stage of his life. It had held their last four opponents - including Minnesota and Atlanta in the postseason - to 10 or fewer points.

For New England, it was a flashback to the beginning of the season, when the Patriots were 2-2 and giving up an average of 32 points per game.

"I'm just going to sit down and reflect on the season".

No punts for the Patriots and just one sack for Philly's deep and vaunted defensive front seven.

The Eagles led 22-12 after a wild, entertaining first half that saw a little bit of everything.

"We were pretty effective tonight", he understated. The other team did.

The weird image of Brady ambling downfield on a pass pattern came three plays after New England lost receiver Brandin Cooks to a concussion on a vicious but clean hit by Malcolm Jenkins in the second quarter.

Defensive coordinator Matt Patricia said it's always a process inputting the game plan, based on which players will be available to play. "That's the way this team has been all year". But there will be losses to the coaching staff and to some key players.

It quickly prompted viewers to head to social media to make the same joke at Brady's expense. But on the play that redeemed Philadelphia's defense and likely saved this historic victory, Graham found himself one-on-one with guard Joe Thuney.
