This years super bowl broke a lot of records. It was a classic shoot-out (a lot of offense) of The New England Patriots vs The Philadelphia Eagles. The Patriots have been favored to win since the beginning of the season so it wasn’t surprising to see them in the big game. On the other hand it has been a roller coaster ride for the Eagles. Heading into the last 3 games they were a lock for the NFC’s 1st seed. Then a tragic play happened and their star QB Carson Wentz tore his ACL and was out for the rest of the season. This didn’t phase the Eagles at all.

Their backup, Nick Foles, played out of his mind. Leading them to a Super Bowl Victory and winning every game on the way there. Foles was named Super Bowl MVP after throwing 300 yards and combining for 4 TD. (3 pass, 1 rec). Tom Brady had a great game throwing for 505 yards (A playoff record) and 3 touchdowns, but Tom Brady’s fumble with two minutes left caused the patriots to lose 41-33. 1,100 yards of total offense was allowed this game. This is the most in any game in NFL history! A classic super bowl that Eagles fans won’t forget because the first one is always the best.

This was Tom Brady’s eighth Super Bowl appearance which is a NFL record. He has 5 Super Bowl rings which is tied for the most all time. Eli Manning and Nick Foles are the only QBs to beat Brady in a Super Bowl.

The game came down to a controversial catch that the Eagles got to give the Eagles a 38-33 lead. Most patriots fan think the ball hit the ground before the Eagles player made a “football move”. But as replay showed he took 3 steps and dove for the goal line and it was confined as a TD. This gave the Eagles the lead and eventually the Super Bowl LII win.
