The go-ahead 5-yard touchdown pass was thrown by Nick Foles to Zach Ertz with only 2:21 to go. The pass has just given the Philadelphia Eagles the opportunity to outplay the New England Patriots in a 41-33 victory in Super Bowl LII at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday.
The Eagles have just won the franchise’s first Super Bowl title. The last time the Eagles won the NFL title was before the Super Bowl era in 1960.
The first lead of the game was taken by the Patriots, 33-32, with 9:22 left in the fourth quarter. However, this was only for a short while as the Eagles marched down the field to recapture the lead, and then two plays after the ensuing kickoff forced a turnover and converted it into a field goal that provided the final margin.
Considering the combined yardage in NFL history, today’s game is the most prolific playoff game. Brandon Graham stripped Tom Brady and rookie Derek Barnett recovered with 2:09 to play to set up a field goal by Jake Elliott and prevent another late Super Bowl comeback by the Patriots.

The high-scoring matchup blew a 12-point lead for the Eagles before rallying behind their backup quarterback who will go down in Philadelphia lore after throwing for 373 yards and three touchdowns and catching another on a fourth-down trick play.
