On Sunday February 4th, 2018, the National Football League concluded another action-packed season. The Philadelphia Eagles faced The New England Patriots in a brand-new, state-of-the-art dome, the U.S. Bank Stadium, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Quarterback Tom Brady and the Patriots came up short of their 6th Super Bowl win; the Eagles achieved a 41-33 victory and their first Super Bowl championship in franchise history. The Eagles’ 2nd string Quarterback Nick Foles won the Super Bowl’s Most Valuable Player award after throwing for 373 yards and  scoring 3 touchdown passes. Also, Foles caught a pass for a score for the underdogs.

The Eagles had a 13-3 record during the regular season, and overcame injuries from key starters such as starting quarterback Carson Wentz, who suffered a torn ACL. Philadelphia’s defense played a key role throughout the game as the Eagles stopped Brady on the final two drives in the 4th quarter.

According to a press release from The American Gaming Association, “Americans will wager approximately $4.76 billion on Super Bowl 52.” 

Junior Charles Nji said he believed the Super Bowl LII “was a great Super Bowl, one of the greatest ever, it [felt] like [watching] college football…[the teams] going back and forth.” Nji also said that “it came down to 2 crucial plays: the sack on Brady and that Eagles touchdown the drive before.”  

Junior Tyler Hampton-Slade said “I thought the Patriots [were] going to pull a cheat card and come back and win…it’s the Super Bowl…never know what to expect anything can happen.”

Now, after winning their first-ever Vince Lombardi Trophy, the Eagles look to celebrating with fans in downtown Philadelphia on Thursday, February 8th.
