Eagles hold off Patriots in Super Bowl LII

The City of Brotherly Love is celebrating its first Super Bowl victory, and its first NFL championship since 1960. 

Zach Ertz lunged for the go-ahead touchdown and Brandon Graham stripped Tom Brady of the ball near the two minute warning to send the Philadelphia Eagles to a 41-33 win over the New England Patriots.  The Patriots led 33-32 until Nick Foles engineered a 14-play, 75-yard drive that ended with Ertz's eleven-yard reception.  Jake Elliott added a 46-yard field goal with 1:10 to play, giving the Eagles an eight-point cushion.  Philly's defense stopped New England on a potential tying drive in the final minute, preventing the Patriots from tying the Pittsburgh Steelers' record of six Super Bowl victories.  Foles was outstanding, completing 28-43 passes for 373 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.  He also became the first quarterback to catch a touchdown pass in a Super Bowl, a nine-yard grab that put the Eagles ahead 22-12 just before halftime.  Brady put up sensational numbers, throwing for a playoff-record 505 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions.  But his late fumble was damaging as he fell to 5-3 in Super Bowls.  The two teams set an NFL playoff record by combining for 1,151 yards, 613 by the Patriots.
