NFL - Super Bowl 52 Recap

The Philadelphia Eagles shocked the world and beat the mighty New England Patriots, 41-33 to win Super Bowl 52 in Minneapolis, Minnesota as backup quarterback Nick Foles threw for three touchdowns and also caught a touchdown pass to end the first half scoring.
Foles (pictured at left) was named the Most Valuable Player for the game as the Eagles won their first ever Super Bowl title. The Patriots took a short lived 33-32 lead in the fourth quarter before the Eagles drove downfield and took the lead right back when Foles connected with tight end Zach Ertz for an eleven-yard touchdown pass.
From there, the Eagles defense got a crucial fumble recovery when Pats' QB Tom Brady was sacked and stripped of the football deep in his own territory. Eagles kicker Jake Elliott drilled a 46-yard field goal to provide the final score.
In the losing effort, Brady passed for 505 yards with three touchdown passes, but couldn't get it done in the clutch this time as the Patriots suffered their third setback (they have five victories) in the Super Bowl during the Bill Belichick-Tom Brady era.
The two teams combined for 1,151 total yards in the game - a Super Bowl record while also seeing just one punt during the game.
