The Eagles are Super Bowl champions and their fans are celebrating as such.
For the first time in history, the Philadelphia Eagles are Super Bowl champions. The Eagles held off Tom Brady and the New England Patriots late, emerging with a 41-33 victory that featured plenty of offense.
Nick Foles, who went from backup quarterback to Super Bowl champion, finished 28-of-43 for 373 yards and three touchdowns with one interception. He also won the game's MVP award for his efforts.
Tom Brady, in the loss, finished 28-of-48 for 505 yards and three touchdowns. His final pass was a Hail Mary try - which was almost caught - on the last play of the game.
Philadelphia took the lead for good on an 11-yard pass from Foles to Zach Ertz with just over two minutes to play in the fourth quarter. Brady fumbled on the ensuing drive, which turned the tide in the contest.
The Eagles added a field goal with just over a minute to play. Brady and the Patriots got the ball back for one final possession, but couldn't get down the field quickly enough.
As you'd imagine, Eagles fans are going bonkers in celebration. Bars are packed, streets are crowded, and fires are burning.
