Watch: Here's The Final Play Of Super Bowl XLII

Tom Brady throws a Hail Mary in the Super Bowl.

Super Bowl XLII is in the books.

The Philadelphia Eagles have finally won a Super Bowl, beating the New England Patriots 41-33. The Patriots stopped Tom Brady twice in the last few minutes of the game to boot.

So the Lombardi Trophy is coming to Philly. Let's see how this one ended.

After Jake Elliott kicked a 46-yard field goal with 1:04 remaining to put Philly up eight, Brady and the Pats had less than a minute and no timeouts after an ill-fated reverse attempt on the ensuing kickoff.

Of course, in typical Brady fashion, the Pats made it interesting. They converted a 4th-and-10 on a diving catch by Danny Amendola and then moved the ball near midfield on some short tosses to Rob Gronkowski.

After Brady was nearly picked off by Ronald Darby, there was time for one more play.

Brady escaped pressure in the pocket and launched a heave toward the goal line. The ball was batted around, and it looked like a Pats receiver had a shot at it for a split second.

However, the ball fell harmlessly to the turf.

With this game in the books, the only drama is how much will be left of the city of Philadelphia in the morning.

The city hasn't seen an NFL title since 1960 and has never won a Super Bowl. The streets are gonna be a mob scene for sure.
