It felt like it was a foregone conclusion. Tom Brady with just over two minutes to go to win his unprecedented sixth Super Bowl title.
The game by both offenses was just incredible.
Doug Pederson and Josh McDaniels put on a master class in preparation, timing and then the offensive execution.
Tom Brady played maybe his best game of his career in Super Bowl LII, putting up an incredible performance, 28/47 for 505 yards and three touchdowns. Yet, he was not alone.
Nick Foles was brilliant, going 28/43 373 yards and three touchdowns.
The Eagles running game was also clicking, gaining 164 yards on 26 carries and scoring one touchdown on the ground.
Both defenses we’re completely overmatched in this game, but for the Philadelphia Eagles, with time winding down in the fourth quarter, their defense, their veteran defender Brandon Graham, made the one play they had to have.
Graham beat Shaq Mason inside and strip sacked Tom Brady, on the only sack by either team of the night, and it set the Eagles up to go ahead by eight.
Jake Elliott, rookie kicker for the Eagles, stepped up and calmly botted a 46-yard field goal through the middle, and set the Eagles up by eight.
There was a little over a minute remaining, but it was too little too late for the Patriots, and while Tom Brady is perhaps the greatest ever, on this day, it wasn’t enough.
Congrats to the Philadelphia Eagles and their fans on their first Super Bowl win in franchise history.
