Eagles Come away with victory in epic Super Bowl

Super Bowl 52 was a super bowl to remember. The Philadelphia Eagles ended up coming away with a 41-33 victory over the New England Patriots in Sunday’s big game.

The game started rather evenly with field goals from both teams. The Eagles then took a slight lead over the Patriots and the game was very even going into halftime at a score of 22-12. The Patriots received the second half kickoff and took the ball straight down the field for a touchdown and then the offensive fireworks really went on display. The two teams traded touchdowns and points until it was 32-26 after the Patriots defense finally stopped the high flying Eagles offense to force a field goal. The Patriots went on to score a touchdown and take a lead in the middle of the 4th quarter by one point. The Eagles came right back down the field and scored a touchdown while taking a lot of time off of the clock. The Patriots had a chance to go down and win the game with 2:26 left on the clock. The Eagles defense came through for them when Derek Barnett of the Eagles forced a fumble from Tom Brady and they recovered. This pretty much iced the game for the Eagles and they went on to win and become World Champions.

This was a crazy offensive Super Bowl as there was 1,151 total yards of offense which obliterated the old super bowl record. Tom Brady set a passing record for the Super Bowl with 506 yards on 28 of 49 passing. Nick Foles was also great as he recorded 375 passing yards on 29 of 44 passing. In the end it was the Eagles defense that made the one big play to seal the game and the Patriots couldn’t come back. Nick Foles ended up winning the Super Bowl MVP. Congratulations to the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles!
