Eagles coach Doug Pederson was an unlikely hero after two incredibly risky fourth down plays — one at the end of the first half and another with the game on the line in the fourth quarter — delivered the ultimate success.
Pederson became an instant Philly hero by delivering the city its first championship since — but it was how he did it that will make him a legend. His first major gamble came with 38 seconds remaining in the first half and the Eagles looking to extend a lead. After wild end-to-end action in the second half, New England took its first lead of the game at with just over nine minutes left in the game. Facing fourth-and-1 on his own yard line, Pederson refused to punt and was rewarded as Foles made a crucial completion.
Pederson had delivered a masterclass. Doug Pederson cojones are the size of church bells. Big brass ones on that Doug Pederson. Tom Brady played lights out. Brady was incredible all game, throwing for a Super Bowl record yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions.
But needing a touchdown to retake the lead with two minutes on the clock, he fumbled the ball as Graham hit him and the Eagles recovered it to all but secure the trophy.
New England was gunning for its sixth Super Bowl of the Bill Belichick-Brady era but will be forced to come back next year and attempt to win it with a year-old quarterback.
Philadelphia will start planning its defence knowing its Super Bowl victory came without its best player. New England needed a touchdown for its first lead of the game and the Tom Brady-Rob Gronkowski connection delivered again. New England dialled up its defence as it looked to end the game but the Eagles just kept fighting. Philly coach Doug Pederson continued to be willing to take big risks, refusing to punt on fourth down at midfield. He was rewarded as Foles hit Zach Ertz for a first down.
After 14 plays and 75 yards, Foles hit Zach Ertz for an yard touchdown and Philly was back in front. The Eagles gained four yards on three running plays as they positioned themselves for a field goal. Jake Elliott made no mistake from 46 yards to make it an eight-point game with 65 seconds on the clock. He kept the Pats alive by hitting Danny Amendola on fourth down but the clock was down to 26 seconds and they were still 78 yards from the end zone.
Brady sent a high ball to the end zone but it was broken up as Philly held on. Tom Brady connected repeatedly with tight end Rob Gronkowski, including a short touchdown pass, to begin the New England revival.
Brady actually missed a wide open Gronk on the first play of the second half, before hitting him four times for gains of 25, 24, eight and five yards to make it Brady has already thrown for yards and is well within reach of his Super Bowl record of from a year ago.
Foles was playing pretty good too though. Two more key third down completions put the Eagles within sight of the end zone and that was all Foles needed as he hit Corey Clement for a yard touchdown catch.
The wild end-to-end action continued as Brady took his tally past yards. New England went 75 yards in seven plays to score via a Chris Hogan reception. Foles and the Eagles offence went back to work, reaching the New England yard line as time expired. With a quarter to play, the teams had already combined for the most yards ever in a Super Bowl. Gisele Bundchen, the supermodel wife of New England quarterback Tom Brady, found herself the target of relentless scorn after her husband failed to haul in an attempted catch in the first half of the Super Bowl.
Several social media users revived the quote after Brady was unable to catch the ball after being targeted by receiver Danny Amendola on a trick play today that likely would have ended in a touchdown. Gisele, maybe Tom can't catch the ball at all. Guess Gisele Bundchen was right a few years ago Philadelphia produced its own piece of genius to catch the New England defence off guard — and unlike Brady, Foles made no mistake.
The play of the year. He can catch it, Gisele!!!! Nick Foles can throw and catch the ball. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Gisele. New England's Ryan Allen mishandles the ball. New England finished emptyhanded after an eight-play yard drive courtesy of a missed Steve Gostkowski field goal.
A superb open field tackle by Rodney McLeod, who caught Brandin Cooks as he attempted to leap over him, ended the Pats drive. But punter Ryan Allen mishandled a low snap by Joe Cardona and the delay in placing the ball for Gostkowski appeared to put off the kicker, who sent a reverse torpedo wide left.
Snap was a bit low for Ryan Allen there.. He lied motionless on the ground before exiting the game. He was later ruled out of the game. After a bad snap, Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski hits the upright on a missed field goal attempt. Eagles still up Nick Foles threw a yard touchdown to Alshon Jeffery, giving the Eagles a lead over the Patriots.
However, the Eagles missed the extra point with a bad kick. Eagles take the lead. Eagles lead with 2: Patriots are finally on the board with their first quarter score for a field goal. Game is tied up The Eagles had a first down at the 5 after Corey Clement's yard gain on a catch and run.
But a penalty and two incomplete passes forced Philadelphia to settle for the field goal. The Patriots will take over looking for their first points in the first quarter in eight Super Bowl appearances with quarterback Tom Brady.
Quarterback Nick Foles had completions of 17 yards to Alshon Jeffery and 15 yards to Torrey Smith the play after Smith had a drop on second down. Sixteen Medal of Honor recipients were on the field. One recipient from his service in World War II flipped the coin.
The Philadelphia Eagles will start the game with the ball and hope to be the first team to score on the opening possession of the Super Bowl since Devin Hester returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown for Chicago against Indianapolis in the game. Timberlake said he looked up to Prince and admired him during a press conference days ago in Minnesota.
It was the same day the pop star held a listening party for his new album at Paisley Park. Holograms of A-list celebrities have appeared in recent years, from Tupac Shakur to Roy Orbison, whose hologram is set to go on a tour. In an AP interview Saturday, Sting said he would not want to have his likeness portrayed in a hologram.
God knows who they will team me up with, you know. I'm going to write in my will that I am not to be hologrammed," he said. Kelly Clarkson says she's not worried about Pink nailing the national anthem at the Super Bowl despite having the flu. When asked if she would fill in for Pink if needed, Clarkson said, "I don't think Pink will need anybody to fill in for her. Even Pink with the flu is still hands down one of the best vocalists of our generation.
Pink performed sick at a concert Friday in Minnesota and said it's easy to become under the weather when you're a mother of two children. Clarkson echoed her sentiments. So we're sick sometimes. She said she enjoys performing for sports fans. And they're the underdog, right? So, you know, it's kind of cool," she said.
