Eagles Outduel the Patriots to Win Super Bowl LII

By Staff  |  02/05/2018

If you're one of the rare portion of the population to miss Sunday's Super Bowl, it was the Philadelphia Eagles who came out victorious over the favorite New England Patriots, led by Tom Brady.

The team out-dueled the Pats in a nearly all-offense game, which came down to the last play and ended with 41-33 on the scoreboard.

For the Eagles, it was the team's first Super Bowl win in franchise history, and first championship in 58 years -- the team previously won three titles (1948, 1949, 1960), pre-Super Bowl era.

The Eagles were underdogs going into the game, held at the US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis and led by a backup quarterback in Nick Foles -- who was also named Super Bowl MVP.

Super Bowl LII wasn't without its records either. There was 1,151 yards in total offense from both teams, more than any other Super Bowl in league history.
