Defeating the Patriots, the Philadelphia Eagles won the first Super Bowl

The 41-33 victory over New England Patriots helped “Eagles” become the new champion of American football.

The Philadelphia Eagles were underestimated by the New England Patriots before the final match of the season. The Patriots has an experienced squad, a midfielder considered to be the best in Tom Brady history and was the defending champion before entering the Super Bowl.

However, defender Brandon Graham was the one who put the end to the Patriots with a mighty breakthrough to win the ball in the hands of Tom Brady, helping the Eagles end the match with a score of 41-33. This was the first Super Bowl championship in the club’s history after three NFL national championships in 1948, 1949 and 1960.

Midfielder Nick Foles led his team-mates through four chases with the Patriots to win the Super Bowl Player of the Year (MVP) title. This is hardly expected when Foles arrived in Philadelphia in March 2017 as a backup player. It was not until the 14th round that the midfielder in 1989 was allowed to enter the football field in place of Carson Wentz. In the Super Bowl, Foles successfully passed 28 times out of 43 pitches, creating three touches at the end of the pitch.

Foles overcame the shadow of Tom Brady, who won five Super Bowl and four times was voted MVP. In the match that Brady did not perform well, the loopholes of the Patriots defense made them pay the price. The direct throws of the ball into the middle of Foles and the ability to break through from LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement opened the victory for the Eagles.

Eagles’ defense, meanwhile, has had an excellent day as most of this season. The Graham situation caused Brady to drop the ball and let Derek Barnett win when the game was only about two minutes away when the fans in Philadelphia saw the Super Bowl title.
