Eagles hold off Patriots in epic game to win 1st Super Bowl in franchise history

The Eagles held off a dramatic second-half comeback from the New England Patriots to win 41-33, earning their first Super Bowl title in franchise history and handing Tom Brady and Bill Belichick their third defeat on the biggest stage.

In a game stocked full of dramatic - and controversial - moments, Nick Foles and Brady went blow for blow as the two teams produced the most yards in a single game in NFL history. Foles threw for 372 yards, three touchdowns, and added a receiving touchdown while Brady broke his own Super Bowl record with 505 yards.

But it was the defense that ultimately won the game for Philadelphia. Read More Here

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles was named Super Bowl LII MVP after leading his team to a 41-33 victory over the New England Patriots.

Foles completed 28 of 43 passes for 373 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception. He also caught a 1-yard touchdown pass from Trey Burton on a trick play.

The veteran quarterback was thrust into the starting role when Carson Wentz suffered a torn ACL in December, and he went on to outperform even the loftiest of expectations. Read More Here

The football world was treated to one of the best Super Bowl's of all-time Sunday, with the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots combining for a record-breaking performance.

An offensive explosion saw the 41-33 final score mark the second-highest total in Super Bowl history, with a number of records falling.

Here are the four most impressive:

Most total yards in a game in NFL history

The two teams didn't just combine to break the Super Bowl record for most total yards in a game, but the 1,151 combined yards is the most ever in any game in NFL history. Both teams averaged more than 8.5 yards per pass and over five yards per rushing attempt.

Most passing yards by a quarterback in postseason history


Tom Brady's 466 yards passing in last year's dramatic win over the Atlanta Falcons set a new Super Bowl record and the legendary pivot did even better against the Eagles. Brady finished with a stunning 505 yards passing, the most ever by a quarterback in postseason history. He also became the first player in NFL history to top the 400-yard passing mark in the Super Bowl multiple times.

Most combined passing yards in Super Bowl history

Not only did Nick Foles' and Brady's combined 878 yards passing set the Super Bowl record for most total passing yards, but they already had the record entering the fourth quarter. The pair combined for six touchdowns passing and both had a passer rating over 106. Read More Here


Tom Brady tops Super Bowl passing mark: All 17 records broken in Eagles-Patriots

Although Tom Brady won't be taking the Lombardi Trophy home this year, he did etch his name into the record book with his 505-yard passing performance against the Eagles. The passing record was one of 29 records that the two teams broke (17) or tied (12) on Sunday during Philadelphia's wild 41-33 win over New England at U.S. Bank Stadium.  

Of those 29 records, seven of them were personally tied or broken by Brady. The 505-yard passing performance broke a record that Brady just set last year against the Falcons. In the Patriots' 34-28 win over Atlanta, Brady threw for 467 yards. 

Brady also extended many of his career records. In eight Super Bowl games, Brady has racked up more career passing attempts (357), completions (235) and passing yards (2,576) than any other player in Super Bowl history. Brady also has more Super Bowl passing touchdowns (18) than any other player in NFL history. 

With the nonstop offensive fireworks on Sunday, the Patriots and Eagles managed to combine to break multiple records. The two teams set the Super Bowl record for most combined total yards (1,151) and most combined passing yards (874). The 1,151-yard total actually represents the most yards in any NFL game, including the regular season and playoffs.
