Everyone loves a good underdog story, and the Philadelphia Eagles did not disappoint in this year’s super bowl.

Philly’s opponent, the big, bad, New England Patriots, boast five Super Bowl rings from the last two decades. Led by their veteran quarterback Tom Brady, who many people argue is the greatest QB of all time, the Pats were the heavy favorites to bring home the title.

The Eagles had a less impressive resume, having never won a franchise Super Bowl in all the years of them being in the NFL. Their starting quarterback, Nick Foles, began the season as backup to superstar Carson Wentz, but got his chance to shine as Wentz went out with an injury late in the season. Foles picked up the slack perfectly leading the men from Philly to Minnesota for the Super Bowl. This set the stage for what would become a historical game.

The Eagles got out to a quick start, taking the lead 9-3 over New England after the first quarter. At halftime, the Eagles remained in control with a 13-9 lead. With a missed field goal and missed extra point, nothing could be taken for granted in this game.

As Justin Timberlake was rocking it at the halftime show, the Patriots were in the locker room and something seemed to click right before coming out for the start of the second half because the Pats went on to score 14 points to the Eagle’s 7 during the third quarter and Philly fans started to sweat through their shirts.

The Eagles maintained their composure, however, and managed to lead the game 41-33 with one remaining play for the Patriots. It was a long shot, Brady would need to complete a successful hail mary deep in the end zone and then convert a two point conversion just to tie the game. And with sub-ten seconds left to play, this feat seemed almost impossible.

However if history had anything to say about it, you can never count out Tom Brady. Brady launched the football to Patriots’ tight end Rob Gronkowski and all the millions of watching eyes froze in suspense to see if another New England miracle could really happen. The ball made contact with multiple different hands and bounced around the end zone and then finally hit the ground and sealed the deal. The Eagles had won the super bowl.

Celebration broke out on the streets of Philadelphia because or the first time ever they could call themselves super bowl champions. Fans climbed street poles, made bonfires, and parades the streets all sporting their green and blue Eagles jerseys.

Brady and the Patriots will have to take an angry, sad flight home to an angry, sad New England, while the Eagles will return to Philadelphia which is now a city of champions.
