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

The 41-33 victory over the 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 game of the season. Patriots has an experienced squad.

There is the midfielder rated as the best in Tom Brady history and is 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. 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 teammates through four chases with the Patriots to win the Super Bowl Player of the Year award.

This is hardly expected when Foles arrived in Philadelphia in March 2017 as a backup player. It was not until the 14th round, the midfielder in 1989 that was allowed to enter the football field in place of Carson Wentz, who was injured.

In the Super Bowl, Foles successfully passed 28 times out of 43 shots. He made three touches of the ball at the back of the field to score. Foles overcame the shadow of Tom Brady, who won five Super Bowl and four times was voted MVP.

In the match that Brady was not in good shape, 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.
