The Eagles Take It To The Limit And Win

February 5, 2018

In what has become the ‘controlled’ norm, namely a tight Supe, the Philadelphia Eagles won their first NFL crown since 1960 and first Supe ever (41-33) over, (I’ll say!), the still great, New England Patriots.

Nick Foles, who took so much abuse, all totally unwarranted, was the MVP, another so called backup quarterback delivering! A wise, informed man told me about backup qb’s, Tom Brady (500 plus passing yards in defeat),  a prime example).

Doug Pederson correctly went on two fourth down plays, astounding the duo of Michaels/Collinsworth,  and happened to make both.

Surprisingly Bill Belichick (5-3) in Supes called for a field goal try,that was inexplicably missed on 4th and 1 at the “Phil” 10 or so, early in the tilt. I thought then that was a sign.

Foles threw touchdown passes to Alshon Jeffery, Corey Clement, and the decisive one to Zack Ertz, which gave the Eagles the lead to stay, on a third and 7 at the N.E. 11, with just over 2 minutes to play.

Perhaps, even likely, the game/season’s biggest play was made when Corey Graham forced a Brady fumble and Derek Barnett (he had a big fumble recovery when the title tilt/semi was still close) recovered, all but sealing Philly’s first Supe crown.

Also credit to Nelson Agholar, for big gains on the Supe winning drive/possession.



Great job: Nick Foles, pictured above.
