The Philadelphia Eagles are Super Bowl 52 champions after one of the most dramatic NFL season finales in recent memory. Philadelphia defeated the New England Patriots by a final score of 41-33, taking the lead with a Zach Ertz touchdown in the fourth quarter, then sealing the win with a field goal following a fumble by Tom Brady.
Last season, the Patriots were the road team against the Atlanta Falcons. They also wore white uniforms in that game, and you could say that things turned out pretty well for them after overcoming a 28-3 deficit — the largest in Super Bowl history.
Jeffery tries to pull in this Foles pass, but can’t do it. He bobbles the ball into the air, and Harmon’s in the right place at the right time to make the play.
This was really Foles’ only mistake of the day. It was a wild play, but it was really just kind of par for the course for this roller coaster of an upset win by the Eagles.
Browner claims that the decision was more of a political move on Belichick’s part rather than one made to help the team.
Here’s what Browner said during his rant:
Man, Bill wasn’t right at all tonight, man. I ain’t know how to feel watching that shit without my man, without my homie, without Malcolm. I didn’t know whether to cheer for they ass. Feel me … That dude has started every game for that team. Feel me. Since he picked the fucking ball off and he was taking on their number one dude at that.
The catch appeared that it might help the Falcons maintain that 28-3 lead against the Patriots you might have heard a thing or two about. At that point, the Falcons were up 28-20, and the 27-yard reception put them at the New England 22-yard line.
Then a 1-yard loss by Devonta Freeman, a Matt Ryan sack, and a holding call on Jake Matthews pushed the Falcons back and forced them to punt. The rest is history.
The NBA and fantasy returned from the All-Star break with plenty of intriguing box scores. Here are the big takeaways from Thursday and a look ahead to Friday’s action.
King James has flirted with triple-doubles in five straight games (and even almost pulled it off in the All-Star game, too), and he shouldn’t have any problems against Memphis’ 20th ranked defense. Last time he faced the Grizzlies things worked out just fine, as he finished with 34 points and 12 assists. Expect another monster performance from one of the game’s best.
