The Philadelphia Eagles Just Won Their First Super Bowl

Malcolm Jenkins explains why Super Bowl win with Eagles is sweeter than with the Saints

Eagles players Chris Long and Torrey Smith made clear their intentions not to attend even before their 41-33 win over the New England Patriots, and teammate Malcolm Jenkins joined them after the game.

Now he's a folk hero for a franchise that had gone 0-for-2 in Super Bowls and for a legion of fans who were rooting for anybody other than Brady and the Patriots, who were seeking their third title in four years.

The fumble set up a field goal that gave the Eagles an eight-point lead and then the game ended when Brady's desperation heave for Gronkowski in the end zone fell to the turf, sending green and white confetti to the field, emotional Eagles pouring out on the field and Brady on the ground in frustration. It was the Patriots' first turnover of the game.

Brady got the ball back after the Eagles turned the turnover into a field goal to give them the winning margin with just over a minute remaining. It's the game when a backup quarterback Nick Foles and a former backup quarterback, now coach Doug Pederson took down Bill Belichick and Tom Brady.

Barnett landed on it in what will go down as one of the most memorable plays in Philadelphia history. However, he broke a Super Bowl record in passing.

The Philadelphia Eagles Just Won Their First Super Bowl

No quarterback has gone from backup to title game MVP in one season since Brady replaced Drew Bledsoe in the 2001 season. His one interception came off his own receiver's drop. Foles was clutch for the Eagles on third down, racking up nearly half of his yardage on third down.

It wasn't until well into the fourth quarter, however, that the Patriots managed to pull ahead of the Eagles for the first time with a single point, leaving the score at 33-32 with less than nine minutes left in the game.

Both offenses got cooking from the opening kickoff. Foles got hot early with a series of short passes on the Eagles' first drive, but they bogged down in the red zone following an Ertz false start and settled for a field goal.

Foles orchestrated it with the kind of drive NFL MVP Brady, a five-time champion, is known for.

Running backs Jay Ajayi and LeGarrette Blount combined for 23 carries and 147 yards rushing, and Blount had a second-quarter TD run as well. It was the longest TD pass allowed by the Patriots since the Week 1 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Eagles kicker Jake Elliott missed the extra-point try, his fifth such miss of the season, to make it a 9-3 Eagles lead. It's not often you give up that many yards to the Patriots-let alone failing to force a punt-and win, but the Eagles just did it. It was hard to tell New England led the National Football League in scoring defense (14 points per game) after Week 4. We have those conversations in the locker room, just like everyone else does in the workplace. Then Amendola appeared to hit Brady on a wide-open trick-play pass, but Brady - who was not wearing a glove on his previously injured right hand - just flat out dropped it. Brady's 4th-and-5 pass was incomplete to Gronkowski down the right sideline.
