The Philadelphia Eagles made history on Sunday, February 4th by outlasting Tom Brady and the New England Patriots by a score of 41-33.

Nick Foles would lead the Eagles with 373 passing yards, three passing touchdowns and even one receiving touchdown, which was the first by a quarterback in NFL history. Although on a team containing many underdogs, Foles could be the most polarizing of them all as he was originally the backup quarterback to start the season, until up-and-coming star Carson Wentz was injured late into the season.

Although Tom Brady gave his usual stellar performance, with 505 passing yards and 3 touchdowns, it would prove futile as Eagles’ defensive lineman Brandon Graham would cause a pivotal fumble late in the fourth quarter to secure the game for the Birds.
