On February 4th, 2018, the Philadelphia Eagles played off against the New England Patriots in the 52nd Super Bowl. Each team had a great game and even broke records. The score ended up being 41-33 with the Eagles on top. Eagles were led by head coach Doug Pederson and Patriots were led by Head coach Bill Belichick.
Many records were broken on both teams. The Patriots had a total of 613 yards. Both teams broke the record for combining for most yards in a Super Bowl and most first downs. It also had the fewest punts which was just one.
Even though the Patriots were favored to win the game, the Eagles came in with pride and took the game over. This was the Eagles first Super Bowl win, which especially in Philly is a BIG deal. This year no one could really predict who was going to be in the Super Bowl until late playoffs. So who knows maybe your team will make it next year.
