With the loss of their critically important starting quarter back Carson Wentz, many Eagles fans questioned what would happen next. In week 14 of the regular NFL season Carson Wentz tore his ACL and his LCL which would keep him on the bench for the rest of the season. Many fans believed that with Wentz hurt the season would be quickly over, but the Eagles refused to give up.

Their back-up quarter back Nick Foles was no deer in the headlights and proved he was prepared for the task by leading the Eagles through the playoffs and to the Super Bowl, ultimately defeating the New England Patriots 41-33 and winning the Eagles’ first ever Super Bowl. Foles would also go down in the record books as the first quarter back to receive a touch down pass during a Super Bowl game and the eighth back up quarter back to bring his team to the Super Bowl and win it.

Super Bowl Fifty-two was the Eagles chance for revenge after their loss against the Patriots in Super Bowl Thirty-nine. The Eagles held true to defeating the New England Patriots, with over 103.4 million people watching. Throughout the game both the Eagles and Patriots were neck and neck, but in the end the Eagles flew triumphant with Nick Foles holding the reigns and leading the team to a 41-33 point win and being named Super Bowl MVP. The Eagles’ first franchise Super Bowl win will be talked about and remembered for years, and to some will be known as the clash of “David and Goliath.”
