Eagles win first Super Bowl
The Philadelphia Eagles came back to defeat the New England Patriots, 41-33, in Minneapolis on Sunday to win their first Super Bowl in 57 seasons. The Patriots boasted the top-ranked defense in the NFL, but they couldn’t stop the Eagles’ journeyman quarterback, Nick Foles, who was named the game’s Most Valuable Player. Before the New England Patriots got the ball for the first time, “Gonna Fly Now,” the theme from the movie “Rocky,” blared over the speakers. And when the game ended Sunday, the Eagles, their fans and the city of Philadelphia were soaring.
