It’s happened. The Philadelphia Eagles will face the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII, in Minneapolis on February 4. The Eagles’ impressive run seemed to end in Week 14 against the Los Angeles Rams when Carson Wentz, potential MVP candidate, had his season ended by a torn ACL. Nonetheless, Nick Foles served as the hero the Eagles needed, and led to a thrilling victory against the Atlanta Falcons in the Divisonal Round, followed by a complete domination of the Minnesota Vikings in the Conference Championship game. The Eagles have never won the Super Bowl, putting fans on edge. But that fact that they made it this far is astounding. They did it without Carson Wentz, without Jason Peters, and without Jordan Hicks. They were the underdog in both payoff games, and pulled through both times. They’re the first Philly team to make it to a championship since the 2010 Flyers, and remain the only major team in the city without one. The opponent in the New England Patriots, who have a dynasty going led by quarterback Tom Brady. It’s a great matchup, it really is. It’s the dynastic team led by whom some claim to be GOAT against a surprise team no one saw coming, led by a miracle worker.
Fly, Eagles, Fly!
