On Sunday, February 4th, the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots went head to head in Super Bowl LII. In an intense 2018 Super Bowl face-off, the Eagles stayed ahead for the majority of the game until the beginning of the fourth quarter.
After the Patriots were up by 1 with a score of 33 to 32, the Eagles scored a touchdown with only minutes to spare. The Patriots had a chance to overcome, but quarterback Tom Brady was suddenly sacked turning the ball back over to Philadelphia.
The only sack of the game was the glorious moment that led the Eagles to their championship title.
Philadelphia—the underdogs—ultimately won the game with 41, while New England ended with 33. This truly was an unpredictable outcome.
Although the miraculous win was a headline moment in itself, this year's Super Bowl Champions also drew attention with their faith-filled statements.
After the game, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson, tight end Zach Ertz—who caught the winning touchdown, and MVP/quarterback Nick Foles all publicly gave the glory to God. Ertz and Foles both began their statements with "All glory to God," while the head coach thanked his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for the win.
Congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles!
