In the second-highest scoring Super Bowl ever, the Philadelphia Eagles upset the New England Patriots 41-33 to win their first NFL championship since 1960 (before the Super Bowl era).
Backup quarterback Nick Foles, who replaced an injured Carson Wentz in week 14, was named the game's MVP, throwing for 373 yards and 3 touchdowns. New England's Tom Brady did all he could in the losing effort, throwing for a Super Bowl record 505 yards and 3 touchdowns of his own. However, a late fumble did the Patriots in.
