The Philadelphia Eagles finally did it. For the first time in franchise history, they captured the Vince Lombardi Trophy, beating the New England Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl LII.

The vaunted Eagles where mostly undressed by Tom Brady for 505 yards and three touchdowns. But it only took one play - a strip sack of Brady by defensive end Brandon Graham during the Pats' potential game-winning drive. 

Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles played a nearly perfect game, throwing for 373 yards with three touchdowns and one shocking catch for another score.

We've played this game since we were little kids, we dreamed about this moment, There's plenty of kids watching this game right now dreaming about this moment and someday will be here.

The Patriots' 613 yards were the most ever in a Super Bowl and the most for a losing team in the playoffs. The teams totaled 1,151 total yards, another Super Bowl record.

Probably the most curious of all events in a Super Bowl chock full of incredible moments is a peculiar non-event that sure to haunt coach Bill Belichick for some time to come.

Cornerback Malcolm Butler, who had played in both the Patriots playoff games and in nearly 98 percent of defensive snaps, was relegated to special teams play.

Being called a "coach's decision" related strictly to on-field play, Butler did not play a single defensive snap.
