Philadelphia Eagles top New England Patriots to win first Super Bowl

The Philadelphia Eagles edged past the New England Patriots, 41-33.

Foles was thrust into the starting role after MVP contender Carson Wentz was lost for the season when he suffered a torn ACL and LCL in a week 14 win over the Los Angeles Rams.

On Sunday, Foles was marksman, completing 28 of 43 passes for 373 yards and three touchdowns. He also became the first QB in Super Bowl history to also catch a touchdown pass, en route to becoming the game's MVP.

For his part, Brady threw three touchdowns and racked up 505 yards. But his late fumble was too much for even him to overcome.

Hours before they brought down the champion Patriots, Philadelphia policemen seemed to prognosticate the win. Officers were seen greasing traffic light poles in the City of Brotherly Love to prevent people celebrating the win by climbing them.

It took a bit of razzle-dazzle to cut the favorite Patriots down to size. Toward the end of the first half, the Eagles faced a fourth and goal at the 1-yard line and went for it.

Foles motioned out of the backfield and feigned that he was calling an audible, but then booked it to the end zone as his rookie, undrafted running back Corey Clement received the snap. Clement then handed the football off to the tight end Trey Burton who tossed it to Foles in the end zone, giving them a 22-12 lead at halftime.

The storied win for Philadelphia inspired rival New York to set its most recognizable landmark to go green.

New York City's Empire State Building went green moments after the victory was official.
