Sunday/ the underdog is a champ

The front page of the Philadelphia Inquirer, on Monday morning,

Philadelphians are celebrating the the streets, after their Eagles defied expectations and best the New England Patriots 41-33 in Superbowl LVII.

Eagles quarterback Nick (‘Saint Nick’) Fowles started the season as back-up quarterback for his team. He replaced regular quarterback Carson Wentz in December when Wentz tore a knee ligament.

Fowles didn’t inspire a lot of confidence at first, but played brilliantly in the post-season playoffs, and ended up being voted Most Valuable Player.  Wow.

Here is a collage of some of the highlights of the game. That’s Patriots quarterback Tom Brady top left, and Eagles QB Nick Foles to his right. The Patriots briefly took the lead in the fourth quarter, but then tight end game had a nail-biting finish, but then Zach Ertz got a touchdown, and the Eagles stopped Tom Brady from drawing even and forcing the game into overtime.
