As the diehard Eagles’ fans n Philadelphia violently celebrated by setting the streets ablaze Sunday night, Tom Brady and the devastated Patriots cheerlessly flew back to Foxborough.  This isn’t a first for Brady and his long-time head coach Bill Belichick: the duo has lost three Super Bowls together. 

In this one, the Eagles were the obvious underdog. In the weeks leading up to the big game, fans across America were rooting for Philly while keeping in mind that the Pats most likely weren’t going to lose this one… but they did!  

The Eagles had control from the kickoff.  They established dominance on the offensive side with a solid first drive leading to a field goal. They carried this on through the first half and went into the break with a commanding 22-12 lead.  

Coming out of halftime, I can assure you no one forgot about what the Patriots did last Super Bowl, coming back from a 28-3 deficit against the Falcons.  The Pats took their first lead of the game to end the third quarter, scaring Philly fans with the thought that the Patriots were going to steal the Lombardi trophy once again. 

With three minutes to go in the fourth quarter, Eagle’s defensive end Brandon Graham stripped Tom Brady leading to a Patriots turnover to basically seal the game.  As time expired on a failed Hail Mary attempt by the Patriots, not only Philly, but the entire NFL community leapt with joy.  

The Eagles had won their first Super Bowl ever and Tom Brady missed out on yet another ring.  Eagles fans back home celebrated… accordingly? These fans rioted and crowded the streets of Philadelphia.  There were videos of cars being flipped and objects being burned all over social media.   

This is an interesting way to celebrate your home team winning the championship.  Is this what sports is coming to?  This tense environment created on Super bowl Sunday led to a unique reaction in Philadelphia that night.
