Super Bowl LII was one of the most action packed Super Bowls to date.

The Eagles scored a touchdown first by Alshon Jeffery set up by a 36 yard run by LeGarrette Blount, but missed the extra point, triggering an avalanche of failed extra points, field goals, and two point conversions. On the Patriot’s next drive, the Patriots attempted a wildcat throw to Tom Brady, which he dropped.

At the beginning of the second quarter, the Patriots went for a field goal, but missed. The Eagles scored a touchdown next off a 21 yard run by Jay Ajayi, but failed the two point conversion. Following the Patriot field goal that made the score 15-6, The Patriots intercepted a long pass and scored on that drive, missing the extra point. After that, the Eagles scored on the play of the game, a wildcat throw to Nick Foles in the end zone, mirroring Brady’s failed play earlier in the game.

The Patriots scored the first touchdown of the half off a pass to Robert Gronkowski. The Eagles responded five minutes later with a 22 yard touchdown pass to Clements. The Patriots scored again on the next drive, making the score 29-26, Eagles.

The fourth quarter started off with an Eagle field goal. After that, the Patriots scored a touchdown, giving them the lead at 33-32. The Eagles scored a touchdown shortly after with Zach Ertz diving into the end zone with two minutes left, but they failed the two point conversion, making the score 38-33. The Patriots now had two minutes to score a touchdown. However on the second play of the drive, Brandon Graham of the Eagles sacked Brady and forced a fumble, the first sack of the game and the Patriots first turnover. The Eagles scored a 46 yard field goal, the longest field goal by a rookie in the super bowl and the Patriots couldn’t come back, ending the game in a failed hail mary.

The game ended with several Super Bowl records, including most pass yards by a team, most total yards and of course, the Eagles first Super Bowl win.
