Elias Moura, Staff Writer

One of the most televised events in the United States, the Super Bowl returned on Sunday, February 4th as the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles squared off.

The game consisted with the Patriots trailing the Eagles for most of the game until they took a 33-32 lead late in the 4th quarter. The Eagles then quickly scored making the score 38-33.

Eagles fans at AHS watched nervously throughout the game hoping for a Philadelphia victory.  

Junior Abel Samson was starting to get nervous as the Eagles trailed.

“I started to get nervous since Brady and his team always come back from situations like this”.

The turning point of the game took place when Eagles tight-end Zach Ertz scored with about 2 minutes left in the game.

“I wasn’t sure if it was a touchdown 100%, but as an Eagles fan I wanted to take any points available.” Samson said.

The game then went on to an Eagles’ 41-33 victory over the Patriots. AHS students were left in awe after the amazing game played by both sides.

“This was probably the greatest super bowl of all time due to the eagles having a backup quarterback in Nick Foles lead them to victory and winning the MVP.”

Nick Foles started 6 games this season and threw for 373 yards and 3 touchdowns, with another being caught by him, leaving the Patriots’ defense stunned.

The game winning play came with 2 minutes left in the game with the ball in Tom Brady’s hands. Brandon Graham, a pro bowl pass rusher for the Eagles forced a fumble as Tom Brady was extending his arm to pass down the field.

“It was undeniably the biggest play of the game and I respect that man with all my heart. Shout out to the whole defensive line they were putting in work.” Samson said as he was expressing his emotions after the win.

The Eagles’ victory was one for history, as Philadelphia Fans at AHS and across the country continue to celebrate.
