The greatest, most accomplished quarterback in NFL history put forth another Super Bowl performance for the ages, but this time it wasn’t enough.

In the largest explosion of offence in Super Bowl history, the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night outfought Brady’s New England Patriots, deservedly capturing the Philly franchise’s first Super Bowl championship, 41-33.

Both teams combined for an NFL championship-game record of 1,151 total yards.

This long-elusive Philadelphia victory thrilled most of the decidedly pro-Eagles crowd at the Midwest’s monument to girders and glass, 19-month-old U.S. Bank Stadium.

The Eagles hadn’t won an NFL championship since before the Super Bowl era began — in 1960, with a defeat of legendary Vince Lombardi’s Green Bay Packers.
