The Philadelphia Eagles will be returning to the NovaCare Complex, 2 Novacare Way, later today with the Vince Lombardi Trophy — the first in team history. The moment Eagles fans have been waiting 52 years (58 since they won the NFL Championship) for has finally arrived. In thrilling fashion, the Eagles defeated the New England Patriots, 41–33, in Super Bowl LII. The record-breaking night at U.S. Bank Stadium included the two teams combining for an NFL record 1,151 total yards of offense. Nick Foles, the Super Bowl MVP, and Tom Brady combined for a NFL postseason record 874 passing yards. Foles is the first player to catch a touchdown and throw for a touchdown in Super Bowl history. These are just a few of the highlights.
