Philadelphia Eagles win first Super Bowl

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Philadelphia Eagles win first Super Bowl, holding off favored Patriots 41-33 in a game that shattered Super Bowl records

9:05 p.m. - Nick Foles threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Zach Ertz, and the Philadelphia Eagles took a 38-33 lead over the defending champion New England Patriots late in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl.

Ertz beat Devin McCourty on a quick-in route and held the ball in front of him as he drove for the goal line. The ball went over the goal line and popped out of Ertz's hands as he hit the ground.

The ruling was upheld on review, with referee Gene Steratore saying Ertz possessed the ball as a runner before the ball went across the goal line.

It was the 13th scoring possession out of 18 in the game, and the teams had more than 1,100 yards total offense after the score. The previous Super Bowl record was 929 combined yards.
