Eagles players react to 1st ever Super Bowl win

- They did it. The Philadelphia Eagles are the Super Bowl LII champs.

They led for most of the game Sunday night. They were up 10 at halftime.

Of course, quarterback Tom Brady and the Patriots would make at least one comeback. In the fourth quarter, Brady hit Rob Gronkowski to give New England a one-point lead.

But quarterback Nick Foles would drive Philly back down the field, getting a touchdown pass to tight end Zach Ertz. There was a little controversy over that catch, but it stood.

Philly then got Brady to fumble and added a field goal, for good measure.

Brady still had one more chance. Down eight, he tossed it to the end zone, but no dice. The Eagles won 41-33 for their first Super Bowl title ever.

The players achieved their dream when so many counted them out, and they were just over the moon after the game. Below is a collection of some of their reactions on social media.
