The Philadelphia Eagles and former quarterback Donovan McNabb congratulated their former coach, Andy Reid, on the championship win.
"So happy for my guy," McNabb tweeted. "Now give him the credit he deserves. First Class coach, friend and dad."

"Time's yours, Andy," the Eagles tweeted.
It’s the first Super Bowl crown for Reid, who’ll no longer wear the distinction of being the winningest coach in NFL history without a championship.
The Chiefs had a comeback flair throughout the playoffs, getting down 24-0 to Houston in the divisional round and then rallying from deficits of 10-0 and 17-7 to beat Tennessee in the AFC championship game.
They did it one more time, on football’s biggest stage, and are Super Bowl champions for the second time. The Chiefs lost the first Super Bowl, then won Super Bowl 4 - some 50 years ago.
