MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Philadelphia Eagles won an epic shootout over the Patriots to win the franchise's first Super Bowl.

Nick Foles was able to outscore Tom Brady, and the backup quarterback led a pressure-packed 75-yard drive to the winning touchdown to Zach Ertz with just over two minutes left.

Then a defense that had been shredded throughout the second half made two final stands to win 41-33.

It was the first Super Bowl title for Philadelphia (16-3), which went from 7-9 last season to the franchise's first NFL title since 1960.

"If there's a word (it's) called everything," Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said. "That's what it means to Eagles fans everywhere. And for Eagles fans everywhere, this is for them."
