NBC's Super Bowl stream scores big with 2 million viewers

Graham strip sack

Upset University of MA students let loose their rage Sunday after the New England Patriots lost to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII. There are a lot of things that go into that.

There used to be a common attitude around the league that when your quarterback goes down, your chance of winning dies.

A magnificent performance from the Eagles' backup quarterback Nick Foles - who threw three touchdowns and almost 400 yards - had helped Philadelphia into a 38-33 lead with just over two minutes left in a high-scoring game at Minneapolis's US Bank Stadium.

The only problem with the spectacular plays was that the Patriots offense could only convert one of them into a touchdown. And while that's solid efficiency, solid didn't cut it in this Super Bowl.

"Oh, man, that's hard to know where to start", he said. Backup quarterbacks matter and the Falcons ought to pay attention.

A play, they got.

Brady said after the game that he had caught the ball when the Patriots tried it in practice, but just could not finish it during the game.

Trump reignited the controversy by releasing a statement Sunday before Super Bowl 52, telling players to "proudly stand for the anthem" and indirectly referenced the issue during his State of the Union speech on January 23.

There were other reasons Philadelphia won, of course: missed Patriots tackles, miscommunication between Brady and his receivers and a Brady fumble near the end of the game. Everyone from average Joes to professional bettors will lock in wagers on who wins the big game. Atlanta has a great kicker in Matt Bryant, but they had their share of mistakes in the kickoff and coverage units in 2017. After all, Wentz finished third in NFL MVP voting despite missing the final three regular-season games. "Then at halftime, everybody's thinking back to what New England did previous year against Atlanta". "Go forth and celebrate, but do so in a way that will make Philadelphia shine". I hope this is an example of what we can do. What was the biggest problem that stood out to you?

"You can't argue against that kind of success!"

The 103 million number for the Patriots-Eagles, also makes it a very real possibility that viewership for next year's Super Bowl could dip below 100 million for the first time in almost a decade.

Then Foles made them forget Wentz - and least for now - with the gutsiest drive of his life, including a fourth-down conversion to Ertz at midfield. The NFL launched a promotional campaign called "Let's Listen Together" last month that will publicize social justice initiatives undertaken by NFL players. They never won before.
