It’s an incredible time to be a fan of the Philadelphia Eagles. As celebrations flood the City of Brotherly Love following the team’s first ever Lombardi Trophy, social media has been ablaze with viral videos surrounding one of the NFL’s most poetic of wins. Here are the four videos you simply need in your life.
The Titanic theme makes everything better and @TitanicTD has done a brilliant job of turning sporting highlights into tear-jerkers all year long. One of the biggest defensive plays of the night took place with just over two minutes to go in the final quarter. Derek Barnett’s fumble recovery on Brandon Graham’s strip sack deserved the Titanic treatment and it did not disappoint.
The Philly Special:
Inside the NFL released an insightful video into the communication between Doug Pederson and Nick Foles prior to the ‘Philly Special’ play-call. Nick Foles walked up to his Head Coach, who told the quarterback that the team were going for it, and told Pederson a play. The Eagles Head Coach didn’t even hesitate, trusting in his quarterback and his players to execute on a play that was instinctively called by Foles. What happened next, has gone down as one of the most surreal moments in Super Bowl history.

A day made:
Eagles wideout and 2x Super Bowl champion Torrey Smith stopped by a local school today and met a die-hard Eagles fan. After finding out the young fan’s favorite player was Carson Wentz, Smith did something beautiful. Warning, this one will hit you right in the feels.
Merrill Reese calls it all:
The dulcet tones of Merrill Reese have become so symbolic with the Eagles, but seeing the masterful broadcaster at work during the Eagles first Super Bowl win? That’s something truly spectacular that all fans will appreciate.
