Relief at Last! Philadelphia Eagles Fans Finally Celebrate Super Bowl Victory

Tom Brady threw one last desperation pass on the final play of the game, and the city of Philadelphia held its collective breath.

If Rob Gronkowski had come down with the ball in the end zone, the Patriots would have been a two-point conversion away from sending Super Bowl LII into overtime.

There would be no New England miracle this time. The Eagles defense converged on Gronkowski and knocked the ball to the ground, and Philadelphia had a 41-33 victory in Super Bowl LII and the franchise's first triumph in the NFL's biggest game.

That set off the reaction among the team's loyal fans in Philadelphia. They marched in celebration as the Eagles won their first NFL title since 1960, when they beat the Green Bay Packers 17-13 and handed Vince Lombardi the only postseason defeat of his career.

The long wait is over. The Eagles finally have their Super Bowl title, and their fans finally got a chance to show their joy.
