Eagles of Philadelphia Philadelphia, Philadelphia! The third anniversary of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles' Super Bowl victory—6 ABC Philadelphia. The game was played in Minneapolis because of the polar vortex that had gripped much of the country.
Foles threw for 217 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score as the Eagles beat Minnesota 31-33 in overtime.
The victory gave Foles his first Super Bowl win at the age of 26 years and 110 days. He became the second-youngest player (behind Dan Marino) to win the trophy.

There are a number of reasons why the Eagles won Sunday's matchup. They were able to contain Vikings running back Adrian Peterson who had 24 carries for 102 yards. The Eagles limited Peterson to under 100 yards for the fourth consecutive season.
