"I don't think many people would argue when I say this week has been one of the greatest weeks in Philadelphia history", said Mayor Jim Kenney, adding that the event mostly "went off without a hitch".
While both teams were the top seeds in their respective conferences going into the big game, with both teams going 13-3 on the season, very few gave the Eagles a legitimate shot to win.
Until Sunday's 41-33 victory over the favored New England Patriots, the Eagles remained the only team in their division without a Super Bowl title - an ongoing humiliation that gave Philly an inferiority complex and made Eagles fans an easy target for fans of other teams, especially the rival Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants. They had a week off, and they said, you know what, that week off might have been the thing that saved their season as far as a Super Bowl run because they did figure some things out with the play action stuff.
My first real memory of the Eagles was the 1988 season.
Mile Jedinak praised for 'immense' performance for Aston Villa
Steve Bruce's side must surely now be favourites to remain in the top two and clinch promotion back to the Premier League. The thought that John Terry could play for Aston Villa against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge is on.
In what can only be described as a gutsy performance from Foles and the entire team, the Eagles did the seemingly impossible. It can be easy to pick any of those unforgettable plays, but for me, I was waiting for this team, like all the other who preceded them, to disappoint me. When the Patriots immediately responded with a field goal of their own, Foles and the Eagles took over possession and drove back down the gridiron for the game's first touchdown, on a 34-yard pass from Foles to wide receiver Alshon Jeffery.
However, there is another 4th down call that Pederson made that nobody seems to remember but they should as this play ultimately decided the outcome in the Eagles favor.
Among the many claims in the article, Brady's business partner and fitness guru Alex Guerrero had reportedly become a center of controversy in the Patriots locker room.

But Brady did "stop in his tracks" to congratulate Eagles rookie defensive end Derek Barnett after the game.
Even with a long-standing link to Philadelphia's football franchise, all the two wanted from the celebration, Charlton said, was "happiness and fun".
"There are many emotions when you come up short of your goal", Brady said in his post.
There was some speculation that a possible quarterback battle could be brewing between Foles and Carson Wentz. "We're Super Bowl champs!" Jimmy Garoppolo's a much better player than Nick Foles, but Nick Foles just won a Super Bowl. "My birthday is on the 12th, his (nickname is) the 12th - and ever since then, I've been, like, in love with the Eagles".
