Eagles Beat Pats In Super Bowl 52 Behind Monster Offensive Performance

(Minneapolis, MN) – The Philadelphia Eagles’ flight from last to first ended up with a Lombardi Trophy.In a record-setting shootout between Nick Foles and Tom Brady, the backup quarterback led a pressure-packed 75-yard drive to the winning touchdown, 11 yards to Zach Etrz with 2:21 to go. The game’s MVP says he kept his focus on that go-ahead touchdown drive in the fourth quarter.
“I didn’t switch my mindset. I wasn’t worried about the scoreboard. I wasn’t worried about the time. I was just playing ball. I think sometimes you start worrying about that so much it starts creeping in your brain. I was just playing. Whatever play Doug called, I was going to to rip it.”
Then a defense that had been shredded throughout the second half made two final stands to win 41-33.Brandon Graham strip-sacked Brady and Derek Barnett recovered,setting up rookie Jake Elliot’s 46-yard field goal for an 8-point lead.

Then Brady got his team to midfield before his desperation pass fell to the ground in the end zone.It was the first Super Bowl title for Philadelphia, which went from 7-9 last season to its first NFL crown since 1960.
Foles orchestrated it with the kind of drive NFL MVP Brady, a five-time champion, is known for. It covered 75 yards on 14 plays,and had to survive a video replay because Ertz had the ball pop into the air as he crossed the goal line.
Foles finished throwing for 373 yards, three touchdowns and one interception to earn MVP honors.  The Eagles averaged 6.1 yards per rush on their way to 164 yards on the ground.  Brady broke his own Super Bowl record throwing for 505 yards.  He also tossed three TDs.

Fletcher Cox Being Sued For Allegedly Seducing Man’s Wife

(SL) – Philadelphia Eagles defensive lineman Fletcher Cox is being sued for allegedly encroaching on another man’s marriage.
According to the Charlotte Observer, Cox has been accused of seducing a North Carolina man’s wife and ruining their marriage, leading to substantial emotional distress. In the state of North Carolina, a person can sue for “alienation of affection” in civil court.
North Carolina is one of 7 states that allow this type of suit. The plaintiff, Joshua Jeffords, says that his formerly-happy marriage began to fall apart once he learned that the 26-year-old Cox was communicating with his wife via text messages and Snapchat.
Jeffords claims that Cox and his wife (Catherine Cuesta) had sexually-charged conversations — including at least two text messages from Cox allegedly saying he wanted to get the woman pregnant.
Jeffords also claims that the 6-foot-4, 310-pound defensive tackle sent at least one photo of his penis to the married woman.Jeffords’ wife sent messages to Cox calling him “boo” and saying she was “loving everything you have to say” and “I really like you …,” “We’d make some damn beautiful babies” and “I want to get to know you babe.
I know we are compatible sexually …” according to the lawsuit….He says Cox met and seduced his wife when she was on a work trip to Pennsylvania in April. After confronting his wife about the affair, Jeffords says in the lawsuit that his wife visited Pennsylvania multiple times and moved there on Oct. 28 after putting her belongings in a storage unit.
Jeffords reportedly checked himself into a mental health facility to be treated for “substantial emotional distress” after discovering the extramarital activity involving Cox.
He’s seeking at least $50,000 in damages. Cox has yet to respond to the lawsuit.
