Eagles fan brings wife's ashes to first ever Eagles Super Bowl parade

Eagles fan brings wife's ashes to first ever Eagles Super Bowl parade

It was Nick Foles _ the Eagles backup quarterback who took over for the injured Carson Wentz during the regular season _ who was named Super Bowl MVP after the top two teams in each conference met Sunday night. The fans have waited decades for a Super Bowl parade. The high octane offensive game came down to which team's defense could make a stop and Philadelphia's answered the call when Brandon Graham rushed from the inside position and strip sacked an unaware Tom Brady. The teams also combined for 1,151 yards on Super Sunday, setting a new record for any National Football League game ever.

Brady sat down for an interview on Friday morning, which means we could see Chapter 6 in the next week or two.

Teammate Beau Allen mentioned what he said to Kelce at breakfast following the parade, "As soon as I saw you approach the mic I took out my phone because I knew something good was coming". And the number one feeling I have had the past four days is gratitude. Philadelphia will finally get to celebrate with their team, something they have been waiting to do for 57 years, since the team's establishment.

Head coach Doug Pederson of the Philadelphia Eagles talks with general manager Howie Roseman before a game against the Dallas Cowboys at Lincoln Financial Field on January 1, 2017 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The "out of home" metric for Super Bowl was calculated based exclusively on viewership of the NBC broadcast (6:31-10:25 p.m. ET), and accounts for a 12 percent lift for the NBC delivery to an average of 115.6 million viewers (from the 103.4 million viewers reported on Monday).

The Broncos got their first run at their Super Bowl competition in Week 9, when the Eagles beat them 51-23 in a game that really wasn't as close as even that score indicated. They'll probably start by signing some of their key components to this year's team, like Linebacker Nigel Bradham.

The underdogs were the hungry dogs that went in search of a meal alright, but unless they're that hungry again next year their chances drop dramatically for a repeat once the season starts. But for now they are champions. True or not, the Eagles were not about to show any prying eyes what they had in store for the big game this year. The only difference between then and now is that now they've come away with the Lombardi trophy.
