The Eagles won their first and only Super Bowl on February 4, 2018, and a major reason was the beautifully-designed and perfectly-executed – not to mention gutsy – trick play that stunned the defending champion Patriots to close out the first half. With 38 seconds left in the second quarter, the Eagles were ahead 15-12 and had a fourth and goal from the Patriots’ 1. Rather than kick a field goal for a near-automatic three points, Philadelphia had something else in mind. A brief meeting between the Eagles’ coach, Doug Pederson, and their quarterback, Nick Foles, resulted in the play call: Philly Special. Foles stood in a shotgun formation, then crept up close to the right side of his offensive line – and the ball was snapped directly to running back Corey Clement. Clement ran to his left and pitched the ball to Trey Burton, an Eagles’ tight end, who ran to the center of the field and passed the ball to Foles, who was all alone at the right side of the end zone for a touchdown. The play extended the Eagles’ lead to 22-12 at halftime – and the Eagles ultimately won by 8.
