On Dec. 10, 2017, many thought the Philadelphia Eagles’ Super Bowl hopes went down the drain. Carson Wentz suffered a knee injury against the Los Angeles Rams, one which ended up being a torn ACL. In his place, the Eagles put in Nick Foles, who was considered a capable backup but not the kind of guy who could lead the team to the promised land.
Everyone ended up being wrong, as Foles masterfully led the Eagles to the first Super Bowl in franchise history. The signal caller’s efforts in the biggest game in Eagles history were so outstanding that he took home the game’s Most Valuable Player award.
