. . . Super Bowl LII: February 4th, 2018. 1. player. 54

Did you really think anything else was going to find its way into the top slot? Forget the past decade for a second. Think about the almost 90-year history of this team. Winning Super Bowl LII is the biggest win in the history of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Sure, they won back-to-back championships in 1948 and 1949. Sure, the Eagles won another NFL Championship in 1960, and with that win, they’ll always be remembered as the only team to defeat Vince Lombardi and his Green Bay Packers, but the Super Bowl is different. It’s the biggest game in our great country, and winning one has changed the Eagles’ place in history forever.

This was a game that had a ton of unforgettable moments. There was the moment where Nick Foles found Alshon Jeffery for a touchdown grab and the pirouette that he had to do in the back of the end zone to come down with the ball.

There was LeGarrette Blount’s 21-yard touchdown jaunt in the second quarter. There was the ‘Philly Special’ and Corey Clement’s catch and run that set up the ‘Philly Special’ in the first place, and if Clement hadn’t added enough to the cause, he’d add a catch and toe-tap in the back of the end zone later on just to ensure that he’d be a part of Eagles lore forever.

There are so many moments in this one that will remain in our minds forever. There was Zach Ertz’s dive into the end zone, Brandon Graham’s strip-sack (and the subsequent Derek Barnett recovery), and that final Hail-Mary attempt by Tom Brady that wound up falling incomplete.

Sure, the Philadelphia Eagles would have still loved this victory had it come against the Jacksonville Jaguars but seeing the Eagles beat the greatest coach, the greatest quarterback, and the greatest dynasty in NFL history adds a bit of a spin to the tale. Beating the patriots makes this one even more significant. This one, without question, takes the cake. Super Bowl LII is the biggest win of 2010 to 2019’s decade and the biggest win in the history of this great franchise, and nothing else is even close.
