Alshon Jeffery TD Gives Eagles First Quarter Lead

Posted Feb 4, 2018


MINNEAPOLIS -
After the Patriots tied the game at 3-3 with a 26-yard Stephen Gostowski field goal, the Eagles needed just three plays to regain the lead.

Quarterback Nick Foles hit wide receiver Nelson Agholor in the slot for a 7-yard gain.

On the next play, LeGarrette Blount took advantage of a huge hole up the middle to gain 36 yards to get the ball to the New England 34-yard line.

To finish off the scoring drive, Foles dropped back and went deep to wide receiver Alshon Jeffery in the back, left corner of the end zone. Jeffery was draped in coverage by former Eagle Eric Rowe but Jeffery made the amazing catch. This is coming off Jeffery's two-touchodnw performance in the NFC Championship Game.

It was the longest offensive touchdown in the Super Bowl since the Ravens-49ers clash following the 2012 season.

Jake Elliott, however, missed the extra point wide right as the Eagles took a 9-3 lead.
