Rookie Corey Clement Plays Major Role In Super Bowl LII

Posted Feb 4, 2018


MINNEAPOLIS -
Corey Clement is used to scoring in Minnesota. Just not on the game's biggest stage.

The former Big Ten running back out of Wisconsin from Glassboro, New Jersey might have gone undrafted, but the rookie free agent proved to be a key cog for the Eagles' offense in the 41-33 win over the Patriots to bring home the franchise's first Lombardi Trophy.

Clement was on the field for the fourth-and-goal gadget play that gave the Eagles a 10-point lead in the second quarter. As quarterback Nick Foles went to "talk" to the right side of the offensive line, Clement took the direct snap out of the shotgun. He pitched the ball to tight end and former college quarterback Trey Burton who threw to a wide open Foles for the touchdown.

In the second half, Clement was on the receiving end from the starting quarterback. Foles threaded a perfect ball through traffic to the back of the end zone for Clement who secured the ball and got both feet in bounds for the 22-yard score.

Clement also had the longest pass play of the entire game, a 55-yard catch-and-run, to finish with 100 yards on four receptions.

Ironic since one of the knocks on Clement's game coming out of college was his pass-catching ability.
