When you’re playing the New England Patriots, you can’t leave any points on the table. You must be on your game if you want to dethrone the dynasty.

So after the Eagles had a great opening drive stopped by the Patriots, the defense stepped up and did the same. And then Nick Foles unleashed a rocket to Alshon Jeffery for the first big play of Super Bowl LII, a 34-yard TD where he reached high to make the grab.

It was certainly a big play, and one that would put the Patriots on their heels a bit. And then Jake Elliott missed the extra point to keep it a 9-3 game and that point could make for future drama.
