How the Eagles defense seized its chance to stop Tom Brady and win the Super Bowl

Nick Foles and the offense had a good game of their own, enough to keep things close. The defense wanted the chance to win it, and Foles’ 11-yard touchdown to Ertz gave the defense one more chance to make a big play.

The Patriots had plenty of time for another comeback, but they had to open things up. On second-and-2 at their own 33-yard line, five receivers went into their notes. Nobody chipped, and there were only five blockers in front of Brady.

Safety was taken care of last year for the long haul with the early Jason Pominville Authentic Jersey drafting of Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye. Corner is a whole different mess.

The plan here starts with re-signing free agent Morris Claiborne, who’s still only 28 and coming off a solid first season in New York after his many years in Dallas. The trick is also upgrading on the opposite site.

Yes, the Jets have a first-round consideration here, too, in Alabama’s Minkah Fitzpatrick. There are some parallels with him being the next Darrelle Revis. He would give them a strong all-around corner and budding leader, and he would add to an impressive young back end with Adams and Maye.

This is the toughest question to answer. Finding a starting quarterback isn’t cheap and it’s unlikely that any team is going to be interested in trading for him unless it believes he’ll start in 2018.

Foles is set to count just $7.6 million against the salary cap for the Eagles in 2018 with $3 million coming in a roster bonus. It’s a trade-friendly contract that teams can acquire with little long-term risk and will leave them protected if he turns back into a pumpkin.

So the Eagles can likely expect a second- or third-round draft pick in return for Foles.

For now, it’s celebration time. But Foles’ unlikely path to Super Bowl MVP creates a nice situation for Philadelphia’s future too.
