A vast population of the country woke up monday morning ecstatic about the results of Super Bowl LII, especially the City of Brotherly Love. This morning the Philadelphia Eagles woke up (or never went to sleep) as World Champions as they defied the odds by beating the heavily-favored New England Patriots.

Sundayís game, the LII Super Bowl probably went down as one of the most entertaining. The Philadelphia Eagles relied on backup quarterback, Nick Foles to deliver the City to the promised land, and deliver is exactly what he did. Late in the 2017-18 season, Eaglesí quarterback Carson Wentz went down with an ACL injury to his left knee, and fans around the league thought that the Eaglesí season was over. The previous season the Oakland Raiders suffered a similar loss when quarterback Derrick Carr broke his leg ending the Raiders chances of any post season push; however, Oakland didnít have a Nick Foles to back them up.

Nick Foles begin his career in 2012 with Eagles backing up then starting quarterback Michael Vick. Since 2015 the Super Bowl LII MVP would play for two other teams before returning to Philadelphia. For the past two weeks critics around the league provided their insight about why the Philadelphia Eaglesí chances of winning were non existent because of who they would face. Thereís no question that Tom Brady and Bill Belichick will go down as two of the greatest in NFL history but you can never count out an underdog. Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles did what most thought was impossible, except Nick Foles of course. The Eagles beat the Patriots 41 - 33.

In other sports the Denver Nuggets have been a force in recent weeks beating the Oklahoma Thunder, the Golden State Warriors and the Dallas Mavericks kicking off the month of February 2 - 0. The Nuggets will head to Houston this week to face the Rockets this Friday and on to Phoenix to face the Suns on Saturday night. The Nuggets then return next week to host the San Antonio Spurs Tuesday night at Pepsi Center at 8:30 p.m.

The Denver Nuggets are 6 and 4 over the past 10 games and are hoping to continue their winning push toward the post-season. The Nuggets are currently ranked 4th in the Northwest Division, 4.5 games behind the division-leading Timberwolves with a overall record of 28 - 25.

Former Denver Bronco wide receiver Ed McCaffrey was named head coach of Christian Valorís High School football team on Monday. McCaffrey, who has coached high school football before when he was assistant coach at Jesuit Regis High School seemed excited to step into his new role at Christian Valor. McCaffreyís sons have all played for Christian Valor and his youngest son who has a year left of high school is expected to serve as the teamís quarterback for the 2018-19 season.
