On January 21, the Philadelphia Eagles crushed Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship Game. They will advance to Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis and face the New England Patriots. Maybe it is the time for Eagles to forget Carson Wentz. After all, Nick Foles may be enough to win their first Super Bowl!
When the Eagles lost their star quarterback Wentz, many critics believed that the team wouldn’t even make it. But Foles was on fire that Sunday night against the burning scoring defense. His best work might’ve come against Vikings and their hyped defense that was torn apart in all possible ways. In a shocking outcome, Philly destroyed the No. 2 Minnesota Vikings in a stunning 38-7.
The Vikings could’ve become the first team to host its own Super Bowl. However, Minnesota wavered on the big stage and will have to watch another team on February 4 and fight for the Lombardi Trophy.
Much of Philly’s success was due to their star players, including Zach Ertz, their pro bowl tight end. But it was his was Ertz’s wife Julie who stole a bit of the show due to her reaction after finding out that her husband’s team is Super Bowl-Bound!
“I was kind of looking around for someone to give me confirmation and answers, and I feel like I needed it from at least like three people to make it feel real,” Julia said. “Yeah, I just got super-emotional.”
Playing at the same time in big games turned out as great as they could have possibly imagined. Julia, the reigning U.S. Soccer female player of the year, scored the winning goal that rolled to victory. According to her, she simply received a text message that the Eagles are going to Super Bowl.
“He FaceTimed me right when I got in there,” Julia said of the locker room. “So, of course, I was again really emotional but super excited.”
The team recorded her emotional reaction on the field. They posted it on Twitter where it quickly went viral! Watch the video below to see her overwhelmed reaction.
