Following the Philadelphia Eagles’ 41-33 victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis, Minn. on Sunday night, Eagles Coach Doug Pederson said: “I can only give the praise to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for giving me this opportunity.”

Dan Patrick of NBC Sports asked Pederson: “How do you explain this that nine years ago, you’re coaching in high school and here you are with [the Lombardi] trophy?”

Pederson responded: “I can only give the praise to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for giving me this opportunity, and I’m going to tell you something: I got the best players in the world and it’s a resilient group, I love this coaching staff-Mr. Lurie, the owner. Not only do we have the best fans in the world, we now have the best team in the world. Thank you guys.”

This marked the first time that the Philadelphia Eagles had won the Super Bowl. The Eagles did win the NFL Championship in 1960, before the Super Bowl was inaugurated.
