Eagles Quarterback Nick Foles Was Mic'd Up When They Ran The Trick Play In The Super Bowl (Video)
Posted by Steve on February 07 2018
One of the most memorable plays from Super Bowl LII was the pass from Philadelphia Eagles tight end Trey Burton TO quarterback Nick Foles. It was a trick play, now known simply as the "Philly Special" or "Philly Philly." It was a gutsy call run on fourth down, as the seconds ticked down in the first half. 

It turns out that Foles was mic'd up during the game and it's now apparent that the quarterback made the play call himself! Before the play, Foles ran to the sideline for a brief discussion with head coach Doug Pederson and said, "Philly Philly?" Pederson thought about it for a few seconds and then gave the OK to run it. And the rest, as they say, is history.

That's quite a turnaround for Foles, who bounced around for the last couple of seasons, was traded, cut by the Rams, then reunited with his former coach Andy Reed in Kansas city before signing with and returning to Philly as a free agent last offseason!

Check out the video with mic'd up audio from Foles from a couple different angles below!
