The 52nd Super Bowl was a tense game, and it didn't help that the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots fans are some of the most passionate and loyal fans in the league. During the game, Twitter was ablaze with commentary, accompanied incredibly accurate (and hilarious) images. Here are some of the best GIFs that sum up the Super Bowl.
Sunday night's game was especially nerve-wracking for fans because the Eagles were the underdogs in the game. The Patriots had won five Super Bowl championships, and the Eagles had yet to win one.
Eagles and Patriots fans are known for being eccentric (some might say obnoxious), so much so, that Saturday Night Live parodied their diehard fans in a sketch the night before the big game. Some fans in Philly have even gone so far as to scale greased telephone poles after games, while others got in fist fights with police horses. And Pats fans are known for their over-the-top gloating, after winning so many titles in the past.
Naturally, this combination of fans made for one interesting Twitter conversation. It looks like football fans were getting just as rowdy online as they were inside the stadium during the 2018 Super Bowl.
Nick Foles Had A Good Game
A lot of people think breakout star quarterback for the Eagles, Nick Foles, is having a really good game. His epic touchdown catch got a lot of reactions on Twitter.
