The Philadelphia Eagles can finally call themselves Super Bowl champions. The Eagles defeated Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, 41-33, in a back-and-forth contest in which the record for most total yards was shattered (1,151).

Quarterback Nick Foles, who started the season as a backup but took over as starter after Carson Wentz tore his ACL in Week 14, was named MVP after accounting for four — three passing, one receiving — of Philadelphia’s five total touchdowns. The victory was the Eagles’ first in three trips to the Super Bowl and the first major professional sports title for the city since the 2008 World Series.

But that’s just part of what the Super Bowl offers each year. Below you’ll find the best of The Post’s coverage from Super Bowl LII, from a review of the best and worst commercials, Justin Timberlake’s halftime show and much more.
