Style Magazine Newswire | 2/5/2018, 8:40 a.m.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback NICK FOLES was voted the winner of the Pete Rozelle Trophy, awarded to the Super Bowl LII Most Valuable Player.
Foles completed 28 of 43 pass attempts for 373 yards with three touchdowns and one interception for a 106.1 passer rating. He is the third quarterback to start and win the Super Bowl after starting three or fewer games in the regular season, joining DOUG WILLIAMS (Washington, Super Bowl XXII) and JEFF HOSTETLER (New York Giants, Super Bowl XXV).
Foles, who also had a one-yard touchdown reception from tight end TREY BURTON, is the first player in NFL history with a touchdown pass and a touchdown catch in a Super Bowl. He is the only quarterback in NFL history to have a 100+ passer rating in each of his first four career postseason starts (minimum 20 attempts per game).
Foles threw the game-winning 11-yard touchdown pass to tight end ZACH ERTZ with 2:21 remaining in the fourth quarter.
The award is chosen by a panel of 16 comprised of members of the Pro Football Writers Association of America, selected members of the electronic broadcast media and by fans interactively through the National Football League’s official website, NFL.com.
