Eagles beat Patriots with their own play

‘Tom Brady is human after all!’

IT was the first sack of the game, and it's one Tom Brady will be thinking about for the rest of his career.

The New England Patriots were in position to steal the Super Bowl, and many expected the NFL MVP to come up with yet another stunning series of plays. With just over two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, the Patriots had the ball at their own 25-yard line, but it didn't go as planned.

Brady was sacked by Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham, with the fumble recovered by Derek Barnett.

The strip-sack was the first sack of the thrilling game, and effectively sealed the game for the Eagles, who walked away with the 41-33 victory.

Naturally, Brady was devastated.
