- The Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots, 41-33, after Zach Ertz scored a go-ahead touchdown with just over two minutes to play.
- Ertz's touchdown was controversial upon review, as he made a catch, dove for the end zone, and bobbled the ball.
- Referees had to determine if Ertz had established himself as a runner, or if he was a receiver, thus making the play not a catch.
- While the referees seemed to get the call right, the NFL may feel additional pressure to clarify the rule so that the league's biggest game doesn't come down to the rule book.
The Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl, 41-33, and they needed two controversial rulings on the NFL's catch rules to do it.
