Nick Foles Secretly Practiced Catching Balls During Super Bowl Warmups To Prepare For Trick Play

Nobody could have predicted Nick Foles catching a pass on a 4th down trick play to help win the Super Bowl right? Apparently if someone was watching the Eagles warmups closely, they may have had an inkling of knowledge that the “Philly Special” was on the horizon.

During warmups, quarterbacks avoid catching any passes to prevent jamming fingers. But before the biggest game in American sports, Eagles QB Nick Foles was running routes and catches passes, in the same exact spot he would catch a nearly identical pass that would prove to be one of the greatest plays in Super Bowl history.

Perhaps Brady should have been out there doing to same.
