Sunday's Super Bowl LII matchup — even with the Vikings' elephant-in-the-room absence — at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis grew heroes and stacked up yardage as rapidly as frost formed on the stadium windows. Where the Eagles may have trailed in star power next to Tom Brady's résumé alone, they made up ground in readiness and execution and captured their first championship trophy. The keys? Start with been-there-done-that LeGarrette Blount, top photo, who played previously for New England and won two Super Bowls with the Pats. He rushed for 90 yards and scored the second Eagles TD, which made it 15-3. Teammate Nelson Agholor (13) played tough between the lines. Meanwhile, with Brady losing the shootout, Patriots deep weapon Brandin Cooks (14) went nowhere when he took being a vertical threat literally.
