Eagles fan performs most beautiful version of 'Hallelujah' in tribute to Wentz

There have been some tremendous covers of Leonard Cohen's masterpiece, "Hallelujah," over the years.

Jeff Buckley's immediately comes to mind. The kids these days are into Pentatonix. Kate McKinnon as Hillary Clinton to cold open SNL was a work of art.

But one Philadelphia Eagles fan may have recorded the most beautiful, heart-wrenching version yet. It's a tribute to recently fallen hero of Philadelphia, Carson Wentz.

You may be suspect before you click and watch, but wait 'til you hear the lyrics. This refrain will absolutely sell you:

He goes through his reads, the 4th, the 5th

Does a spin, makes the lineman miss

He throws to Ertz, a touchdown - hallelujah!

Brings a tear to the eye. Miss you, Carson.

'The Last QB:' A Nick Foles-Star Wars hype video exists

'The Last QB:' A Nick Foles-Star Wars hype video exists

Star Wars: The Last Jedi debuts this week.

Nick Foles also happens to make his season debut as the Philadelphia Eagles' starting quarterback this week.

Large quantities of people love Stars Wars. Probably slightly less people love the Eagles. So, naturally, there should be some sort of mashup.

The Internet delivered today with a Star Wars: the Last QB hype video featuring none other than Nicky Foles as the Last Hope. Basically, it's a Nick Foles hype video set to some Star Wars clips and soundbites. Why not? Maybe come February they can edit it again to include Bill Belichick and Tom Brady as the Dark Side when the Eagles are set to take on the Patriots in the Super Bowl.

Watch: Malcolm Jenkins gives impassioned speech after losing Wentz

Sunday was a strange day for the Philadelphia Eagles.

They clinched the NFC East crown and are setting themselves up nicely for a bye week come playoff time. But they also lost their star quarterback for the season.

So how did the team react following the game? Well, thanks to the Eagles' Twitter account, we can now watch the words shared by Doug Pederson and Malcolm Jenkins in the locker room.

Pederson is his usual self with a "there's still work to be done" type of message.

"We're playing for something bigger now, boys," Pederson said. "I'm so proud of you guys."

Malcolm's segment is full of words that were not included because of their sensitive nature, so it's tough to make out everything he said. But he had some fantastic lines and even touched on Wentz's injury.

"We set this up for whoever is in this room, that's who we ride with," Jenkins said. "We all we got, we all we need.

"At the end of the day, we got bigger goals. We get back to work, man. You know what's in our minds, bro. Championship and that's it, man. Nothing short of that."
