Another piece of Nick Foles is heading to the Hall of Fame

There’s going to be more Nick Foles in the Pro Football Hall of Fame pretty soon. 

Of course, Foles’ cleats and jersey from his seven-touchdown game in 2013 are already in Canton. Now, there’s a famous photo that will join it. 

This photograph from Rob Carr of Getty Images has been named the winner of the Dave Boss Award of Excellence in the feature category. 

It’s a photo of Foles and his daughter Lily on the field of U.S. Bank Stadium after the Eagles beat the Patriots, 41-33, in Super Bowl LII. It’s appropriately named “Eagle Eye.”

According to the Hall of Fame’s press release, the contest was open to photographers on assignment at NFL games during the 2017 season, including the playoffs. 

Foles started the season on the bench and ended it as Super Bowl MVP celebrating the win with his daughter. And this photo says it all.

FOXBORO, Mass. — Eagles fans are still enjoying the first Super Bowl victory in franchise history. So they’re going to gloat a little bit.

Especially against the team they beat.

Since the Eagles are facing the Patriots in Thursday night's preseason game, it seemed like a good time for one fan to rub it in a little bit. So he hired a plane and told it to fly around Gillette Stadium for an hour in advance of the game.

The banner, of course, features the final score from Super Bowl LII: 41-33. The Eagles had their own fun with the score earlier in the day (see story).

For years, opposing fans would tell Eagles fans to let them know when their team finally won a Super Bowl. Now that the Eagles have actually done it, fans have let everyone know. Repeatedly.

Don’t expect Eagles fan to become quiet about it any time soon.

The Eagles have taken the chance to troll the Patriots one last time before they face the 2018 runner-ups. Amid the trash talk on social media from fans, the players have joined in and their troll level is simply unrivaled. 

It’s clear that the champs are just as excited as you are to take the field against New England. 

Here are some of the wonderful posts shared by your Super Bowl LII champions:

Jalen Mills and Stefen Wisniewski took the opportunity to point out that, despite their best attempts, the Patriots were unable to collect a sixth banner to hang at Gillette Stadium.

Malcolm Jenkins took some inspiration from Allen Iverson to share a photo of his step-over moment from the Super Bowl, when he hit Brandin Cooks. 

Rodney McLeod also took to Twitter to celebrate his nope moment with Cooks, when he tried to unsuccessfully hurtle over McLeod. 

You know Lane Johnson had to get in on the action, too. 

It seems that the team is relishing taking one last jab at the 2018 losers before the new season begins. Who are we kidding, the Eagles will never stop trolling the Patriots and we wouldn’t want them to.
