A Yazoo City native wins the Lombardi Trophy in his Super Bowl debut. Fletcher Cox had 2 tackles and 6 total pressures as the Eagles beat the Patriots 41-33.
The Philadelphia defensive line forced a turnover when it mattered most. A strip-sack of Tom Brady in the final minutes led to a Jake Elliott field goal that gave the Eagles an 8 point lead.
Cox becomes the 21st former Mississippi State Bulldog to win a Super Bowl.
