ESPN's Sal Paolantonio takes readers inside the Eagles' improbable 2017 season, one which culminated in the franchise's long-awaited first Super Bowl victory—from their hot start in the fall with nine straight wins, to the unfathomable loss of star quarterback Carson Wentz, to the sweetest victory over the New England Patriots in Minnesota featuring the unforgettable "Philly Special," and finally to the raucous celebrations on Broad Street. Through exclusive interviews, fans will learn how Philadelphia overcame Wentz's season-ending injury which instantly branded them underdogs, gaining inside perspective into the dynamic between head coach Doug Pederson, back-up quarterback and eventual Super Bowl LII MVP Nick Foles, and the many individuals who stepped up and answered the call at the right times. Paolantonio captures the mood of the team week by week, every step of the way, profiling numerous key players, coaches, and more.
