Tom Brady took the time to congratulate the Philadelphia Eagles on Instagram for their Super Bowl LII victory over the New England Patriots.

Between winning Super Bowl LII on Sunday to celebrating Thursday with an epic parade down Broad Street, it’s been quite an amazing week for the Philadelphia Eagles and their fans since nobody ever could have imagined this would all happen about a year ago. The Eagles and their fans have been waiting decades for a week like this when looking at all of the heartbreak and let down the team has experienced over the years, but it’s safe to say it was well worth it after this past season.

Philadelphia entered Super Bowl II knowing that taking down Tom Brady and New England was going to be the most difficult challenge they face all season since there’s a reason why the veteran quarterback is considered one of the best to ever play the game. In fact, the Eagles stilling coming through on the winning end against the Patriots despite Brady throwing for 505 yards to go along with three touchdowns is truly amazing, but also shows just how exciting of a Super Bowl this game truly was.

With Brady being one of the most competitive players to ever step foot on the football field in the NFL, fans can only imagine how difficult it was for the quarterback come up short of earning his sixth Super Bowl ring. And while Brady has taken some heat this week for running off the field at the conclusion of the game instead of going around to congratulate members of the Eagles, at least the Patriots quarterback was kind enough to show Doug Pederson‘s squad the respect they deserve with a touching Instagram post.

Amazing, right?

Not to mention, with both of these teams being the early favorites heading into 2018, there’s a good chance the Eagles and Patriots will square off once again in Super Bowl LIII. And if that does happen, Philadelphia will be up for the challenge once again.
