Perhaps the most talked-about play in Super Bowl LII, Philly Special is a trick play designed to get the quarterback into the flat to receive a pass. In the Philadelphia Eagles’ version of the play, it starts with Trips Bunch Left and ends with a spectacular fourth-down catch by quarterback Nick Foles for the touchdown and a 10-point lead over the New England Patriots headed into the half.
