In the moments after the Philadelphia Eagles clinched their first Super Bowl in franchise history, the NBC cameras show Tom Brady leaving the field. It didn’t appear as if Brady congratulated any players from the Eagles, and social media particularly noticed he didn’t shake hands and congratulate Nick Foles.
Foles won Super Bowl MVP as he guided the Eagles to a 41-33 win over the New England Patriots, and while he didn’t necessarily outplay Brady — who threw for over 500 yards and three touchdowns — he was at least playing on the same level as the regular season MVP.
Spectators on Twitter weren’t pleased with Brady for not shaking Foles’ hand after the game.
Cam Newton was ripped by the media for being a sore loser after the Carolina Panthers lost to the Denver Broncos a few years ago, and it will be intriguing to see if Brady gets the same treatment for jogging off the field without congratulating the Eagles and specifically Foles.
Perhaps Brady said something to Foles later, but it was a bad look for him after they lost the Super Bowl.
