Every Super Bowl has to have a winner and a loser Cheap Byron Maxwell Jersey , and in a game like this, that's a shame. This year, it was the Philadelphia Eagles who won their first-ever Super Bowl by defeating the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII by a score of 41-33.It was a dramatic game that ended in historic fashion. The offense was unheard of and both quarterbacks set records for yards thrown in an NFL postseason game, referees had to play a role in the game and one defensive strip ended up being the reason the Patriots couldn't mount the comeback fans are so used to seeing.Despite the score and whomever you chose to cheer for, this game was so unbelievable, it was easy to pick winners and losers. Tom Brady and Nick Foles led the way for the winners and The Hoodie and the kickers led the way for the losers.Winner: Nick FolesWHAT. A. PLAY.@Eagles throw up the trick play to Nick Foles for the touchdown... ON FOURTH DOWN!Incredible.#SBLII | #FlyEaglesFly— NFL UK (@NFLUK) February 5, 2018He was the story all week and was unbelievable throughout the entire game including making the catch on an incredibly gutsy fourth down play to give the Eagles a 10-point lead heading into the second half. The question was could he hold up against Tom Brady? Apparently, he could.He was the first player to throw and catch a touchdown in a Super Bowl and he'll be in the history books forever because of that stat. He wound up winning the game MVP award and this was after almost quitting football. You can't write a better story than the one Nick Foles delivered.Loser: Malcolm ButlerPatriots cornerback Malcolm Butler was benched to start Super Bowl LII.— NESN (@NESN) February 4, 2018It was a coach's decision but Malcolm Butler was not going to be part of the defensive scheme of the New England Patriots and he was visibly emotional about the decision.聽 You could see him wiping the tears away during聽the singing聽of聽America the Beautiful.聽When "The Hoodie" was asked why he chose not to play Butler on anything but special teams Cheap Customized New York Giants Jerseys ,聽 Coach Belichick simply said he was making the decisions that gave his team the best opportunity to win.Al Michaels of NBC explained during the broadcast that the lack of defensive playing time for Butler聽was why the decision was made. It might not have made a difference, but the fact that the Patriots lost will make the decision a questionable one.Winner: Tom BradyAnother day, another #NFL postseason record for #TomBrady#SuperBowl #SBLII #SB52— FanSided (@FanSided) February 5, 2018He might not go down as the winning quarterback聽from Super Bowl LII but he still had one hell of a game and set all sorts of records throwing for over 500 yards. He led the Patriots to the highest score for a losing team in Super Bowl history and while it might not feel like it for him right away, the loss was not Brady's fault and he has to be considered a winner just by what he accomplished in this game.He was throwing passes and touchdowns all game long, he just so happened to throw less of them than Nick Foles. This was a game of pure offense and Brady was as good as he always is. His only mistake was a dropped pass in the first half that could have been a difference-maker.
LOS ANGELES — Two things Clayton Kershaw clearly hates: Being on the disabled list and having pitch restrictions while on the mound.

The Los Angeles Dodgers' left-hander might be done with both when he takes the mound Tuesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Kershaw will be making his third start since coming off the disabled list for his most recent back injury and has been trending in a positive direction.

What Kershaw would like to see is more of the offense the Dodgers showed in Monday's series opener, when the club scored 17 runs on 21 hits in an easy victory.

Tasked with slowing that offense at Dodger Stadium, while matching Kershaw pitch for pitch, will be Pirates right-hander Ian Nova.

If Kershaw is almost all the way back on top after an injury Odell Beckham Jr Jersey , Nova is there already. In four starts since coming off the DL because of a sprained right finger, Nova is 2-0 with a 1.75 ERA.

Kershaw is only this far along in his return from the DL because the Dodgers pulled a last-minute switch on June 23, and had him pitch in New York against the Mets instead of with Triple-A Oklahoma City on a rehab outing.

Kershaw threw 55 pitches against the Mets, giving up two runs on five hits over three innings. On June 28 against the Chicago Cubs, Kershaw was back at it, throwing 68 pitches while giving up one run on four hits over five innings.

A natural progression would have Kershaw at about 80 pitches on Tuesday, but Kershaw has a way of getting more out of himself when the situation requires it.

"I've proven that I'm healthy," Kershaw told reporters after his most recent start. "So now, next time out I'm sure the restriction should hopefully be pretty close to off. (I will) get ready and just try to beat an opponent."

Nova has thrown between 86 and 94 pitches in his four starts since coming off the DL and has given up one or no runs in three of those outings. The one where he did not was on Wednesday at New York. But he did hold the Mets to three runs over six innings Weston Richburg Jersey 49ers , keeping the Pirates close enough to put together a ninth-inning rally for a victory.

That victory was part of a Pirates run where they won four of six games and took series at New York and San Diego. Sure there was a five-game losing streak before that, but going back even further, the Pirates had won four of five.

So even though they were roughed up by the Dodgers on Monday, the Pirates have learned the value of resiliency.

"We're well aware of what we need to improve upon," manager Clint Hurdle said, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "We're well aware of our monthly progress and then some of our monthly challenges. Love the fact that the game brings attention to specific areas, daily, weekly, monthly Cheap Dontae Johnson Jersey , and then I love to watch how some guys are able to fight and battle and work through it."

Up next is a challenge against Kershaw, who is 2-3 with a 3.18 ERA in 11 career starts against Pittsburgh. The Pirates are one of two National League teams Kershaw has a losing record against in the regular season, along with the Philadelphia Phillies.

Nova knows his way around the Dodgers, going 1-0 with a 2.31 ERA in two starts, one in each of the previous two seasons.
