WATCH: Ertz scores winning TD with controversial catch
The Philadelphia Eagles overcame the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl thanks to a late Zach Ertz touchdown.
Zach Ertz's controversial touchdown catch gave the Philadelphia Eagles the push they needed to beat the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
With less than two and a half minutes left, Ertz caught the ball, took several steps towards the end zone and leaped in. But as he fell to the ground he appeared to lose control and the ball popped out.
However, Ertz managed to catch the ball before it hit the ground to give the Eagles a 38-33 lead before they saw out a 41-33 victory.
The referees reviewed the play to see if it was a catch, and the call was confirmed.
The catch was extremely similar to a play involving Steelers tight end Jesse James' against the Patriots in week 15, which was deemed not a catch.
