AROUND THE STATE:

SUPER BOWL-MINNESOTA RETURN?

MINNEAPOLIS —After years of planning and many millions in spending, there was one thing organizers of Super Bowl 52 couldn’t control — a Minnesota winter. The Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots played inside. But as fans were heading to U.S. Bank Stadium at noon Sunday, the temperature in Minneapolis was minus-2 degrees, with a wind chill of negative 23 — by far the coldest Super Bowl on record — raising questions about whether the NFL’s marquee event would ever return to Minnesota. By Amy Forliti. SENT: 910 words, photos.

SPORTS:

SUPER BOWL-CHAMPION EAGLES

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — He has traveled a long road: starter and castoff, journeyman and backup. Now Nick Foles stands at the summit of his sport. How did it happen? Oh, sure, there was the mid-December injury to rising star Carson Wentz, with Foles stepping in and stepping up. But how, in a breathtaking championship game Sunday night, did this quarterback beat Tom Brady at the five-time Super Bowl winner’s specialty, a shootout? For Foles — and for his Philadelphia Eagles — there is one underlying theme to it all: perseverance. By Barry Wilner. SENT: 720 words, photos.

SUPER BOWL FOLO

MINNEAPOLIS — Nick Foles did his best Tom Brady impersonation, leading a late-game comeback to cap a season that began as a backup and ended as Super Bowl MVP. Foles’ journey mirrored Brady’s 16 years ago and ended late Sunday night, with green-and-white confetti falling as delirious Philadelphia Eagles fans celebrated their first NFL title since 1960. No quarterback has gone from backup to title game MVP in one season since Brady replaced Drew Bledsoe in the 2001 season. By Josh Dubow. SENT: 1,200 words, photos.

SUPER BOWL-MISSING WENTZ

MINNEAPOLIS — Perhaps there will come a time when Carson Wentz wants to talk about having to watch the Philadelphia Eagles win their first Super Bowl. For the man expected to be the next franchise quarterback for the Eagles, it wasn’t going to be the moments after Nick Foles led a 41-33 win over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots on Sunday night. By Schuyler Dixon. SENT: 760 words, photos.

SUPER BOWL-BRADY

MINNEAPOLIS — The ball had just been whacked out of Tom Brady’s right hand at the worst possible moment for the New England Patriots, giving the Philadelphia Eagles the ball just before the two-minute warning. Brady sat on the turf, resting his arms on his knees with a pose of resignation. Once he reached the sideline and plopped down on the bench, he lowered his head and stared down for several seconds. By Dave Campbell. SENT: 690 words, photos.

SUPER BOWL-PATRIOTS-COORDINATORS FUTURE

MINNEAPOLIS — The Patriots’ loss in the Super Bowl likely will be the last game for New England’s two coordinators, both almost certain to be named head coaches elsewhere in the next few days. Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels led a typical Patriots offensive showcase Sunday night, as New England gained 613 yards against Philadelphia. Defensive coordinator Matt Patricia was left answering questions on why his unit couldn’t stop the Eagles, who gained 538 in the 41-33 victory. By Kyle Hightower. SENT: 620 words, photos.

BKC-STUMBLING MINNESOTA

MINNEAPOLIS — With eight losses in the last nine games, Minnesota’s once-bright season has taken a dim turn. Missing two of their original starters, with a third playing through a persistent injury, the Gophers have been forced to endure another winter of growing pains they appeared to be past with last year’s breakout fourth-place finish in the Big Ten. By Dave Campbell. UPCOMING: 580 words by 6:30 p.m. CST.
