The first touchdown of Super Bowl LII was one for the highlight reel.

Alshon Jeffery made a leaping grab over Patriots cornerback Eric Rowe for a 34-yard touchdown with 2:34 left in the first quarter to give the Eagles a 9-3 lead.

The 6-3 Jeffery beat the 6-1 Rowe on a go route, and Foles uncorked a deep pass for his No. 1 receiver.

Jake Elliott missed the ensuing PAT.
