doubters and their haters, but they kept their focus, they kept their cool on each other and very focused on winning. >> we kept getting bigger and all we were worried about was being in that room and we worked hard all year and it just paid off. >> how important was it to get behind foles after losing in los angeles? >> foles, he just kept his composure and worked on his craft and he got the job done in the biggest game of the year. >> reporter: yeah, and that was a key compone want, the team rallying around foles, giving him as much confidence as possible to especially step into the it big game and do so well. and of course we now know he earned mvp honors. dray clark, nbc 10 news. 5:36 right now. let's talk about how we got here. an underdog victory with an

the foles special. and he threw a touch down to a super bowl -- becoming a super bowl mvp. >> we have such a great group of guys, such a great coaching staff. we feel confident coming in, and we just went out there and played football. we played this game since we were a little kid. we dreamed about this moment. there's plenty of kids walking around right now dreaming of this moment, and to be here with my family, my teammates, my wife, this city, we're very blessed. >> dreams come true. carson wentz tweeted after the game god is so good, world champions. i told you my boy nick foles was going to shine tonight. well deserved, my bro. he continues to be a leader, doesn't he? ♪
>> and as dreams become a reality, that's the overall theme as the eagles get ready for the bash on broad street. they're not backing down, and they fully expect to be in the super bowl again. they think they'll do it again and again. >> wild parties. great to see everyone pass the trophy around as you saw in that video. we were standing with some of them and they were like, hey, i got pictures to take. kiss that up. >> and the new chant will be foles, foles, foles. >> right now meteorologist bill henley. he has your forecast for this sleberatory monday. the majors are doing fine as jessica boyington has been telling us this morning, but some of the side streets especially in the suburb and lehigh valley some some icy spots. we've got about 50 school delays.
it's a seven day forecast right now, but coming up you'll see those delays. we will indeed celebrate with sunshine today and again tomorrow. but wednesday, that's a great day to not have a parade. it is going to be a wash out and could start with some snow. right now just have to layer up. 31 degrees in the suburbs, 33 in delaware. just cold enough in chestnut hill, parkicide even in westmont area with some slippery spots. be on the safe side. we are clear. we'll see sunshine, a lot of it today. we won't get any of those snow showers. you see how quickly they're moving? that wind, we will feel that during the day today. this is what's happening right now. 34 in philadelphia. a the winds will be increasing.
that 24 mile an hour wind making it feel like it's in the teens. and right on through the day the wind is going to do its best to keep the temperatures down. the difference is for lots of sunshine. now, the best chance for that wet weather will be on wednesday for the entire area. for the rest of the week it's looking dry until we get to the weekend. saturday starts dry and temperatures will be climbing into the 40s, but there's a chance of some late day or evening showers for a few neighborhood, lehigh valley, jersey and jersey shore. and then we'll all get rainfall, but temperatures will stay mild on sunday. up to 51 degrees in new jersey. i'll show you how long that's going to last in the ten day on ten. >> something tells me those school delays may have a double purpose, those icy spots and the weather. >> they were like, well orb it's going to be awful.
stay home and be safe. heading out the door there there might be a few slippery spots. majors are okay. right now the boulevard and our cameras right around 17th street both look good. actually seeing a bit of delay here, which is odd. a second ago i had a vehicle off to had shoulder. it was there by itself, and now it's gone, too. but we do have a few accidents popping up. and also watching burlington township southbound side right near route 41 there's a crash near. if you're feeling nervous about it take 295. back to you guys. an important part of the eagles extended team about the importance of teamwork. and here's pamela live for us this morning. >> reporter: well, the shelves are stocked here with that new super bowl merchandise. and take a look at all the
gearing on up. this is look at the line in wilmington, delaware, where eagles fans sprinted to nearby sport stores to grab their super bowl lii champion merchandise as soon as that team lifted the trophy. >> pamela osborn live at a modells where this brand new gear is hitting the shelves and racks. >> reporter: and in some cases like this one it's just coming out of the box here. they have glasses, the underdog tees are back. but the reel thing people are coming in for is the super bowl
championship merchandise. and you can get one with a super bowl ring on the front as well. so a lot of people have been in here. there was a line forming before the store opened up at 5:00 this morning. everyone just trying to get pieces of a super bowl win to represent the eagles today. we actually talked to one dad who has a bar tending job. he didn't even go home last night. he came straight here as soon as they opened. take a listen to why and what he had on his mind. >> you know, because i worked, i didn't have a chance to hang out with my son and my daughter and my wife to watch the game. so i thought one way to make up for it was i could been home by 3:40, 3:45, why not wait until 5:00 and when they wake up in the morning to go to school daddy will have a super bowl shirt for them. >> reporter: and i think that
will make up for them not being able to hang out. >> dad of the year right there. >> yeah. >> you know, i sent a text message to my husband about an hour ago and said get up and please get to modells. we need some gear because fans already started picking up last night, vai. >> yeah, that's a good call for you. get ben to the store because the stuff you have there has to be put back on your desk. >> let's talk about the eagles and their families. some would say that's the difference that it's made for them. >> yeah, they feel like they're a family, and that's probably why it's so easy to love them. everyone so personable right up to wife pederson. take a look. genie, come here and give me a
hug. congratulations. how does it feel? >> oh, my god, it's amazing. >> were you guys sitting on pins and needles the entire way? late in the game, what were you thinking? >> yes. we got this. we got this, honey. we got it. >> genie, we love you. >> i love you. >> oh, my god. congratulations. >> pure joy. >> we got this, we got this. that's mom terry pederson, that's doug's mom. how about these guys? >> oh, my gosh, one of the night's memorable moments came after the game was won. confetti rained down onto our eagles. they relished in the moment. they were rolling in it, people were taking pictures with it. it's really kind of special when you're there, and we were in when it all came raining down on us.
>> people saw it and they were texting me from home -- they didn't ask me to bring gear back. they were saying grab some of that confetti and bring it back with you. >> there were a bunch of us doing it, and i said this is history right here. this is really important. and my phone blew up, too. one person said can you bring some back for my kid. somebody else please, if you can just bring back a handful. this means a lot to this sity. >> so tracy disappears and next thing i see she's walking across the field with a trash bag. and then we start picking up confetti. it was awesome. i hope we don't need a shovel back home, right? let's check in with meteorologist bill henley and find out what the weather's like back there. bill? very concerned about -- >> i don't have a chair. >> what's going on over there? >> let's do it.
>> the chair is just getting in. it was out celebrating. and why not? there's certainly lots to celebrate this morning. and not too much to worry about, but there are a few icy spots. we've got some school delays this morning, so if you're heading out the door right now, most of the area's doing just fine. it's finally easy being green. sunshine is going to be nice and bright. we're going to be layering up during the day. those icy spots this morning just a few pockets in the suburbs and lehigh valley. and that's where we're seeing the delays. up to about 50 delays so far. cold winds will be blowing all day long. so if you hit the layers of green you'll be fine today. wednesday it looks like it's going to be a soaker and may even start with a little bit of snow. temperatures starting in the 30s and slowly coming down this morning. lehigh valley and the suburbs, this is more likely where you're going to see pockets of ice. main roads have been treated, but you'll find some spots
turning the corner. if it looks like it's damp or got that sheen on it this morning, treat it like ice to start with. temperatures are in the 20s and lower 30s, just below freezing, just enough to make you bundle up this morning. but we will see lots of sunshine. and so in addition to those layers, you'll need your sunglasses today. those snow showers will miss us. in fact, nothing coming our way until we get to wednesday. and here's wednesday morning. 4:30 in the morning. a little bit of snow moving through baltimore. it moves through our area first thing, but mainly going to be a rain event wednesday. wednesday it looks like not a great day for any parade activity. pick any other day this week and we'll be just fine. 37 degrees this afternoon, we'll hit 44, and a bit of a mix in the morning and quickly changes over to rain on wednesday. and then we're dry for thursday and friday and most of the day
onsied will by dry. but clouds return. we could see some showers late saturday night, and sunday looks like it's going to be a rainy one. drying out with temperatures staying in the 40s next monday, tuesday and wednesday. all right, bill, thank you. just like that jessica's back on her feet. >> i just can't sit down. that's all it is, guys. who can really? no one can sleep either. just be warned. it's not too bad moving through center city on the majors. but if you're through center city on broad street there's a lot of cleanup there. a lot of extra cars, more cars than normal for how early it is, too. both cameras on the schuylkill and broad street back open following road closures last night, of course. and there are a few crashes. one right around marsh road and also watching mass transit.
i'm about to pop a cap of "mmm fresh" in that washer with unstopables in-wash scent boosters by downy. ah, it's so fresh. and it's going to last from wash to wear for up to 12 weeks. right, freshness for weeks! downy unstopables. for a fresh too feisty to quit. and now try downy unstopables with the original scent of tide
all right, many of us if not most of us across the philly region watched the eagles big win at hole. maybe you were with family, friends or with strangers at a bar or restaurant. >> it was a good game to watch. but as we know, some got to make the trek to minneapolis to watch the game in person. and we certainly heard them in the stadium. nbc 10's randy gyllenhaal is live in bloomington, minnesota. and randy, you talked with fans about how electric it was to be in the stands as the birds made history.
>> reporter: yeah, it was loud, almost felt like a home game. there were 67,000 people in that stadium on the edge of their seats the entire game. you talk about drama. when that last play, that ball sailing towards the end zone bouncing around and hitting the ground, that is when we heard one of it loudest eagles chants in history echoing through u.s. banks stadium. ♪ fly eagles fly on the road to victory ♪ e-a-g-l-e-s, eagles. >> eagles fans stayed in their seats and cheered ston stop fno more than an hour after patriots fans. at one point police had to ask them to get out. many who had been going to eagles games for decades, never

underdogs no more. the philadelphia eagles are the super bowl champions. congratulations. >> they are the words eagles nation has been waiting decades to hear. the lombardy trophy is coming home to philadelphia after the eagles' historic super bowl win against the patriots. here at home fans flooded the streets at the end of game. our cameras did capture others scaling the fence of city hall. broad street was wall to wall with people reveling in the victory last night, but in the live picture on the right you can see the celebrations have died down for now. good morning, everyone. thank you so much for being with us on this very special monday morning. i'm ted greenberg. >> and i'm rosemary conners. for now, that
