Zach Ertz knows Super Bowls.
On Feb. 4, 2018, with 2:25 remaining in the game, with the Eagles trailing by a single point, with the Eagles facing a third-and-7 from the 11-yard line, Ertz lined up out wide against Patriots safety Devin McCourty.
In single man-to-man coverage, he ran forward for a few yards before cutting to the inside on a slant route.
He caught the ball at the 6-yard line, took three steps, and dove for the goal line. He breached the goal line and gave the Eagles the go-ahead touchdown they so desperately needed.
“I think the Eagles are going to win 40-33” 😂😂
Gotta love Zach Ertz’s Super Bowl prediction
