The Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl win has certainly changed our lives forever. Perhaps it will even serve as a defining feature for a new generation of Eagles fans. Dialing down the hyperbole a bit, the win has presented me with opportunities I would not have had otherwise. Here is one of them.
A few weeks ago I came across a data viz created by Adam McCann. He’s a New York Giants fan, but let’s not hold that against him (he’s a cool guy). McCann visualized the plays from the Giants Super Bowl 42 win against the Patriots. I thought it was really clever so I decided to adapt it to the best Super Bowl in history. McCann wasn’t too thrilled.

Check it out below. Hover over the hops and lines to see each play’s detail. A less interactive 24 x 36 poster of this sucker will be hanging in my office soon.
