Philadelphia Eagles running backs Corey Clement and Jay Ajayi stopped by “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Monday to bask in their Sunday Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots.
During their appearance, the duo discussed the trick play in which Eagles tight end Trey Burton threw a touchdown pass to quarterback Nick Foles. Clement said that the team only practiced the play three times during the two weeks leading to the Super Bowl. Ajayi couldn’t help but compare the play to the Patriots’ own failed fourth down conversion during which quarterback Tom Brady dropped the pass.
“It only made it sweeter that a couple plays in the other series with the Pats they threw it to 12, and you saw what happened with that one,” Ajayi said. “Our quarterback, you know, he gets it done.”
Kimmel also asked Clement about his controversial touchdown.
“Did you have possession there?” Kimmel asked.
“Yes, I did,” Clement replied. “That ball did not move once. It didn’t move once.”
