Super Bowl 52 Patriots vs Eagles: Duron Harmon intercepts Nick Foles for the game's first turnover

The “Closer” strikes again.

The New England Patriots find themselves in a nine-point hole midway through the second quarter and, after losing wide receiver Brandin Cooks to injury, were in search of a spark. The defense delivered it: Safety Duron Harmon picked off Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles for the game's first turnover.

Harmon, as has been the case for most of his career, was in the right spot at the right time to catch the deflection. The interception is a much-needed break for a Patriots team that has struggled with mistakes and inconsistencies.
