Super Bowl LII Champions the Philadelphia Eagles: Jalen Mills, Alshon Jeffery, Chris Long, Nelson Agholor, Zach Ertz during an interview with host Jimmy Fallon on February 6, 2018 —

Members of the Eagles squad continued their post-Super Bowl tour of late night TV on Tuesday with appearances on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Late Night with Seth Meyers.

Jalen Mills, Alshon Jeffery, Chris Long, Nelson Agholor, and Zach Ertz stopped by Fallon on Tuesday, where the group discussed their Super Bowl win. Jeffery handled the duty of holding the Lombardi Trophy during the appearance.

“It was an unbelievable feeling,” tight end Ertz said. “When you’re five years old, you never think you’re actually going to be able to play in that game. But it was so much fun.”

Fallon also asked Ertz about his fourth-quarter, game-winning touchdown that prompted a serious review from referees on Sunday. As Ertz told Fallon, he assumed the review would be cursory, since “the NFL says they have to review every touchdown.”

“Then they just keep going over and over,” Ertz said. “I’m like, ‘Wait, what is going on over there?’” Eventually, the refs called the touchdown good.

Following the interview, Philly natives the Roots treated the guys to an amped up rendition of the Eagles Fight Song for an appropriate send-off.

Safety Malcolm Jenkins, for his part, appeared on Late Night on Tuesday, where he spoke with Seth Meyers about the Eagles Super Bowl win. Jenkins previously won a Super Bowl with the New Orleans Saints in 2009. It was his rookie year and the team’s first Super Bowl ever, and compared that win to the Eagles’ victory this week.

“Everything happened so fast, I didn’t get to enjoy it [in 2009],” he said. “But this time around, being a key contributor and everything that led up to this year was something different. Being able to bring that to the city of Philadelphia is something that myself and my family won’t forget.”

The appearances on Fallon and Late Night come following Jay Ajayi and Corey Clement’s joint visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday. In that appearance, the two Eagles poured Gatorade on Guillermo, Kimmel’s beloved security guard, and discussed Eagles fans’ celebrations here in Philly.

“I’m from Philly, I know how amped up they are,” Clement said. “When you think back, they greased the light poles because they knew what was coming after the game. Shout out to Philadelphia, man. We brought something special back home.”
