WATCH: Torrey Smith pulls a David Tyree with helmet catch

The Philadelphia Eagles kicked a field goal on the opening possession of Super Bowl LII. That was aided by a third-and-12 conversion from Nick Foles to Torrey Smith, where Smith made a catch that might be too familiar to fans of the New England Patriots.

Maybe not quite as spectacular as David Tyree’s catch 10 years ago. But still, Smith made quite the nice play, pinning the ball against his helmet.

The Eagles got the ball as far as the New England two. The Pats defense held firm, forcing a 25-yard kick from Jake Elliott.
