Philadelphia Eagles want to draw 'strength' from a painful Super Bowl defeat

    Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts fumbles the ball against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    (CNN)Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni said his team will turn the pain of defeat into "strength" after losing against the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII.

    It was the smallest of margins that ultimately condemned the Eagles to the 38-35 loss at State Farm Stadium in Arizona -- a controversial holding call against cornerback James Bradberry with around 90 seconds left to play.
      That allowed the Chiefs and NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes to run down the clock before Harrison Butker kicked the go-ahead field goal.
        Soon after, Sirianni had to find the words to console his heartbroken players.
        "I just reminded them that all the things we've been through in our lives was something that was adversity," he told reporters. "We'll overcome this too.
        "The type of guys that we have in there -- we will use this to motivate us. We will use this pain -- will use this failure -- to motivate us so we can make it a strength."
          Philadelphia was aiming to win its second Super Bowl after winning its first championship against the New England Patriots five years ago.
