Nick Foles won more than the Super Bowl and the game’s MVP trophy last week. He won ownership of the New England Patriots.

Well … he did so briefly, according to Google.

It lasted for a few hours before Google would remedy the error. They then blamed the issue on a change on Wikipedia

“This was caused by a change on Wikipedia that was briefly reflected in our results,” a Google spokesperson said in a statement. “It’s been fixed on Wikipedia, and we have fixed it on our end as well.”

Using Wikipedia edits to poke fun at sports figures, teams, and fan bases is nothing new.

As far as Eagles-related Philadelphian mischief goes, we can only pray they stick to internet-related pranks from now on.
