Since the start of Super Bowl LVII, players from both teams have had trouble staying upright on the new turf surface at State Farm Stadium.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts changed his cleats between the first and second quarters, and many cleats were found along a sideline at halftime. On the final play of the game, a Hail Mary, Hurts slipped and deflected the pass for several yards.

Even Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco slipped in the end zone just before starting to celebrate a touchdown.
The turf was at Oklahoma State University and the United States Golf Association provided funding and research.

«We both had to play on that grass,» he said after the game, via 94 WIP Radio.
