Eagles arrive in Minneapolis ahead of Super Bowl LII

Does it mean anything that the most dominant team in National Football League history never, you know, dominates?

The two teams are staying in hotels in Bloomington near the Mall of America, which is where the old Met Stadium stood until the 1980s and where Bud Grant famously forbid his players from using heaters at their bench during games. And in each of those matchups, they've been underdogs.

- The Philadelphia Eagles have touched down in Minneapolis prior to Super Bowl LII, with just one week to go until kickoff at the big game.

Fresh off the plane the Birds buses arrived at Super Bowl Hotel at Minnesota's Mall of America. "Nothing is going to bring down these colors right here". The betting public has been going hard with the Eagles, so the number has shrunk to 4.5 points. "I've been putting my family in a Battle Royale-type situation, so whoever comes out on top actually gets to go to the game".

But as the Patriots secured another AFC East title, reports hinted at a growing rift between head coach Bill Belichick, Brady and owner Robert Kraft.

So why do I like the Eagles? I don't love hunting so much, but my grandpa would sit me on his lap and I'd shoot his.22 gauge into the tree with the target. Philadelphia's interview session will begin at 7 p.m. ET and last for approximately 90 minutes to two hours. What the Eagles can do that many other teams cannot, is it can make New England a one-dimensional team. Running back James White was explaining the Patriots' recent struggles in the ground game when he turned his attention to Sunday's opponent.

"Tom Brady had an appointment earlier this week to remove the 12 stitches on his throwing hand that he played with against the Jaguars, sources say".

We expect a huge day by Tom Brady due to his vast experience and success in the Super Bowl.

In preparation for its matchup against the New England Patriots, the Philly faithful are pulling out all the stops to try to beat the five-time champions, which are favored to win Sunday's Super Bowl. Needless to say, he got his revenge by pulling off one of the biggest upsets in professional sports to spoil New England's chance at a flawless season. After quarterback Carson Wentz tore his anterior cruciate ligament, Foles carried the Philadelphia Eagles to its first Super Bowl appearance since 2005, when the Patriots defeated Donovan McNabb's Eagles 24-21. During his free time, he blogs about fantasy sports and handicaps games.
