Eagles reportedly will wear ‘Super Bowl LII Champions’ patch in Week 1
The Philadelphia Eagles evidently will commemorate their Super Bowl victory one final time, this time during their regular-season opener at Lincoln Financial Field.
A report from Philly sports-centric site Crossing Broad reports the Eagles’ jerseys will feature a “Super Bowl LII” champions patch during the team’s Week 1 home game against the Atlanta Falcons on Sept. 6.
Not surprisingly, the NFL will seek to capitalize on the anticipated interest from Eagles fans by making jerseys featuring the patch available on Fanatics.
The Eagles have been basking in the afterglow of the team’s Super Bowl run that culminated in an upset of the mighty New England Patriots, and rightfully so. Interestingly, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson indicated the revelry would come to an end at 12:01 a.m. on June 15, the day the Eagles received their Super Bowl rings.
“Honestly, after the ring ceremony, to me, we’ve put that to bed, we’ve put that to rest, and we move onto 2018,” Pederson said ahead of the ring ceremony.
Pederson later indicated the team no longer can rely upon an underdog mentality now as reigning champs, instead suggesting the Eagles are “the hunted.”
All that said, there’s no harm in just one more celebratory act, right?
