The Eagles’ Season—and the $20 Bet—of a Lifetime

  1. The Vikings had to come play a cold-weather road game with a quarterback and team that had no experience doing that.
  2. The Vikings had all the pressure in the world on them, expected to win and play in a Super Bowl in their own stadium.
  3. The Eagles’ defense looked fantastic against the Falcons.
  4. Not having to face Drew Brees in a playoff game is always a good thing.
  5. Being an angry, pissed-off, disrespected “underdog” in a playoff game is always a good thing.
  6. The Eagles had beaten the Falcons without playing even a decent game offensively. Foles had looked good enough, but the team had made multiple miscues. A cleaner performance against Minnesota would bode well.
  7. Vikings fans did this to Rocky. And that’s some bad, bad ju-ju.
