You didn’t need to see last week’s game to know that the Philadelphia Eagles are going to the Super Bowl this year. Our city and its residents are standing just a little taller as we all prepare for the big game. Hopefully, the 52nd Super Bowl Championship will be a historic game for “the birds”. This is only the third time the Eagles have made it this far in the league and if they win it would be a first for the team. Still, that less than noteworthy track record hasn’t stunted the pride of Eagles fans and Philly has some of the most well-known fans in the NFL (and not for being nice). What all this means is that Sunday’s game will be a Super Bowl celebration you won’t want to miss. With just a week to plan, we’d understand if you don’t know where you want to watch the game yet. We know residents of The Isle have fast-paced lifestyles so we did the work for you and made this extensive guide to Super Bowl Sunday 2018.
