MINNEAPOLIS (WTXF) - The Eagles have landed.
The team arrived in Minnesota Sunday afternoon. Now, the Super Bowl madness begins.
Enthusiastic Eagles fans shouted cheers and chants outside of Atlantic Aviation as the Birds stepped off buses and boarded the plane bound for Minneapolis and the Super Bowl.
“We love the Eagles and wanted to send them off to tell them we’re rooting for them. We have their back and we’re so excited,” exclaimed fan Danielle Falcone.
Another fan, C.J. Pinto, had this to say, “After seeing Nick Foles in the playoffs, I’m like, I think this guy can do it.”
“I think they have something special. I know that every player is in it to win it and I think they could really win it this year,” fan Mia Falcone said.
Players are seeing support from football fans across the country, many of whom are tired of seeing the Patriots in the Super Bowl.
FOX 29 caught up with players doing final drills at practice on Saturday. Players say they plan to do what they've been doing all season long, feeling they have earned a spot in the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots.
The birds know they have a job to do, and that is to bring home a Super Bowl title.
Players are ready for the excitement that comes along with the territory, but say the game next Sunday will remain their number one priority.
