PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - The NFL jumped the gun and posted a promo on Facebook for a Super Bowl between the Vikings and Patriots.
This is a screenshot of the controversial Facebook post which features a contest to win Super Bowl tickets, but it shows the matchup between the Patriots and the Vikings...wait what?
"It has to be fake the Eagles are going to be in the Super Bowl," one fan said.
"We're not putting all this effort into this cheering screaming shouting so that somebody can put this put us out before we get started we're going to win this weekend," another fan said.
Eagles fans are counting down the hours and minutes until Sunday's NFC championship game here in Philadelphia.
Whatever the reason for the post, whether it was an accident or something else, it may have given more status and bite to that underdog feeling.
