For the last four seasons the team that has played the Philadelphia Eagles in their home opener has won the Super Bowl. Coincidence or some sort of cool mojo that just happens to be placed in the San Diego Chargers lap this season? The Chargers head to Lincoln Financial Field on September 15, in the second week of the 2013 season. History has shown that this is where the magic starts to happen.
2012 – Baltimore Ravens actually lost to the Eagles in week 2, 24-23 to begin the season 2-0, but we know how the season ended in a dramatic Super Bowl win over the 49ers.
2011 – New York Giants played against the Eagles in week 3, beating them 29-16. Then after a crazy season ended up beating the Patriots in the Super Bowl.
This is not scientific but it is certainly good data. Cross your fingers, snap a wishbone and watch the show. I’m sure we all can agree that we hope this streak is not broken!
