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.
2010 – Green Bay Packers actually open the season with a 27-20 win over the Eagles. Their trip to the Super Bowl had them face off in a great nail biter where they defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers.
2009 – New Orleans Saints arrived in Philly with something to prove. Defeating the Eagles soundly and finished the season 13-3. They got their first Super Bowl win over the Indianapolis Colts.
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!
