Five former Ravens looking to be champions in Super Bowl LII

Five former Ravens looking to be champions in Super Bowl LII

Five former Ravens are looking to leave Minneapolis, Minnesota with more hardware than they came with.

Wide receiver Torrey Smith, defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan, safety Corey Graham and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe will all be fighting for the Eagles in their first seasons with the team.

On the Patriots side of the ball, defensive end Lawrence Guy could be bringing back another championship to New England.

Smith, Graham and Ellerbe all won Super Bowls with the Ravens during the 2012-2013 season.

Smith has played an important role on the team during both the regular season and in the playoffs. He tallied up 36 receptions, 430 yards and two touchdowns in the regular season. In their two playoff games, Smith had eight receptions, 108 yards and one touchdown. Smith has said he chose the Eagles over other teams that presented him higher offers because he knew they had the tools to reach this point.

Jernigan was traded to the Eagles along with a third-round compensatory pick in 2017 after spending his first three seasons in the NFL with the Ravens. The defensive tackle played in 15 games earning 16 solo tackles and two- and-a-half sacks. 

Graham- who is in his 11th season- played 14 games with the Eagles. He finished the regular season with 38 tackles and two interceptions. 

And finally, hoping to fly high with the Eagles is Dannell Ellerbe. The 32-year old only played in three games earning eight tackles and has been dealing with a hamstring injury.

Smith, Graham and Ellerbe have been prepping their fellow Eagles on the craziness that is Super Bowl week. Smith tweeted this prior to their trip to Minneapolis.

And Ellerbe told ex-teammate, Steve Smith, he's treating this week just like any other.

Lawrence Guy, who spent three seasons with the Ravens before heading to the Patriots, finished the regular season with 58 tackles and one sack. 

You can watch these familiar faces on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. ET on NBC.

Super Bowl LII Opening Night: Time, Ways to Watch, Live Stream, What to Expect

You don't have to wait until Sunday for all the Super Bowl LII fun to start because the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles are kicking off the weeklong buildup to the game Monday.

Super Bowl Opening Night is at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota on Monday, January 29,  and players from both the Patriots and Eagles will have interviews with the media and, for the second year, they will also hang out with each other on stage in front of fans.

In addition to members of the current teams playing in the Super Bowl, former Minnesota Vikings players will also be there.

If you aren’t in Minnesota to try and get tickets for Super Bowl Opening Night, it will be broadcast on the NFL Network and ESPN2.

While there are many questions about the Super Bowl matchup that could be answered during the event — and some pure fun and entertainment included too — Rob Gronkowski probably won’t be there.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Patriots tight end is not expected to be there because he is still in the concussion protocol. Gronkowski suffered a concussion during the AFC championship game when Jacksonville Jaguars’ Barry Church made helmet-to-helmet contact with him.

As the Eagles embrace their underdog role while the Patriots look to defend their Super Bowl title, the game is still almost a week away. So the real questions are which celebrities will show up, who will sport crazy costumes and what’s the most absurd thing we’ll see?

To make sure you don't miss a moment of Super Bowl Opening Night between the Patriots and Eagles, here is everything you need to know.

Let's take a look at how Eagles fans celebrated Sunday's NFC Championship win

Eagles fans are known for a lot of things, most tend to not be very positive.

Sunday, the internet made sure to help us all keep track of what was going on in Philly, before, during, and after the Eagles and Vikings played for the NFC Championship.

Let's take a look at how things progressed in the City of Brotherly Love.

In what has become the iconic symbol of Sunday's "celebrations", this poor fellow, according to TMZ, Andrew Tornetta, refused to comply with orders to disperse by police in the parking lot before the game.

Instead, according to the report, Tornetta punched a police horse twice in the right shoulder and then hit the human officer in the face, which is always a terrible decision.

Oh, and it's the second time in two weeks a police horse took a fist from a human in Philly. 

Fans also welcomed anyone wearing Vikings colors with class and, well, brotherly love.

Also before the game, the city decided to be proactive, and keep fans from climbing light poles if the Eagles won.

Of course, we knew what wouldn't stop them.

Sure enough, some fans were up to the Crisco Pole Challenge.

Others though, didn't need grease to have issues with a pole.

Some decided to create a new dance, which we're sure will catch on any day now.

There was also the classic dance-on-a-car move.

Oh, and let's not forget them letting the Vikings know they played a great game. 

Forget the Patriots and Eagles playing eachother in the Super Bowl.

The real matchup, is Patriots fans and Eagles fans.

May the best fanbase win.
