Eagles to wear Super Bowl LII champions jersey patch in season opener

As if Philadelphia fans haven't spent enough of their hard-earned money on Eagles championship gear, now there's yet another piece of must-have Super Bowl swag to add to the collection.

The Eagles will wear Nike jerseys with Super Bowl LII champions patches on them when they host the Atlanta Falcons in Week 1 on Thursday, Sept. 6, at Lincoln Financial Field, according to a posting on the Official NFL Shop's Instagram.

"The Eagles will wear this limited edition patch during the 2018 NFL season opener," the post reads. It also links to the website where you can purchase said jerseys.

We reached out to the Eagles to confirm and have not received a response.

The New England Patriots wore similar patches to begin the 2017 season but they most certainly will not be wearing Super Bowl champions patches to begin the 2018 season — because they lost Super Bowl LII by the score of 41-33 in a game in which Tom Brady dropped a pass and Nick Foles caught one for a touchdown.

Fans can purchase the Nike Eagles jerseys with the Super Bowl LII champions patch on Fanatics.com. They currently have 12 players available as of this posting: Carson Wentz, Foles, Zach Ertz, Jason Kelce, Fletcher Cox, Chris Long, Corey Clement, Lane Johnson, Alshon Jeffery, Malcolm Jenkins, Brandon Graham and Jalen Mills. There are green and black options as well as ladies' cuts. They retail for $119.99.

Here's a closer look at the patch:

UPDATE: here's what the actual patch will look like:

Pick some PPA violations and we'll tell you which Philly athlete you are

Is there anything more Philly than a Philadelphia Parking Authority violation? 

There is no greater sadness than walking out to your car, spotting that slim white and blue envelope on the front window from the distance, and just knowing it signifies: they got you. 

To those of us whom have fought this long battle, we salute you. While the PPA may have temporarily suspended some of their violations, we know it's only a matter of time before they emerge back and stronger than ever.

So, we've decided to create this handy little quiz for you to determine your Philly athelete personality, depending on the type of violation you will likely recieve next. 

Did the Flyers just troll the Eagles on social media?

Did the Flyers just troll the Eagles on social media?

The Eagles have been quite the disappointment this season, with the latest being their atrocious 37-31 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday in South Florida. And with disappointments come possible troll jobs? 

As the clock wound down and fans became increasingly exasperated with the team, social media anger started to build and it looks like one fellow Philadelphia team may have added just an oh-so-subtle jab in there.

As the 37-31 score went final, the Flyers sent out quite the interesting reminder of their impressive record this November. It seems like they don’t want fans to forget that they are NOT part of the teams that have been disappointing this city. 

You have to admit, the timing is a bit suspicious. 


Fans certainly seem to think that the Flyers are trolling the Eagles with their post, based on the replies.

We love a little friendly fire between the Philadelphia sports teams, if this is a true troll job. Or maybe it’s just a conveniently scheduled tweet by the Flyers' social media team. 

You be the judge.
