Several local TV affiliates in Philadelphia are making sure that Eagles fans are getting as much double coverage of the game as they can handle. Special programming before and after the game, and live reports from New Orleans are just some of the coverage fans can enjoy.
Kickoff is at 4 o’clock and the game will be carried on Fox.
But several local TV affiliates in Philadelphia are making sure that ‘Philly, Philly’ fans are getting as much double coverage of the game as they can handle.
That the Eagles are even in the playoffs seemed unlikely just a few weeks ago. And it took a blocked field goal against the Chicago Bears that double doinked off the goal post to get the Eagles into the next round against the Saints.
With a dramatic win like that, do you think Eagles’ fans would be satisfied with just watching the game itself? No way.
