Let’s give “Kurt” Cousins and Skol nation a warm Philadelphia welcome.
Seriously though, how awful is this for Viking fans? They lost 38-7 at the Linc in the NFC Championship Game, then had to watch the Eagles win the Super Bowl in their home stadium. Now they get to watch the Birds raise the Super Bowl banner to kick off the 2018 season.
It’s a recurring nightmare. It’s like the Groundhog Day movie, but instead of Bill Murray waking up in Punxsutawney, you just continually see Nick Foles throwing bombs down the field. And it never ends. You can’t sleep it off.
For what it’s worth, here’s how the NFL Kickoff Game has played out going back to 2010:
