The Philadelphia Eagles were set to take on the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII, a matchup in which they were underdogs against Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.
The Eagles didn’t have the look of a team in its first Super Bowl, scared of a dynasty. Meanwhile, the Patriots came out to the same song they’ve used in every one of their Super Bowls since 2002, a year when Ozzy Osbourne was better known for a reality show.
The Eagles stood at the tunnel entrance, ready to embark on what would be a defining moment for everyone in that room. Then Meek Mill’s ‘Dreams and nightmares’ hit.
The team sprinted onto the field charged up with energy and making a hostile environment their playground.
The song had become their playoff anthem. The Eagles burst onto the field with an infectious amount of energy. The song fit the personality of the team ready to punch a dynasty in the mouth.
