Eagles are allowing fans to wear dog masks to the NFC Championship Game against Vikings

This is so weird and so great.

Sunday’s NFC Championship Game between the Eagles and Vikings is going to be quite the sight to see. And not just because of the game itself.

Based on how those dog masks worn by Lane Johnson and Chris Long after the Eagles’ win over the Falcons are selling out everywhere online, there are going to be a lot of fans wearing them in the stands.

The Eagles announced fans will indeed be allowed to wear them inside the stadium.

This is just another example of why Eagles fans are so great. They rally around their team like no other. Two players wore dog masks after a game and now the entire stadium will be filled with them.

And it’s not like the Eagles are giving these things away. And it’s not like the masks are easy to get given how they’re selling out everywhere.

But Eagles fans will find a way. They’re embracing the underdog role just like the team is.

I wrote last week that it’s not just the team that’s being disrespected. It’s really the fans, too, because they think you guys won’t have big enough of an impact on the game to make a difference.

Eagles fans already proved the doubters wrong once last Saturday. But now the Birds are underdogs once again. Time for a repeat performance.

Note: The dog masks are selling out, but there are still plenty of Philadelphia Underdogs shirts available. You just need to ORDER TODAY to make sure you get yours in time for Sunday’s game.
