Super Bowl Sunday. That great American tradition of gathering around a super-sized television with your nearest and dearest to root for your favorite team (or just who you think will win) and watch some of the best commercials to be aired all year.
And of course, this celebrated occasion is accompanied with a wide array of food. In honor of this tradition, Popcorn Friday is rolling out some flavors to help you celebrate the gridiron battle between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots in the NFL’s Super Bowl LII (that’s 52 for those, like me, that aren’t up on their Roman numerals).
Representing the NFC, the Eagles were established in Philly in 1933, and have competed in the Super Bowl twice, but have yet to claim victory. This year, the Eagles entered the playoffs with a 13-3 win/loss record, securing the #1 seed in the playoffs; however, football fans and commentators alike questioned their ability to go all the way. With their starting quarterback, Carson Wentz, injured halfway through the regular season, the Eagles have battled their way to the Big Game with backup quarterback, Nick Foles, at the helm and Coach Doug Pederson leading the way. The Eagles are touted to be the underdogs this year, but will they prove the naysayers wrong?

New England Patriots
Representing the AFC, the New England Patriots were an original member of the American Football League, and joined the NFL during the merger of the AFL and NFL in 1970. Their home stadium, located in Foxborough, MA, is located halfway between Boston, MA and Providence, RI, making them the recognized team representing New England. The Patriots have competed in 9 Super Bowl Championships, and have won five, all of those with Tom Brady as the starting quarterback, who now holds the record for quarterback with the Most Super Bowl wins. The Patriots ended the regular season this year with a 13-3 win/loss record, securing their #1 seed spot in the playoffs; however, unlike their counterparts, the Eagles, the Patriots have been favored to not only make it to the championship game, but they are favored to win. If they win Super Bowl LII, the Patriots will tie the Pittsburgh Steelers for Most Super Bowl wins in the NFL.
