"It just gets us going. It gives us good energy. Just a little extra juice."
When the Philadelphia Eagles are introduced at U.S. Bank Stadium this Sunday, Meek Mill's "Dreams and Nightmares" will be blaring from the speakers. The Eagles have adopted Meek's track as their anthem during their run to Super Bowl LII and it's only right that they continue to represent the Philadelphia-native this Sunday.
According to NFL.com, Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham confirmed that the team will take the field to Dreams and Nightmares at Super Bowl LII, saying, "If you're going to go with a Philly song, that's the one you're going with." Eagles rookie defensive end, Derek Barnett, added, "Meek, you know, he's locked up right now, so we have to hold the city down for him." He says of the song, "It just gets us going. It gives us good energy. Just a little extra juice."
Last week, Meek released a statement regarding his song being the unofficial playoff anthem of his hometown team, saying it "really lifted my spirit to hear the team rallying around my songs."
Super Bowl LII will take place at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota on Sunday, February 4th. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30pm ET, airing on NBC. The spread is subject to vary slightly over the course of the next two weeks, but as of now the Patriots are favored by 4 points over the Eagles. The over/under point total is currently set at 48.5 points.
No word on what song the Patriots will be coming out to as of now.
