Chargers will win Super Bowl XLVIII, according to Eagles schedule
For the past four seasons, the Philadelphia Eagles home opener has been played against the eventual Super Bowl champion. The Eagles home opener this year: the San Diego Chargers.
What's the law you ask?
Since 2009, the team that Philadelphia plays in its home opener has gone on to win the Super Bowl. Seriously -- and here's a refresher, just in case you need it.
So will the weirdest law in football history hold up for another season? Will the Chargers win the Super Bowl? At least one person thinks so: Chargers safety Eric Weddle.
Before the schedule was released, Weddle said that he thought San Diego was the NFL's top team, "I feel like we're the best team in the league," Weddle said. "We're not here to win the AFC West here and there. We want to win a Super Bowl."
For some reason, Vegas isn't buying into this 'Eagles home opener' hype. Bovada currently has the Chargers at 40-to-1 odds to win Super Bowl XLVIII, a far cry from the 6-to-1 odds being given to the 49ers. The Eagles themselves are listed at 30-to-1.
