The Philadelphia Eagles worked hard this past season to earn home-field advantage for the playoffs. Though, they are considered the underdog to the visiting Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship Game.
Because of the underdog label, tackle Lane Johnson created this “Home Dogs” custom T-shirt. The cool thing is that all proceeds from the t-shirt sales will go to help fund local schools.

Might we see some fans actually wearing this T-shirt? That is very likely. Those folks might even be joined by fans who are also wearing dog masks to the upcoming game (more on that here.)
The Eagles are clearly taking their underdog situation and turning it into fuel to tango with the Vikings. Johnson made that clear following Saturday’s playoff win over Atlanta.
This will definitely be a game for the history books. The Eagles have not competed in a conference championship game since 2008. Minnesota last appeared in the NFC Championship Game back in 2009.
