Eagles Held Fake Walk-Through Practice Before Super Bowl In Case Patriots Were Spying

With a Super Bowl on the line, the Philadelphia Eagles knew the opponent would pull out all the stops, and with the Patriots being that opponent, they did all they could to combat any cheating.

According to Bleacher Report, Eagles long snapper Rick Lovato said the team actually took the time to hold a fake walkthrough in U.S. Bank Stadium the day before Super Bowl LII just in case the New England Patriots were spying on their practice.

“I believe our whole walkthrough was just a complete fake walkthrough,” Lovato said on 620 WDAE in Tampa (h/t Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk). “We did it at the stadium. There were certain people walking around…I believe I overheard someone say a lot of the plays we were running weren’t even in the playbook for the Super Bowl.”
