Former NFL star Arian Foster announced recently that the NFL is “scripted” causing the NFL Internet fandom to run with a joke about the NFL being scripted. Players and fans alike got in on the joke, picking fun at reading their scripts from the sport’s most iconic moments – good and bad.
The jokes don’t slow down for the Super Bowl, and at least two scripts were “leaked” in favor of the Eagles winning it all on Sunday.
Here’s how two scripts play out: one is plausible, the other not-so-much.
Eagles Win, 37-34
A very likely score as the Eagles averaged 30 points throughout their playoff run. The Chiefs look to start off hot in this game, coming out to an early lead. After a momentum shift, the Eagles come fighting back and take control of the game in the second half. If I had to guess, it would be DeVonta Smith or Miles Sanders who kicks off the Eagles steady comeback en route to a victory.
It’s definitely a nail-biting 3 and a half hour game of both teams. Better take the point total over!

Eagles Win by…720 points
This is not a feasible script because Goodell is not going to have the Chiefs go into a deficit in the fourth quarter. They’re going to want to keep the game close for ratings. However, if the Eagles manage to get 102 touchdowns in 15 minutes, that would be some Super Bowl story. Let’s talk about how this game goes on for 7 hours and 31 minutes. Is that where the large fourth-quarter action happens?
Also, a record-breaking only 27 people in attendance is insane. I’m sure head coaches “Riley Reed” and Nick Sirianni will have to adjust to the lack of fan noise.
