Eagles Fan Jake Tapper Hits New England: ‘The Patriots Are Cheaters… This Is Just a Fact’

‘They are a cheating team’

Eagles Fan Jake Tapper Shreds New England: ‘The Patriots Are Cheaters…This Is Just a Fact’ (Mediaite)

Following the New England Patriots come-from-behind 24-20 AFC Championship victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday afternoon, the Philadelphia Eagles absolutely decimated the Minnesota Vikings to take the NFC Championship. Despite being underdogs on their home field, Philly scored 38 unanswered points to destroy Minnesota by 31 points and head to their first Super Bowl in 13 years.

Now that we know the combatants in Super Bowl LII, it is time for the battle lines to be drawn. And one of the biggest Philly fans in the cable news universe — perhaps the biggest? — made sure CNN’s viewers knew just how he felt about his team’s opponent today.

Speaking to colleague Brooke Baldwin, anchor Jake Tapper noted that one of the Eagles executives had seen all of his “insane pro-Eagle tweets” recently and invited him to the game last night. Tapper explained that he was able to bring his father and they were able to walk onto the field, something he tweeted about earlier today.
