Field for each and every home game. Each site has played host to memorable and historic moments in franchise history.
The 1960 NFL Championship victory over the Green Bay Packers took place at Franklin Field. Wilbert Montgomery’s 42-yard
touchdown run set the tone for the 1980 NFC Championship Game win over Dallas at Veterans Stadium. Twenty-four years
later, Lincoln Financial Field was the site for the franchise’s second NFC crown as tight end Chad Lewis hauled in a pair of
touchdown receptions to send the Eagles back to the Super Bowl with a thrilling defeat of the Atlanta Falcons. On January
21, 2018, the Eagles routed the Minnesota Vikings 38-7 to win their third NFC Championship on the way to the franchise’s
first Super Bowl triumph.
