Whatever you see in U.S. Bank Stadium—a Viking warship, a shard of ice—the home of Super Bowl LII says something not just about Minnesota, but also about the future of NFL abodes.
U.S. Bank Stadium’s end zones have gone blue, red, white and green for the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles.
In 2013, the Vikings went 5-10-1, started three different quarterbacks and had the worst-scoring defense in football. Five months after that season ended, the NFL announced that Super Bowl LII would be played in Minnesota’s new $1.1 billion stadium in February 2018.
As the Rams prepared to land at LAX after beating the Tennessee Titans in Nashville on Christmas Eve, Kevin Demoff looked out the right side of the plane above Inglewood.
The Super Bowl is officially 33 days away, and the NFL has taken over at US Bank Stadium. But, the Vikings playoff run is putting a wrinkle in the preparations.
