Eagles fans have travelled well this season. In fact, they travelled so well that a Buccaneers player and the Titans head coach pleaded for fans to attend their games so that Eagles fans couldn’t take over.
Obviously with the playoffs, it’s pretty much impossible for an away team to take over a home stadium. However, according to Vivid Seats, Eagles fans are still planning on showing up in big numbers.

The Mercedes-Benz Superdome seating capacity is 74,295, so if Vivid Seats’ projection comes true, that would mean roughly 13,400 of the crowd would be Eagles fans. Considering that the Saints are the #1 seed in the NFC, it’s amazing that Eagles fans are projected to take over about 1/5 of the stadium.
Will it be enough to make the Saints home-field advantage not as effective? We won’t know until kickoff.
