Die-Hard Eagles Fans Share Their Game Day Superstitions

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- If you're an Eagles fan, you know there's a lot riding on Sunday's game.

"Yeah, I'm nervous because they've got a lot to prove," said Kyera Sharper of North Philly.

And if you're a die-hard, you'll do whatever it takes to get that win.

"I have an Eagles hat," said Will Flynn of South Philly.

"And when we start playing bad, I turn it forward."

"I have a hairless cat named Carlos and I watch the game with him," said Liz Bales of Chestnut Hill.

"Because the Eagles are going to win baby!"
