Super Bowl media week can be entertaining for the fans but for the players, it has to get extremely boring answering the same questions over and over again.
On Monday, USA Today Sports decided to get creative by pranking some of the players from the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots. The prank itself involved asking the players, including former Detroit Lions and current Patriots linebacker Kyle Van Noy about their thoughts about having to play with the roof open at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota because of some malfunctions.
Some of the players just brushed it off like it would be no big deal, but others, including Van Noy, did not seem to want any part of playing in the cold temperatures.
Check it out.
We told players that the roof of U.S. Bank Stadium would be open on Super Bowl night. It was a joke!

According to The Weather Channel, the high on Super Bowl Sunday will be 10 degrees while the low will be zero. I don't care how tough you are, I can guarantee that every one of those players would prefer to play with the roof closed.
Future Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia’s reason for beard is perfect
The Super Bowl is less than a week away which means the Detroit Lions are also a week away from being able to officially name current New England Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia as their next head coach.
Though Patricia gets plenty of attention for the job his has done with the Patriots defense, and rightfully so, there is something else about him that seems to be getting a ton of attention from Lions fans.
His epic beard.
Patricia did not decide to grow a beard to look more manly or to look like a lumberjack, but instead to honor a group of people. On Super Bowl opening night in Minneapolis, the Patriots defensive coordinator talked about what inspired his beard.
