Probably for the best, there wasn't really any bulletin board material that came out of Super Bowl LII Opening Night, which included three hours of media availability between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots. That doesn't mean there wasn't anything interesting said at media night, however.
Eagles defensive end Chris Long told NFL Media's Steve Smith Sr. that he made a bet with the team's linebackers coach, Ken Flajole, that he would get a portrait of him tattooed on him if the Eagles won the Super Bowl:

For those unaware, this is what the 63-year-old Flajole, who was once Long's defensive coordinator in St. Louis, looks like:

It's unclear exactly when this bet was made, though you get the sense that Long probably didn't agree to it this week. Long also didn't say specifically where the tattoo would go, though he seemed to gesture to to his left arm. Long already has sleeves on both of his arms, so it's hard to know if he has room for a portrait on either of his arms.
Long, who won Super Bowl LI as a member of the Patriots, did make headlines for other reasons Monday. During an appearance on Pardon My Take, Long said that he doesn't appear to visit the White House if the Eagles do win the Super Bowl. This would be the second consecutive year that Long passed on a chance to visit the White House.
