PHILADELPHIA—Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen won't be going to the Super Bowl as a player. That was decided Sunday night, Jan. 21, when the Eagles demolished the Vikings 38-7 in the NFC Championship Game. Even though Super Bowl LII will be played at US Bank Stadium in his home state of Minnesota, Thielen won't be going as a spectator, either. That was decided Sunday night, too. "I'll watch it, but at this point, there is no need for me to go," Thielen said. When he attends a Super Bowl, he wants it to be as a player.
