Philadelphia Eagles long snapper Rick Lovato said the team did a fake walkthrough in Minneapolis one day ahead of Super Bowl LII in the event the New England Patriots were spying on their practice.

“I believe our whole walkthroughwas just a complete fake walkthrough,” Lovato said on 620 WDAE in Tampa (h/t Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk). “We did it at the stadium. There were certain people walking around…I believe I overheard someone say a lot of the plays we were running weren’t even in the playbook for the Super Bowl.”
