LONSDALE, Minn. (KMSP) - Philadelphia Eagles 41, New England Patriots 33. Who could have predicted the final score of a record-breaking Super Bowl? Well, a small restaurant in the small town of Lonsdale, Minnesota perfectly predicted the score…with burgers.
Taste of Lonsdale held a Burger Battle in the week leading up to the Super Bowl. The New England burger is a maple-infused burger topped with bacon, grilled apple and cheddar. The Philly burger is stacked with cheesesteak ingredients like grilled peppers, onions, mushrooms and melty cheese.
Before you bark out a big, ‘YEAH RIGHT!’ there’s proof in Taste of Lonsdale’s Facebook feed. It was a tight battle all week, but on Saturday, Feb. 3, the Philly burger edged the New England burger 16 to 7. The final score of 41-33 was posted at 9:56 a.m. on Super Bowl Sunday – more than seven hours before kickoff.
