Seven years ago, in a home game against the Minnesota Vikings on Oct. 23, 2016, Josh Huff returned a kickoff 98 yards for a second-quarter touchdown that propelled the Philadelphia Eagles to a 21-10 victory.
It was the last time the Eagles returned either a kickoff or punt for a touchdown at home.
The law of averages — special-teams touchdowns are rare in football, but not that rare — suggests the Eagles are due to return a kickoff or punt for a touchdown in front of their home fans. And when they do, someone is going to hit the jackpot.
As part of a promotion called Take It to the House Presented by Firstrust Bank, the official bank of the Philadelphia Eagles will pay off one lucky winner’s mortgage, up to $150,000. The Eagles will make their home debut on Thursday, Sept. 14 against — perhaps serendipitously — the Vikings.

Since forging their partnership in 2020, Firstrust Bank, the region’s largest family-owned financial institution, and the Eagles, one of the most valuable sports franchises in the world, have created synergies that extend both of their reaches and impact within the community.
