A.J. Brown: 'I pretty much think it's going to be a circus'

There is still a week to go before the Super Bowl and wide receiver A.J. Brown plans to maximize every minute of that time preparing for the game mentally and physically. He's treating it like every other week, but he thinks he has an idea of what it's going to be like when the Eagles arrive in Arizona - they leave from Philadelphia late Sunday morning.

"I pretty much think it's going to be a circus, to be honest with you," he said, laughing. "So much going on, you've just got to lock in and keep the main thing, the main thing. We're going out there to get ready for a football game. I've told my marketing people, who ask me to do this, to do that, I'm like, 'No. I'm there to play football.'"

Players have an opportunity to make appearances while in Arizona, do autograph sessions, and make as many media sessions as they can handle. Brown isn't biting.

"I'm going to be at my best for the Super Bowl - going to be with my team, practice great every day, get my body right, and when my family comes in, spend some time with them and then go play," he said. "I'm going to chill when I can, and then focus. We're there to win the game, to keep the main thing, the main thing.

"I'm a football player. Somebody told me it will be the biggest game of my life and it will be. But I'm going to treat it like every other game and stay locked in and go out and play my best football."
