- This episode takes place on Saturday, February 3, 2018. It started on Saturday for them to travel to Minneapolis where the Super Bowl took place. The rest of the episode when they are at the game must have been on Sunday, February 4, because all Super Bowls are on Sundays.
- "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor replaces the standard theme song for this episode. "Eye of the Tiger" has been loosely associated with Philadelphia since it's use in Rocky 3.
- Dennis does not appear in this episode, despite Glenn Howerton being credited in the opening credits.
- Dee wandering through the service area's of the stadium is a reference to Mr. Magoo.
- Several real-life reactions to the Eagles' Super Bowl win were featured at the conclusion of this episode. In addition, the credits included footage of Rob McElhenney and Kaitlin Olson at the actual game, with Kaitlin recording.
- This episode serves as a continuation of "Charlie's Home Alone", but it comes from the gang's perpective this time.
- The Invigaron pyramid scheme from "Mac and Dennis Buy a Timeshare" is mentioned by Rex.
- The Waiter previously mentioned how he served the gang at the Super Bowl in "The Gang Beats Boggs: Ladies Reboot", which is shown to be true in this episode. And, as is tradition, the gang insists they have never met him before.
- Uncle Jack's fake hands from "McPoyle vs. Ponderosa: The Trial of the Century", reappear in this episode.
- Continuity error: Ben is seen wearing his full camouflage uniform when he leaves the box, but has mysteriously switched the pants out for his beloved jean shorts by the time the veteran honoring segment during the game is shown.
