Fans of the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, January 21, celebrated their team’s victory over the Minnesota Vikings. The win earned the Eagles a place in this year’s Super Bowl final. This video shows fans, some wearing Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz’s jersey, cheering on Broad Street. A man can be seen scaling a lamp post despite attempts by the police to prevent fans climbing by slathering street poles in grease. Police conducted extra patrols and set up barricades on Broad Street in anticipation of the crowd, Fox News reported. Philadelphia’s mayor Jim Kenney called on football fans to celebrate "with the same pride in our City that the players have shown throughout this astonishing season,” CBS quoted a statement. The Eagles will face defending champion New England Patriots in Minneapolis on February 4. Credit: Twitter/groovyytonyy via Storyful
