Eagles Fans Riot In Philadelphia Streets After Brutal Super Bowl Loss To Kansas City Chiefs

Philadelphia, PA – Outraged and disappointed Philadelphia Eagles fans rioted in the streets after their team lost to the Kansas City Chiefs in the last minutes of Super Bowl LVII on Sunday night.

Videos from the chaos that ensued on the streets of Philadelphia showed Eagles fans screaming “F—k the Chiefs,” jumping atop bus shelters, and lighting off fireworks indiscriminately in the streets, the New York Post reported.

On Broad Street, fans climbed light poles and chanted obscenities in the wake of their team’s 38-to-35 loss.

Dozens of police officers in riot gear took to the streets to try to quell the mayhem before the destruction of property got out of control.

Numerous orders to disperse were given to the crowd before law enforcement officers engaged to clear the streets, the New York Post reported.

Rioters threw bottles and other projectiles at the officers as they stood waiting for the crowd to leave.

There were also altercations between Eagles fans in the streets, not just with police.

Philadelphia police began deploying smoke bombs in the area at about 11 p.m. on Feb 12 in an effort to clear the streets.

Some residents who posted about the chaos in the streets appeared to be non-plussed by the riotous behavior of the National Football League (NFL) fans.

Eagles fans have been known for their bad behavior whether they win or lose.

Multiple arrests were made in the bruhaha but Philadelphia police have not released any information yet about the number in custody or the charges they faced, the New York Post reported.
