Rowdy Eagles Fans Are Already Causing Havoc Hours Before NFC Championship Game
iT’S going to be a long day for Philadelphia Police who are trying to keep order in the city before and after today’s NFC championship game between the Eagles and the Vikings.
Hours before the big game, a massive fight broke out between Eagles fans and police outside of the Linc according NJ.com
A massive fight that left at least one fan bloodied and created chaos in the parking lots of Lincoln Financial Field broke out on Sunday just hours before kickoff between the Eagles and Minnesota Vikings.
It is not clear at this point what started the fight, which took place around 3 p.m. EST in Lot M by the Eagles’ home stadium. The brawl got so out of control that six horses were called to the scene in an attempt to control the crowd.
The fight was between Eagles’ fans and the police officers, and it doesn’t appear any Vikings’ fans were involved. The incident, which required Philadelphia police officers and Pennsylvania State troopers to get under control, left at least one fan beaten and blooded.
This incident involving Eagles fans comes a few days after Phildalephia police warned businesses that they were preparing for rowdy fans to destroy the city.
