The Super Bowl concluded last night, as the Kansas City Chiefs squared off against The Philadelphia Eagles, in what was a highly-anticipated game. Everyone believed Patrick Mahomes would lead the team to victory. That is exactly what happened and it seems Eagles fans took out their frustration on the streets.
Heading into the Super Bowl, the Eagles and the Chiefs were evenly matched with a similar win/loss record as well. The final whistle also reflects just how even both teams were as the Chiefs won the 2023 Super Bowl 38-35 by clinching the game at the last second.
In the end, the Chiefs won the game. As revealed by footage obtained by TMZ, Philadelphia Eagles fans took to the streets in Philadelphia and expressed their anger over the Super Bowl results. This included them using chants like, “F**k the Chiefs,” among other harsh words.
On top of their chants, they were also climbing light poles and bus stop stands and generally being rowdy. The major reason why people were angry is due to the fact that they felt the game was one-sided, especially toward the end of the game, where Patrick Mahomes was on a drive to win the game, with one crucial play going for the Chiefs.
James Bradberry, a talented Eagles cornerback, was penalized for holding KC’s star wide receiver, JuJu Smith-Schuster, during a crucial moment in the game. Despite the belief of many in Philadelphia that the contact was accidental, and that Mahomes’ pass appeared uncatchable, the flag was thrown nonetheless.
This decision by the officials ultimately proved decisive, as it allowed the Chiefs to run down the clock and secure a field goal, leaving the Eagles with very little opportunity to mount a comeback. Fans were irate both inside their homes as well as outside, so that is unlikely to change anytime soon.
