Video: Riots break out in Philly after Eagles win, awning full of fans collapses – imagine if they’d lost

You think your Super Bowl party was wild? Try literally making a roof break down.

A collapsed awning at Philadelphia’s Ritz-Carlton was least among the mayhem unleashed upon the city as Eagles fans celebrated their team’s stunning 41-33 victory against the New England Patriots at Sunday night’s Super Bowl LII.

Thousands reveled in the Eagles’ first Super Bowl win by destroying public property. The Ritz-Carlon awning collapsed after repeatedly being used as a make-shift trampoline by fans.

Others channeled their inner aggression with windows, street signs, and public plant pots.

Before the festivities began, police greased poles throughout the city–but that didn’t stop Eagles fans from climbing every pole or high surface they could find.

One fan took things to the extreme, eating horse excrement live on camera.

Amid all the chaos, only three people were arrested, according to ABC 6.

Sunday night’s Super Bowl was a huge victory for the Eagles, who were considered the match-up’s underdogs.
