On Sunday night, the Eagles defeated Tom Brady and the New England Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl LII, one of the highest-scoring Super Bowl games ever played.

Fireworks were also launched in the streets and cars were flipped amidst the revelry. The city is proud, and the victory parade is scheduled for some time.

This is the first Super Bowl trophy for the Eagles after two failed attempts in the past.

Over at the Ritz Carlton, people climbed on top of the awning and awning actually collapsed.


Ajeenah Amir, a spokeswoman for Philadelphia's mayor Jim Kenney, said in a statement: "Tens of thousands came out and celebrated this fantastic victory last night, and but for a handful of bad actors the celebration was peaceful and jubilant. Be happy we won and keep moving", said Dee Moses. "It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience". She praised the police for "their assistance in getting the crowds dispersed and people home safely". Officials in the western MA town said those transported to hospitals suffered from head injuries, lacerations and alcohol intoxication. Police say those arrested face criminal charges, and students would face punishment under the student code of conduct.

Police had already anticipated trouble, they greased street lamps with hydraulic fluid beforehand to prevent fans from trying to climb them.

"We know you have waited years, some for decades, for the chance to crown your Birds as champs", Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney said in a statement. "Go forth and celebrate, but do so in a way that will make Philadelphia shine".
