The Philadelphia Eagles have secured a spot in the Super Bowl after defeating the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championships.
After the win, Lincoln Financial Field set off an array of fireworks, lighting up the sky in honor of the birds.
Philadelphia police greased poles and set up barricades ahead of the game, but it proved no match for fans who gathered at Broad and Locust Streets in Center City.
Chants could be heard throughout the city, from the Linc to the Northeast, where SKYFOX saw crowds gathered in celebration of the champs.
After the game, fans rushed to Dick's Sporting Goods to grab NFC Championship gear, which sold out in some stores just hours after the game.
While no major incidents have been reported, Philadelphia police say several arrests were made as celebrations erupted across the city.
During the game, police say six arrests were made for illegal alcohol sales inside Lincoln Financial Field.
Five other arrests were made post-win, including one violation of firearms act and two each of assault on police and vandalism to city property. Police have not released any further information on these incidents.
Six code violation notices were also issued for disorderly conduct and alcoholic beverage.
