Philadelphia police say few arrests have been made amid celebrations following the Eagles’ NFC championship game victory.
The arrests came as thousands of fans took to the streets following the Eagles’ 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night. The Eagles advanced to their first Super Bowl since 2005 Authentic Troy Apke Jersey , against the AFC champion New England Patriots.
After Sunday’s game, huge crowds gathered around the city.
Police say one man is accused of punching a police horse and a mounted officer who was trying to disperse a crowd in a stadium parking lot before the game.
Police also reported two arrests for disorderly conduct and three arrests for counterfeit ticket sales.
Earlier in the day, workers who jokingly called themselves the ”Crisco Cops” greased light poles to prevent fans from climbing them.
Hannah Foslien/Getty ImagesThe 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame game between the Chicago Bears and Baltimore Ravens聽takes place on Thursday at 8 p.m. at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio. NBC will televise the NFL's preseason opener.The Ravens are coming off a 9-7 campaign in which they just missed out on the playoffs following a heartbreaking loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in the regular-season finale.The Bears struggled, though, and finished 5-11. Head coach John Fox was relieved of his duties, and Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy took the reins.Chicago is the more interesting team of note here given the coaching change and some offseason additions that could make the Bears a dark-horse playoff contender. Here's a look at three members of that team to watch on Thursday.聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽Chicago Bears QB Mitchell TrubiskyThe second overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft, quarterback Mitchell Trubisky started 12 games last year Authentic Ronald Jones II Jersey , completing 59.4 percent of his passes and tossing seven touchdowns to seven interceptions. He also rushed for 248 yards and two touchdowns.Although his statistics aren't eye-popping, he wasn't asked to do a whole lot in a conservative, run-first offense (of note, the former University of North Carolina star threw 16 or fewer passes three times). In a new regime under Nagy, Trubisky could have more freedom.Per Madeline Kenney of the Chicago Sun-Times, Bears offensive guard Kyle Long said the "training wheels" are off for Trubisky:Madeline Kenney @madkenneyAsked @Ky1eLong how @Mtrubisky10 has grown this offseason (besides the scruff): "My little boy is becoming a man. Mitch鈥攖hey've taken the training wheels off of Mitch's little bike. So he going to be able to do some things creatively and get to showcase his skills."The issue right now is that Trubisky聽has had trouble with interceptions in training camp. That being said, Nagy doesn't seem too concerned, per Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic:Kevin Fishbain @kfishbainMatt Nagy on Mitch Trubisky鈥檚 interceptions in camp: "Right now Youth Jeremiah Attaochu Jersey , I don't care about interceptions. I truly don't. I love the fact that he's trying to learn this offense and make throws. I'd rather him do that than take the five-yard check-down. I need him to test it right now."Regardless, it will be interesting to see if the 23-year-old can shake off the turnovers and have a strong opening performance in Canton.聽 聽 聽聽 聽 聽Chicago Bears WR Anthony MillerOne reason to be excited about Trubisky's development is rookie wide receiver Anthony Miller, who has been impressive thus far.A second-round pick, Miller caught 191 passes and hauled in 32 touchdowns during his final two seasons at the University of Memphis.He's listed behind Allen Robinson and Taylor Gabriel on the Bears' depth chart right now, but the 23-year-old should receive plenty of snaps if his stock continues to rise.In fact, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune believes Miller could be the No. 1 slot receiver:Rich Campbell @Rich_CampbellTwo TDs (1 rec, 1 rush) for Anthony Miller this morning and another catch that he snatched off the back of CB Marcus Cooper's head. Great day for the second-round pick, who will have every chance to be the Bears SWR1. https://t.co/eRmIOjnUNnHe has received much praise from analysts and reporters. Former Cleveland Browns general manager Phil Savage raved about Miller after watching him in training camp:Phil Savage @PhilSavageBased on what I saw today @ChicagoBears camp Authentic M.J. Stewart Jersey , @MemphisFB WR @AnthonyMiller_3 is going to be an immediate contributor as a rookie! Arguably, the best player on the field this morning. Super quick, sticky hands and production usually adds up to #NFL success.Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times noted Miller has been racking up the highlights, including a touchdown against starting cornerback Kyle Fuller:Adam Jahns @adamjahnsAnother #Bears practice, another Anthony Miller highlight. He beat Kyle Fuller and Mitch Trubisky hit him in stride for a long TD.Of course, training-camp success doesn't always equate to regular-season accolades, but Miller has earned A-plus marks so far.聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽Chicago Bears WR Allen RobinsonDrafted out of Penn State by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2014, wide receiver Allen Robinson had a breakout year in 2015 Jay Buhner Seattle Mariners Jersey , hauling in 80 passes for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns.Like the rest of the Jags offense, he had a down year in 2016 but looked to bounce back strong in 2017. Unfortunately, though, a torn ACL suffered in Week 1 ended his season.Robinson parted ways with the Jags in free agency and signed a deal with the Chicago Bears to be their No. 1 wide receiver. The 6'3", 211-pound wideout will only be 25 years old when the season begins, and if he looks anything close to the player he was in 2015, the Bears got a steal.Although Robinson has participated in training camp Cheap Robert Griffin III Jersey , it will be interesting to see how he fares once the games begin. It's not impossible to miss an entire year with an ACL injury and bounce back strong: Los Angeles Chargers wideout Keenan Allen just did so in 2017, catching 102 passes for 1,393 yards and six scores.Keep an eye on the former PSU star as he gets back into the game flow..
