Thousands of Philadelphia Eagles fans stormed the streets to celebrate following their team's 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC championship game.

After the game, huge crowds gathered in neighborhoods around the city. There were no immediate reports of any problems.

Earlier in the day, workers who jokingly called themselves the "Crisco Cops" greased light poles to prevent fans from climbing them.
