With the Eagles holding a comfortable lead over the Vikings in the second half of the NFC championship, the home crowd at Lincoln Financial Field started looking forward to their team’s next opponent.

A resounding “We want Brady!” chant broke out during the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game after quarterback Tom Brady led the Patriots to a thrilling 24-20 victory just a few hours earlier.

Philadelphia’s fanbase is likely hoping their eagerness is not met with the same result as that of Jacksonville in the AFC championship game.
