Cool moment from the crowd.

As you may imagine, Lincoln Financial Field was rockin’ on Sunday afternoon. The Philadelphia Eagles were blowing out the Arizona Cardinals and life was good.

The crowd was super into the game. Standing ovations for the Eagles after each quarter. Battling sections doing the “E-A-G-L-E-S, EAGLES!” chant to see who can do it louder.

And then there were was a cool moment when the team played Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down” during a commercial break and all the Eagles fans in the Linc sang along.
