It wasn’t so sunny in Philadelphia last night. Not after their team lost to Kansas City 38-35 in the Big Game.

As soon as the game ended, throngs of fans took to police guarded streets in downtown Philly to jump on lamp posts, set off fireworks, scale the gates of city hall, and chant against the Kansas City victory. Earlier in the day Philly fans were even seen flipping over cars.

From BBC News, there were reports of looting and three people were arrested, according to a statement from Ajeenah Amir, a spokesman for Mayor Jim Kenney.

A lot of the frustration for the Philly faithful stemmed from a holding call on cornerback James Bradberry on a critical third and eight at the Philadelphia 15 with 1:54 to play. The penalty gave Kansas City a new set of downs and the ability to run the clock out before Harrison Butker kicked the game winning field goal with eight seconds to play.
