The Philadelphia Eagles cruised to an easy win in the NFC Championship game and both fans and players took the opportunity to openly mock their Minnesota Vikings opponents.
The Eagles scored a touchdown early in the fourth quarter to push their lead to a resounding 38-7. Just prior to the ensuing kickoff, the Eagles players and their fans mocked the Vikings' own "Skol" chant, which includes a slow clap above their heads in unison.
According to the Fox broadcast, the fans replaced "Skol" with "Foles," in honor of their now-starting quarterback Nick Foles.
