A group of visiting Minnesota Vikings fans let the city of Philadelphia known they aren't afraid of the Eagles by donning one of the city's most known attraction in purple and gold.
Hours ahead of the NFC Championship Game at the Linc, Vikings fans gathered on the steps of the Art Museum of Philadelphia, where they performed their relatively new “skol chant.”

But what some Eagles fans may see as even more insulting, the Minnesota faithful also dressed the iconic Rocky Statue in purple and gold Vikings gear.
A photo of the statue appeared on Twitter, with the caption "This is our city now #STOW."

Eagles fans were quick to respond on social media.
