PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Philadelphia Eagles fans filled the parking lots at the stadiums in South Philadelphia Sunday, excited to have their favorite team back in town.

Corey Salmon and his friends brought an oven and cooked up homemade pizza, carbo-loading before a long day of tailgating.

"This is actually the first go at it so I think we're doing a good job. It was a hobby during the COVID action and it turned into a tailgate thing," said Salmon.

The fans are keeping the energy up after a tough loss to Dallas last week.

"They still suck. Dallas sucks," said Mark Fordham from South Philadelphia. "Going to this game because we had such a bad loss. I think we have something we have to prove."

The Chiefs were in the Super Bowl last year and you don't have to tell Eagles fans how good of a coach Andy Reid is.

"You know what? This is Philadelphia and he is home. Our home. His ex-home. You know what? We're gonna do it," predicted Fordham.

The Birds were not able to come out with the win, falling to the Chiefs 42-30.

The Eagles, who sit at 1-3 on the season, will face the Panthers Sunday at 1 p.m.
