For much of the country, there is a collective exasperation with the NFC East in general. The league prominently displays games featuring the Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants and Washington Redskins in national time slots and, while there is usually some level of intrigue, it is no secret that fans outside of those markets (and the East Coast in general) get relatively sick of seeing the same squads.

However, there is real animosity and rivalry between those four teams and that manifested itself on Monday evening. The Philadelphia Eagles were led by Carson Wentz and an explosive offense to a win over Washington and, while that was not a shocking result, one touchdown from the losing side produced real reaction.

In short, Washington running back Chris Thompson scored and attempted to hand the ball to a young Eagles fan in the front row. Hilarity ensued.

Yes, that is an Eagles fan absolutely dead-panning while being handed (literally) the opportunity to have a lifetime souvenir from an NFL game. In some ways, it is highly admirable and the tweet above suggests season tickets for life from an Eagles perspective. In some others, it might be an instance of loyalty crossing the line and, well, leading to an irrational decision.

Regardless, the people of Philadelphia will love this youngster forever.
