The city of Philadelphia went crazy on Sunday night. This should come as a surprise to no one, of course.

The city's beloved Eagles blew out the Vikings in the NFC Championship Game. Philadelphia moves on to the Super Bowl, where it'll attempt to win it for the first time.

After the game, countless photos and videos of the celebrations went viral. There were people climbing greased-up polls. People were driving around with guys on top of their cars. Some dude ran into a subway pole.

There were probably a ton of celebration-related arrests made in Philadelphia last night, right? Shockingly, no.

TMZ Sports reports that there were six arrests made over the course of the day. From their report:

There was blood before the game ... and fires afterward -- but the Philadelphia PD tells us only 6 PEOPLE were arrested on Sunday in connection to the NFC Championship madness.

One person was arrested for assault on a police officer -- we're told the incident took place in the parking lot at Lincoln Financial Field before the game.

2 more people were arrested for disorderly conduct -- and 3 others were busted for counterfeit ticket sales.

Good for you, Philly. (Good for Philadelphia Police, too.)
