PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) - Philadelphia Eagles fans are going to be talking about this one for a while. In the final seconds of a crazy playoff game, and a missed Bears’ field goal, fans could hardly contain their excitement.  

It was a good night indeed for Alex Seidel, and all of the Eagles fans at Paddy Whacks Irish Sports Pub who watched the Birds slip past the Bears in a nail-biter.

"Everyone was nervous, we thought it was over,” he said. “But then the magic happened, baby! He missed it!"

Janelle Nemetz was the first person we found, after that missed kick, willing to take a celebration break to talk with us.

"Amazing, it's amazing. It shows the Philadelphia spirit," she said.

Reporter: What happened in this place when he missed the field goal?

"It was just energy, it exploded the roof,” she said. “We just knew it, we knew it."

We asked fans their predictions for next week, but they didn't want to talk about the Saints right now, they just wanted to savor this incredible victory.
