PHILADELPHIA — Philadelphia Eagles fans are bursting with excitement and anticipation of Saturday night's game. But the police and stadium security are hoping they'll channel that energy properly during the game or else.

"Unruly, rude, threatening behavior, it's simply not going to be tolerated and you're going to be ejected from the stadium or arrested," Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Joe Sullivan told Action News Thursday.

During the last home game against Chicago, 15 fans were arrested and 68 were ejected. The police have a lot of eyes and ears in the stadium and some will be in disguise. They'll be wearing New Orleans Saints jerseys and hats. So, be careful who you pick on.
