Vikings fans disappointed by loss to Eagles

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Minnesota Vikings fans had high hopes for Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

"This season has been amazing. It's been unlike anything I've seen from the Vikings," said Spencer Kopp.

Kopp goes to school in Eau Claire, but said he's always been a Vikings fan.

"All my life. I was born and raised in the Minneapolis area," said Kopp.

He said it can be tough being a Vikings fan in Packers country.

"It's hard sometimes, but you know if you really love your team, you power through," said Kopp.

Some Packers fans at Bug-Eyed Betty's were not hoping for a Vikings victory Sunday.

"So, are you here cheering against the Vikings, I take it? You know it. They went far enough," said Dave Kirby.

And this is as far as the Vikings will go, losing to the Eagles and not playing at home in the Super Bowl in February.

At Milwaukee Burger Company, fans started clearing out before the end of the game.

"They're getting emotional," said Lily Salzwedel.

Salzwedel said there were quite a few Eagles fans or non-Vikings fans cheering.

"So that made it interesting because every time they cheered, we're like yeah Vikings got a touchdown. No, it was more of the Eagles fans cheering," said Salzwedel.

True Vikings fans said this is a tough loss but...

"Skol Vikings. They'll always be my team," said Spencer Kopp.
