The raucous crowd began booing James as he appeared on screen, and in response, the Los Angeles Lakers superstar placed an imaginary crown on his head.

Eagles fans were in the stadium in full force and their presence was felt before and during the game. Fans were seen taunting Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce before kickoff and booing Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, who was receiving the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.
