Anthony Richardson taunts Eagles fans with 'Fly Eagles Fly' celebration
Anthony Richardson and the Indianapolis Colts are at Lincoln Financial Field on Thursday as they wrap up their 2023 preseason against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Richardson has made an instant impression on the Colts and 1st-year head coach Shane Steichen during his first NFL training camp, so much so that he was named the team’s Week 1 starter on Aug. 15 — just days after their preseason opener against the Buffalo Bills.
Philadelphia, of course, is home to a notoriously ruthless fanbase. But that didn’t stop Richardson from hitting Eagles fans with a little taunting. With his team trailing 7-0 in the 1st quarter, he went 2-of-2 for 36 yards and broke off a 6-yard run, later seeing the drive capped by three straight Deon Jackson runs to make it 7-7 after the extra point.
Take a look at what Richardson did below:

He’s played just three preseason games in his NFL career, but Richardson has already gotten on the bad side of Eagles fans. He won’t face them in the regular season, but it’s safe to assume they won’t forget about him anytime soon.
