Video: Eagles fan tries to jump in tunnel after loss to Seahawks

Footballs are line-up on the field before an NFL football game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Philadelphia Eagles, Sunday, Dec. 3, 2017, in Seattle.

It's hard to imagine what was going on in the mind of this Eagles fan who was in attendance to see his team lose to the Seahawks in Seattle. Dressed in a Carson Wentz jersey, maybe he wanted to go console a team that fell flat in prime time after nine straight wins. Maybe he wanted to yell at head coach Doug Pederson for some head-scratching decisions in the 24-10 defeat.

Or, maybe, he shoved a Seahawks fan who was booing the Eagles as they left the field, and when a security guard approached him from behind, he decided the only way to escape the situation was to hop over the barrier in front of him and into the tunnel.

That's what appears to have happened, as NBC Sports Philadelphia reporter John Clark's video of the incident shows. His attempt was a failure, as security workers were able to stop him.

In terms of dumb fan behavior, he gets points for creativity, I suppose.
