The Eagles (2-2) held off the Packers 34-27 thanks to a late interception, but a Philadelphia fan with a tattoo of the Phillie Phanatic at Lambeau Field was an eye-opener.

Eagles fan Rob Dunphy was shirtless in the stands, showing off his Phanatic tattoo over his navel (his belly button represented the Phanatic's mouth) and an Interstate 95 sign in the middle of his chest, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

He was caught on camera during "Thursday Night Football."

Other parts of Dunphy's chest were decorated with tattoos of the Philadelphia skyline and the Liberty Bell, KYW reported

Dunphy made the trip to Wisconsin by car with his family and several friends Wednesday. His fiancee, Taylor Bond, told the Inquirer that Dunphy travels to three Eagles road games each year.

“I wish he would get it all finished already!” Bond told the newspaper. “A lot of people are asking where Gritty (the mascot of the NHL's Philadelphia Flyers) is. It’s coming... I believe he’s going to be coming out (from) behind the Phanatic. Not 100 percent sure.”
