Vikings fans across Minnesota and beyond have been bundling all their nervous energy and releasing it through the Skol chant.

It was only introduced in 2016, but the chant borrowed from the Icelandic soccer team has become a firm fans favorite.

There was no more iconic moment for it, either, than last Sunday when Case Keenum led U.S. Bank Stadium in the chant following the Minneapolis Miracle.

And Minnesotans haven't stop since – including those who have made the trip to Philadelphia. Just take a look at some of the awesome scenes from this week.

And in case you haven't seen it – or want to watch it for the 127th time – here's Case leading the chant.
