NFC Championship Game Preview

NFC Championship Game Preview

The Vikings were in shock, but what about their fans?

"Everybody thought (the Vikings) were going to lose at that one point so then we had a pretty good crowd in here and everyone went insane".

"I got desperate", Eddie said. But the momentum they had hoped would carry over from that win wasn't there.

Stay safe, Vikings fans.

The moment Stefon Diggs scored the game-winning touchdown last Sunday was one every Vikings fan will cherish the rest of their lives.

Perez, who has loved the Minnesota Vikings for about 45 years, had turned away from the game at U.S. Bank Stadium on January 14, expecting a loss for his team in the playoff game against the New Orleans Saints. Vikings fans around the state, region and even nation rejoiced in myriad ways, and some even sobbed tears of joy.

Fulda said they have to ensure they have extra food on hand to be able to provide those specials when there's a full house because of a Vikings game.

But TMZ spotted him out in the open on Sunday, wearing a Philadelphia Eagles windbreaker and grabbing coffee before headed to the NFC Championship game between the Eagles and Minnesota Vikings.

Both teams have a stellar defense and quarterbacks who were backups at the start of the season.

Apple CEO Tim Cook was asked during an interview if the announcements of job creation were related directly to the tax plan of the Republicans.

"These are the plays that aren't supposed to go Minnesota's way", Pelissero intones.

Meanwhile, the day before in Philly, the Eagles needed only one touchdown and 15 points to dethrone the defending NFC champion Falcons.

On the biggest stage of his life, Foles silenced the critics who thought the Eagles couldn't get to the Super Bowl without MVP candidate Carson Wentz.

He'll become a folk hero if he can deliver the franchise's first ever Super Bowl title.

While the Vikings failed to become the first team in National Football League history to play in a Super Bowl inside their home stadium, the Eagles will have the same opponent they did in their last Super Bowl when Tom Brady and the Patriots won Super Bowl 39. The team that lost the NFC Championship Game did not resemble the one that got the Vikings this far. Four of the five losses were on the road. The real key to this game will be the outstanding defenses.

NJ.com posted photos of a bloody man who they say was an Eagles fan and was fighting with police officers.

Likewise, can either team do the same here and take control of the game right away?

If you don't have access to a cable or satellite log-in, you can watch the show through Sling TV. With those four, the Eagles can lead the league in run defense (79.2) - the Vikings are second (83.6) - while getting pressure on the quarterback without having to blitz beyond what Schwartz calls his "surgical" strikes. That of course depends on the near future. They can't play like that and beat the Vikings. The question, however, is whether teams will choose to invest in the growing bubble of average to above average quarterbacks or if they'll try an approach similar to Jacksonville's and invest in the other side of the ball.
