It's Vikings vs. Eagles for the NFC title!

NFL notes: Many St. Louis ties spice NFC title game

NFL notes: Many St. Louis ties spice NFC title game

But that's a column for another day.

Fans started making plans for Sunday's game against the Eagles hours after the 29-24 win.

The Vikings are playing in the NFC Championship Game for the first time since the 2009 season when they lost a thriller to the New Orleans Saints in overtime with Brett Favre under center.

Astonishingly, one retailer is reaping the benefits of the Eagles' success. He's hawking them on his website for $18 a pop, and all the money he makes will be donated to the School District of Philadelphia. To win this thing they're going to have to go through two dynamic defenses. But it's definitely a challenge.

"I'm a Minnesota sports fan myself", she said. They're going to be in the mix. They were three games away from their lifelong dream - something no Eagles team has ever done - so why is any extra motivation necessary? "And you can't say that every year".

While Charles was already in the fold when Pederson arrived in Kansas City, the Chiefs acquired quarterback Alex Smith via trade in 2013 and the former No. 1 overall pick went on to post single-season career highs in passing yards (3,313) and passing touchdowns (23), while earning his first trip to the Pro Bowl in his first year under Pederson's tutelage.

The Eagles are now 3.5-point underdogs to the Vikings in Sunday's NFC Championship Game, according to Westgate. The Eagles run the ball more now than they did under Reid.

Referee Clete Blakeman is working Sunday.

8 - Sunday's game will feature six players that scored at least eight touchdowns during the regular season.

Looking at how much Pederson is crushing the rest of his classmates should put a huge smile on the faces of Eagles fans since the chances of this team preparing for the NFC Championship would have been highly unlikely with one of these other coaches. "So, that's all. I have no time".

"That's going to be a teaching moment for us as we go on to this new game", McLeod said, who says he would have played it differently.

The Titans also reportedly will get together with Texans defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel and Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks. Against the Falcons, LeGarrette Blount ran in from the 1 on fourth down to give the Eagles a 6-3 lead early in the second quarter.

Win or lose this weekend, Reich and DeFilippo would be able to speak with those teams in the coming week. That was head coach Doug Pederson. Their tight ends coach at the time? I think I was wrong on how far I went with Doug.

"I want to witness history. That's been a proven winning formula for a long time, so I think this week is a good test of that".

"It just shows you little things matter, man", McLeod said. "I love how he plays the game".

So here are Foles and Keenum in 2018, blowing up what we thought was now required to win an NFC championship - a top talent at the game's most important position.

Their quarterback, Matt Ryan, has the fourth-highest passer rating in National Football League postseason history, behind Jeff Hostetler and Hall of Famers Kurt Warner and Bart Starr.

To get there though, Minnesota will have to go to top-seeded Philadelphia and get past the Eagles.

Fast forward to 2017, and the Vikings re-signed Bradford while the Eagles signed Foles in free agency to be their backup. Everson Griffin leads the Vikings with 13 sacks. Of course, but we are where we are, which given the circumstances of the season, seems right where the Eagles want to be.
