Philadelphia Eagles' Doug Pederson: 'We're going to the stinkin' Super Bowl'

Frank Vogel will root for the Philadelphia Eagles to win NFC Championship

Sunday's game will be the the biggest test thus far. "But we just didn't get it done". Belichick beat the Jaguars without Julian Edelman, Dont'a Hightower or, for two quarters, Rob Gronkowski.

The Eagles and their dog masks are going to the Super Bowl for the first time in 13 years.

Five Eagles finished the game with at least three receptions, as Foles spread the ball around to his weapons.

Bortles, who had never won a playoff game before this month, had outplayed Brady through three quarters, with a quarterback rating of 121.9 to the five-time National Football League champion's 87.5. "But, like I said, it's going to be hard to watch them come play in our stadium next week". That sparked a drive that ended with Foles launching a 53-yard touchdown pass to Jeffery with 1:09 left. When you have a bad outing everyone wants to be very critical and I get that it's part of the media's job.

Jacksonville took a 20-10 lead on Josh Lambo's field goal on the second play of the fourth quarter. Then the turnover was a mistake that definitely brought everyone back. On third-and-18 from the New England 25, Brady hit Danny Amendola for 21 yards.

By the end of the NFC Championship game, after Foles (26-for-33, 352 yards and three TDs) had thrown a 41-yard touchdown pass to Torrey Smith on a flea flicker, the Eagles and their fill-in quarterback - now winners over the Vikings - were flying on cloud nine, which happens to be Foles' jersey number.

Eagles players aren't the only ones who could pull on a dog mask to taunt the people who didn't think they'd reach Super Bowl LII by winning back-to-back playoff games as home underdogs. "They just executed and made plays". He actually outplayed Matt Ryan but Foles didn't have wrecking ball Fletcher Cox breathing down his neck all game. Then Zach Ertz piled up 93 yards on eight catches. He completed 28 of 48 passes for 271 yards, and his passer rating of 63.8 was his lowest in any game this season.

"I chose the Eagles for the reason of me fitting in really good here, having a championship run, having a banner season", Blount said after he signed. Offensively, the Vikings had the seventh-best running game (122.3), but their average of 3.9 ranked 23rd. "I'm just so happy for him after what he's been through". "I wanted to make sure he knew it". Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich, who doesn't call plays, touched last week on the need to continue doing just that in Sunday's game.

Wearing a gray T-shirt and backward cap, both reading "Conference Champions", Wentz talked with teammates in the Eagles' locker room but declined to comment on the game.

"It's been an awesome season".

"When I'm done playing, I'll reflect on this year", he said. When looking at all of the injuries over the months ranging from Carson Wentz to Jason Peters, plenty of football fans doubted the Eagles would be able to pull off the unthinkable by being in this position, but here they are.
