Vikings vs. Eagles: Defense wins championships, or at least the NFC title

Video Why As a Hunter I’m Cheering for Case Keenum and the Vikings this Sunday

Moved earlier on January 18. The Patriots reached a seventh straight AFC championship without Julian Edelman and Dont'a Hightower. Dont'a Hightower. Allen Robinson. The other has the NFL's No. 1 unit.

If the front seven of Minnesota can get to Foles, their secondary, led by dominant safety Harrison Smith, has what it takes to create turnovers and set their offense up with favourable field position. The Eagles own the best home winning percentage (14-3, .824) in the National Football League since the start of the 2016 season, including playoffs ... I'm still not a big believer in Nick Foles. "At the end of the day, we have a tough group of guys".

Temperatures in Philadelphia are expected to hover around the mid- to upper-30s Sunday when the NFC Championship Game kicks off at Lincoln Financial Field, so the are preparing for what could be a rough night on a sloppy field. If Philadelphia can turn up the heat on Keenum, they may expose the Vikings' signal-caller. Philadephia are also out to prove that they can go all the way without their MVP calibre quarterback Carson Wentz, who tore his anterior cruciate ligament in December's victory over the Los Angeles Rams.

In filling in for Sam Bradford, Keenum has thrived in the face of an oncoming rush.

When he and his family would return home from church on Sundays, Vogel typically immediately turned the TV to the local CBS affiliate and watched running back Wilbert Montgomery, wide receiver Harold Carmichael and quarterback Ron Jaworski and the rest of the Eagles play.

The Vikings won't have the comfort of what looked and sounded a week ago like the entire state of Minnesota. The Vikings don't have to be flashy here, handing it off to Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon could be the recipe for success. "Just to be able to get down there - we're out of timeouts, Nick to Alshon on the sideline was huge to get us into that field goal range. I expect it to continue to be that way". They'd probably prefer conditions be a little frostier, with the Vikings used to playing half their games in the comfortable confines of U.S. Bank Stadium.

Linebacker Kyle Van Noy stepped in for Hightower and ranked third on the team with 73 tackles and second with 5½ sacks despite missing three of the final five games with a calf injury. DE Everson Griffen tied for fourth in league with career-high 13 sacks. "So we've used him a bunch of different ways".

Derided throughout the Jaguars' run to the playoffs, Bortles has largely provided the steady, mistake-free play that has been asked of him.

By Thursday donations had surpassed $150,000 dollars, and as such, per a promise made by Morstead himself, the Pro Bowl punter will fly to Minnesota to personally deliver a check to the Children's Hospital of Minnesota. There is very little effusive exultation tossed at Keenum and Foles like that thrown toward Wentz or New England's Tom Brady.

The defense of the Eagles is one of best in the NFL. I had to take a step back and say, 'You know, am I doing this for the right reason?' Because if I can't do it with my heart, I can't do it.
