The Philadelphia Eagles are headed to the NFC Championship Game against the victor of the Minnesota Vikings-New Orleans Saints game on Sunday.
The Eagles haven't played either the Vikings or the Saints this season. New Orleans couldn't get much going on offense all game and was down 26-9 early in the fourth quarter before scoring 10 late points. Case Keenum filled in and has been one of the NFC's biggest surprises, throwing for 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions. The Saints led that one wire to wire but their defense was forced to stop a driving Cam Newton at the very end of the game to escape with the victory. Over the course of the season, the Vikings held opposing running backs to the fewest scrimmage yards in the NFL.
For those scoring at home, the Saints have now allowed four players to hit 100 receiving yards in the past two weeks, in addition to giving up 300-yard performances to quarterbacks in each contest. Coach Mike Zimmer made his customary Friday call for noise from Vikings fans, as his defense tries to pressure one of the league's hardest QBs to sack, and the faithful figure to deliver.

We love how the one kid corrects the other on Teddy Bridgewater being back, noting that he's "still not playing".
The Minnesota Vikings have activated quarterback Sam Bradford from injured reserve, putting their original starter this season on the roster before their first playoff game. That combo was held to 68 total yards in their playoff win against Carolina last week, though. They ranked first in yards per play, second in passing defense, second in rushing defense and they were first in third-down conversion percentage.
