But it won't be easy.

The Minnesota Vikings have designated Pro Bowl receiver Adam Thielen as questionable for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Two more stout defenses will be featured in the NFC Championship, which kicks off at 5:40 p.m. on FOX.

Exceptional defense can carry a team far: In nine of the last 10 seasons, the No. 1 or No. 2 team in points allowed participated in a conference championship game.

At Mr. D's, "you could hear a pin drop at the end of the game, everybody had their heads down and then all of a sudden, there was an uproar".

Of course, you have. The Eagles are underdogs for the second straight week, with the Vikings favored by three points. However, the Jags do have a defense that is arguably better than the Vikings, at least according to people on the television set.

"That's all behind us now". "We each get to showcase what we can do". The Vikings have a different quarterback and the offensive line is now a strength, but the Eagles also believe their defense is much better than last year's unit, which ranked 12th in points allowed and 13th in yards allowed. A tweet was sent out Friday afternoon prematurely proclaiming a Super Bowl matchup between the Patriots and Vikings.

Perdue said that "the potential is there" for a deal to protect the "Dreamers" but that Democrats needed to get serious. I'm not a racist", Trump said Sunday, after reporters asked him to respond to those who think he is.

That means playing with a clean slate and leaving nothing on the field in the City of Brotherly Love.

In turn, two of the league's top defenses will look to pressure the opposing quarterback. Not to get ahead of myself/the situation, but this season seems to have been one of the more cursed in the history of the National Football League in terms of injuries and should an injury stop The Patriots in their tracks it'd mean that the Vikings are simply one of the few teams that survived the injury bug. However, Philly lost its starting quarterback, Carson Wentz, to a torn ACL in Week 14 and their offense hasn't been almost as formidable since. Foles completed 36-of-55 passes for 410 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. His passer rating when the pocket is kept clean, however, is 107.8.

But his response on Friday was even more brilliant - not only having some fun at his own expense but bringing even more attention to a fantastic charity cause that the two teams have been sharing in all week. Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon are averaging close to four yards per carry. Ellerbe has been limited in practice all week for Philadelphia. Freeman added 26 receiving yards and a touchdown catch.

Pederson stressed focus and consistency to his players this week, leading up to the most monumental game of the season.

The Vikings are going to win in Philadelphia.
