NFC Championship Game: 3 Keys to a Vikings Victory

With Fairytale Ending, Vikings Lift the Curse

If Agholor is able to get some space, he could have a big game.

Despite having the two best records in the NFC in 2017, that does not mean that the Eagles and Vikings go unscathed throughout the season. He retired in 2002 after spending his final season with the Dolphins, and he's been a TV fixture ever since.

That's an important numeric pecking order trend that the fellas in Philly don't like hearing and seem determined to swat off the nearest sportswriter's forehead come Sunday night. Even though he lost his starting quarterback and running back, the Vikings were able to finish 11th in total offense this season. That being said, I favor the Vikings in this matchup. I think he's [Rhodes] a much better player, obviously, and he's playing with a lot of confidence. "Honestly, it's unbelievable to win this game and we are not finished", said Foles.

"His attitude and the way he approaches things, coming from New England, coming off winning a Super Bowl, I think the biggest thing that Chris has brought here is a bunch of leadership, especially being the older guy in our room", Pro Bowl defensive tackle Fletcher Cox said. "Then we'll see what happens". After all, this is the NFL's fourth-ranked defense (in both points and yards) going up against the top-ranked defense.

Chuck Gulati from Gilbertsville and his Eagles-themed RV will be heading to "The Linc" on Sunday.

Turnovers are what kept the Falcons in the game against Philadelphia last week. Its first four possessions went punt, interception, fumble, interception. Marcus Sherels put the offense in great field position in the first quarter with a 19-yard punt return, but the Vikings also had a punt blocked in the four quarter.

The Eagles had six sacks, 13 additional hits on Sam Bradford and three takeaways. His role has decreased in Philadelphia - he played 48 percent of the snaps - but he's been an instrumental part of the team's success and keeping a deep defensive line fresh. But, the Eagles defense is absolutely superb.

The Vikings are the best defense in the history of the NFL at getting off the field on third down, and the Eagles were third in the league this season. They led 17-0, although the Saints did have 92 yards in penalties, including an illegal-motion penalty that nullified a touchdown pass.

With the weather expected to be much nicer than it's been for either of the Birds' last three games, it's tempting to take the over, but everything else about this one is screaming under. They're not regrouping following a lopsided loss, they have to bring themselves back to reality after their wonderful win against the Saints, with wide receiver Stefon Diggs scoring the game-winning touchdown on a 61-yard, catch-and-run pass on the final play of the game as time expired.
