Vikings vs. Eagles 2018: Prediction, Betting Odds, Preview For NFC Championship Game

Replay has grown into a monster that has unnecessarily damaged NFL's product. How can the league fix it?

Drew Baydala of Minneapolis' Ticket King told CBS Philadelphia he's warning Vikings fans to "remove their colors" if Minnesota wins. Ellerbe did play last week in the Divisional Round against the Atlanta Falcons, and he recorded a pair of tackles in the 15-10 victory.

From 2001 to 2008, the Eagles went to five NFC title games, losing four of them. Or whatever Nick Foles and Case Keenum are capable of burning. This is, literally, the worst thing a quarterback can do and the exact same play Brett Favre tried when he tossed an interception that knocked the Vikings out of a chance to go to the Super Bowl back in 2010. In fact, the Vikings ranked No. 4 in the National Football League this regular season in rushing yards by a tandem. Mills had an up-and-down season with many solid moments. Dating back to his days with the Chicago Bears, he has nine career games against the Vikings and he has done well. Those three games account for 500 yards. "Kind of try and thank him prior to the game, him and God", Diggs said, "and try and keep that thing going".

In Minnesota, defensive end Everson Griffen - a second-team All-Pro this season - leads the way. Who do the Eagles need to contain or stay away from?

Keenum's remarkable season will continue following the miracle finish against the Saints.

Minnesota also uses tight end Kyle Rudolph (57 catches, 532 yards, eight touchdowns) and running back Jerick McKinnon (51 catches, 421 yards, two touchdowns) effectively in the passing game.

Shurmur will attack the flanks of Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz's wide-9 alignment with RBs Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon, particularly behind LT Riley Reiff and converted LG Mike Remmers.

The Eagles have an advantage with Agholor's speed and ability to catch balls in the slot and deep down the field.

Tanier thinks the Eagles have the edge in a couple of key areas.

Sunday's NFC Championship game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field will be a matchup of two franchises that have lost six Super Bowls in total and have had more than their share of post-season disappointments. I can dig that, but that last-second touchdown pass still required a high degree of skill, namely from Case Keenum, who threw the ball right where it needed to be.

While Foles' performance on Sunday will be instrumental in determining if the Eagles can defeat the Minnesota Vikings and get to Super Bowl LII, it isn't the most important for the Eagles. Robison joined the Vikings in 2007 and if the they're able to advance to the Super Bowl, stopping Ajayi before he gets momentum behind his pads to truck through the second level of the defense will be vital. Naturally, the Falcons rallied, scoring a touchdown with 57 seconds left and winning in overtime when their own foreign-born kicker with a similar surname - Morten Andersen - drilled a field goal from, you guessed it, 38 yards. He was then chosen by the Eagles as the 13th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

While Souhan's power rankings would indicate that a trip to Philly is the ideal scenario for Vikings, the Eagles seemed to relish the home underdog role against the Falcons in the divisional round.
