Home underdogs again, Eagles embrace their role as spoiler

Foles' struggles late in the regular season made critics debate the alternative, Nate Sudfeld. After the Rams drafted Jared Goff with the No. 1 overall pick in 2016, Foles requested his release and signed with Reid and the Chiefs. Foles didn't throw any touchdown passes, but he wasn't picked off either.

This Sunday, Minnesota will be fighting for a spot in the Super Bowl when they face off against the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship. In fact, both Case Keenum and Nick Foles were teammates on the Los Angeles Rams a couple years back, adding even more intrigue to this matchup. The Vikings seem to have a thing of destiny behind them. "Case's success and the way he plays doesn't surprise me because him and I were together and we prepared together". We were around each other every day. "But I think the big message there is, no matter what happens, you've just got to keep believing in yourself, keep working hard, never give up".

The Eagles operate the same way. He was skewered for his blocking and physicality in the past - particularly in a game last season against the Cincinnati Bengals - but he's improved in that category this season.

Then, after a Vikings field goal, Brees to Alvin Kamara.

The change in quarterbacks is noticeable even during warmups. But live in this city and you're going to develop extremely tough skin, what I've learned. He began 2013 as the backup to Michael Vick in Kelly's first season in the National Football League and ended up having a sensational year, leading the Eagles to an NFC East title. "They have a good defense but ours is rated number one I'm pretty sure and I think we'll pull it off", Maple River student Timothy Buckholtz said.

"You just had to bear it", Wall said reluctantly.

All that now stands between the new purple people eaters and their heroic quarterback is a road game against the Philadelphia Eagles which will likely be played in the brutal cold.

Philadelphia fans are notoriously demanding, but they've waited a long time for a first Super Bowl championship.

Think about it. While the Vikings are still riding high on a miracle victory, the Eagles are back to full contact practices.

The path for Stefon Diggs to last-play touchdown fame and sudden Minnesota savior didn't start with such brilliance.

"They've taken it to the next level, further than I did", Marvin said. He's not just a caretaker, per se.

Of the 23 plays, Philadelphia ran the ball 17 times, or 77 percent of the time, and attempted just six passes. I would look for either Brent Celek or Trey Burton to get some receptions while the attention is on Ertz.

It already has been determined that the Vikings, based on the National Football League scheduling format, will play a game next season at Philadelphia. His prediction: Vikings 20, Eagles 14. "These past five years since I've been here, the quarterback room has been kind of a shuffleboard, per se".

It's going to take a masterful game plan to get Nick Foles and the offense going, but Reich is confident in his group.

The trio agreed that it will have to be a collective team effort in order to slow down an offense designed on confusing the defense.
