We have reached the NFC Championship Game.
It’s a Nick Foles and Case Keenum showdown when the Minnesota Vikings make the trip to Lincoln Financial Field to take on the Philadelphia Eagles.
These teams faced off last year with the Philadelphia Eagles coming out on top winning that game 21-10.
The Minnesota Vikings might have pulled off one of the most shocking finishes to the game when they pulled off the Minneapolis Miracle as time expired against the Saints.
Stefon Diggs caught a 61 yard touchdown pass as time expired to shock the Saints and clinch their spot in the NFC Championship game.
They were actually up 17-0 against the Saints, but they struggled a bit in the second half on the offensive end, and an interception and a blocked punt gave the Saints some hope.
For the Vikings their game is built on two things. The offense needs to do just enough, and the defense needs to do what they have done all year, get the big stops.
The defense this year has been really good and consistent all year. They are giving up only 15.8 points per game which is the best mark in the NFL.
To win this game the Vikings need to not turn the ball over, and the defense is going to need to step up, and try to fluster Nick Foles early.
The Vikings with a win in this game would be the first team to play in their home stadium for the Super Bowl, since the Super Bowl went to neutral sites.
On the other side of this match up is the Philadelphia Eagles who have had a nice season so far this year, but most people counted them out when Carson Wentz went down with injury.
But against the Falcons the defense stepped up big, and although the offense really struggled the defense did enough to win the game 15-10.
Nick Foles actually played decent in the game. He threw for 246 yards and zero touchdowns. Although he didn’t throw a touchdown he didn’t throw any interceptions which was key to them winning the game.
In this game the Eagles are going to need to get a good game from Nick Foles. They need him to not turn the ball over, and they need him to get out to a fast start.
The Eagles can’t fall behind early as they don’t have the offensive firepower to come back.
