Eagles fans hope for a hometown win

Philadelphia hasn't participated in an NFC Championship since the '08 season when they lost 32-25 at Arizona.

Their NFC Championship Game opponents and corresponding fan base might be the ones donning dog masks on Sunday, but there is at least one room full of players on the Minnesota Vikings who view themselves as underdogs.

"It's easy to be a pass catcher when you're able to be on the same page as a quarterback", Eagles tight end Zach Ertz said. "Whoever is most complete will win". The victor advances to the Super Bowl.

"Typically, when you're good defensively, you're going to stay in the ballgames", Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. Safety Harrison Smith and Rhodes are All-Pros. They just mix it in.

"Case is playing extremely well".

Hearing about Minnesota's defense all week is extra motivation for Philadelphia, which is a home underdog for the second straight game. You watch the play five times, 100 times, or 1,000 times. "You know, he doesn't allow him to do too much that's not him", Graham said. "We have to be prepared. We'll just go out and be ourselves".

It's completely fair to claim that Case Keenum never got a good chance as a starter in the National Football League up until this season-middling seasons spent in Houston, two years under the ousted QB killer Jeff Fisher in St. Louis and Los Angeles.

However, if the Vikings succeed in stopping the run, the pressure will be put on Foles, who hasn't proved he can beat a secondary on his own since taking over for the injured Carson Wentz in December.

President Trump Says He's Not A Racist
"I can tell you explicitly they are wrong", the Illinois Democrat told CNN's Jake Tapper in an exclusive sit-down interview. Mr Trump has drawn criticism at home, from Republicans and Democrats, and overseas for the comments attributed to him.

And after all that, we have a Foles vs. Keenum quarterbacking showdown.

In retrospect, perhaps there should have been more who did.

More friends ended up joining the plan after the "Minneapolis Miracle". 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.

Still, it's Ramsey's Super Bowl guarantee for the Jaguars that figures to provide motivation for the Patriots.

The fight was between Eagles' fans and the police officers, and it doesn't appear any Vikings' fans were involved.

"I mean, it's pretty wild", Foles said, smiling. "It's all love, though". Injuries changed their personal trajectories, if not those of their squads, so when they square off at Lincoln Financial Field they'll be an unlikely combination for such a prominent contest. The weather should help, with a dry forecast and expected temperatures in the 40s, but the Vikings have been preparing for the worst.

NOT YET: The Vikings are 0-3 against the Eagles in the postseason. Minnesota has not been to the Super Bowl since 1977 and is 0-4 in them.
