Vikings will play NFC championship game at Philadelphia

Vikings will play NFC championship game at Philadelphia

Philadelphia reached the Super Bowl in the 1980 and 2004 seasons and will head back to the title game with a win Sunday.

The Eagles will open as an underdog in the NFC Championship.

The Philadelphia Eagles take on the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship. It was a stunning victory for the Vikings as the Saints rallied back to gain the lead 21-20 with three minutes left. Keenum manned the reins after Sam Bradford, who was acquired by the Eagles in exchange for Foles then sent to Minnesota after Teddy Bridgewater's knee injury in 2016, was sidelined with a knee ailment. Jeffery's connection with Foles hasn't been excellent so far, catching 11 of 22 passes for 137 yards and a touchdown from Foles since quarterback Carson Wentz went down with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

The AFC and NFC championship games are set!

This season, Philadelphia has wins over the Panthers, Rams and Cowboys. The Vikings will visit Lincoln Financial Field for a game against the Eagles at 6:40 p.m. on January 21 with a Super Bowl appearance at stake.

The Eagles and the Vikings had the same record of 13-3 in the regular season, but Philadelphia earned the right to host the game because of a better record vs. common opponents (Minnesota's loss to Carolina was the difference).

Eagles QB Nick Foles is 0-2 against Mike Zimmer-coached defenses in his career. The Eagles ranked No. 3, putting up 28.6 points per game. Minnesota allowed the fewest points per game (15.8) and yards per game (275.9) in the league, while Keenum led a balanced offense that benefit from a talented group of skill-position players.

If next weekend is anything like this weekend, both games will be awesome.

In the latest episode of The No-Huddle Show, Eagles reporters Eliot Shorr-Parks and Matt Lombardo give their initial thoughts on the matchup, what problems the Vikings might cause the Eagles and how the Eagles might be able to beat the Vikings and play in Super Bowl 52. Keenum has played the majority of the season as the starter.
