Gov. Wolf makes Tastykake bet with Minnesota Governor over NFC Championship game

"I know this is what all you guys predicted back in the day was a Foles versus Keenum NFC Championship, so good job to all you guys that predicted that", Keenum said Wednesday. The Falcons beat the Rams in the wild card round this year before the Eagles eliminated Atlanta in the divisional round last Saturday. That same head coach failed to have any success with either quarterback, going 11-14 with them at the helm. Newman is vulnerable with Agholor's array of skills and the Eagles can take advantage of this matchup even more in the early stages of the game before the teams settle down.

Garcia said the price point is also a significant increase from what Eagles fans are used to.

A team doesn't need an outstanding quarterback to win a Super Bowl. It looked as if the Vikings were going to blow their 17-0 halftime lead Sunday against the Saints, but Keenum threw a touchdown as time expired to win. "We have to approach it as we do any road environment where it's the noise that we have to deal with and then keep the rest of it out of it".

"You've just always got to believe and you always have to prepare", Foles said. Scoring 15 points again this week won't cut it against the Vikings, particularly against a defense that can stuff any offensive attack. Taking all of this into consideration, let's look at what to expect come Sunday between the Eagles and Vikings to see which team has the best chance of moving on to Super Bowl 52. However, Vaitai had a masterful game against the Falcons, opening up running lanes and having a few high impact blocks. Obviously, that has much more to do with the team than it does the quarterback alone, but it's a pretty glaring statistic. Both teams are nearly mirror images of one another which should give fans of both teams the chills going in. And on the Birds' first play from scrimmage against Atlanta, that's what Foles did, attempting to throw deep to Torrey Smith and drawing a pass-interference penalty.

One thing the Vikings do well is stop the run.

"They're a group that likes to get after the pass rusher, no matter what", said Vikings tight end David Morgan. On November 1, 2015, Jeffery had 10 receptions for 116 yards and one touchdown.

Stephen has been the Vikings' top reserve nose tackle, so his absence will thin the Vikings' defensive line rotation. His entire family are good people. And as Mike said, the Vikings just don't turn the ball over. [Keenum] has really done an fantastic job. But with the lead and the closing minutes winding down, the Eagles made a decision to tweak their defense and give Jones cushion to catch the ball, just not beat them deep.

The Browns are mocked for passing on Wentz, but they still got a haul by exploiting Philadelphia's desperation to upgrade at the position. Playing together. Getting the rhythm.

The Eagles ranked fourth in both points (18.4) and yards allowed per game (306.5). The Jags, No.2 overall in the National Football League defensively, have allowed an average of 17.4 points and 299.2 yards per game through during the regular season and the playoffs.
