Unlikely pals lead Vikings, Eagles into playoff showdown

20 January 2018

Keenum proved everyone wrong, impressively leading the Vikings offense to a NFC North division title. Minnesota does everything well on defense, which means the Eagles are going to have to be sharp with minimal errors and no giveaways.

The Eagles beat the Vikings 21-10 in 2016, a game in which was sacked six times behind a struggling offensive line. Brett Favre is second at 15.

Once the total raised by Minnesota fans reached $100,000, the punter pledged to make the trip to Minnesota to deliver the check himself.

"Brady has five Super Bowl rings, and the other three quarterbacks still left in the tourney hardly have three playoff wins".

This will be a one-score game late in the third quarter before the Patriots win it, 27-16. Stephen is likely the only player on the roster who won't be available for Sunday's game. Eagles in NFC championship game for first time since losing 32-25 at Arizona on January 18, 2009.

Editor's note: NESN.com's Mike Cole, Ricky Doyle and Andre Khatchaturian deliver their against-the-spread National Football League picks every Thursday of the season, and here's who they like in this Sunday's Minnesota Vikings vs. Philadelphia Eagles NFC Championship Game, with the line from OddsShark.

NFL fared: Keenum leads Vikings to NFC title game
Although Foles had captured the starting spot to begin with, he was ultimately replaced by Keenum late in the season. King says the Vikings' NFC Championship game at Philadelphia is a winnable one, and that sets up something special.

Foles silenced his doubters last week with an extremely controlled performance against the Atlanta Falcons.

This has nothing to do with Nick Foles' struggles in the passing game but more to the fact that the Eagles have three backs who can carry the weight. What's more impressive, however, is that he posted an adjusted completion percentage of 70.2 on his pressured attempts, which was good for second among the same group. "I would advise you to not be over-inebriated, because they will be".

The NFL will control the game-day presentation, meaning the Viking horn - one that sounds during games - may not be heard quite so often. The Saints are also a high powered offense, and that game generated 53 points, in part because the Vikes have playmakers.

At the same time, the Eagles boast a pretty good defense as well.

Dealing with the crowd noise will be Vikings quarterback Case Keenum.

"I just think it's important that these kids know they're not forgotten", he said. The Vikings don't face as daunting a task with Foles under center for the Eagles, and the Diggs play shows that destiny might be with the Vikings.

Additionally there have been other big influences such as the expiration of the first ever Bitcoin futures contracts this week. But bitcoin has been particularly volatile recently, and is down by almost half from its peak of more than $19,000 last month.

Foles signed a two-year deal with the Eagles before this season after his contract was up in Kansas City.

Williams' mishap illustrates the nature of a legacy: It can be unfair and change in an instant, defined by one short moment over a season or career of work.

Is that a matter of Keenum, Foles and Goff developing? He can throw it behind his back with accuracy, give you the no-look pass.

Finally, one thing to keep and eye on in this game is how the Vikings react to playing outdoors. He was scheduled to undergo further tests Friday, but coach Mike Zimmer told reporters that he expects him to play.

"He does a better a job than I do", the coach said.

But there's a sneaking suspicion that the Patriots (14-3) are well aware of what All-Pro safety Jalen Ramsey of the Jaguars (12-6) has been saying about Sunday's AFC championship game, in which host New England is a 9-point choice.
