High Schools With Eagles As Mascot To Cheer Against Philadelphia Sunday

At the time, Foles couldn't see the bigger picture, nor could he have predicted that he'd now be reflecting on that pivotal moment while standing in front of an NFC championship game backdrop at the Philadelphia Eagles' facility Wednesday afternoon. Case in point: the Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints played a classic in the second game, yet still freshly stinging from playoff elimination, I didn't really watch even though the television was on in the room.

Meanwhile, the Eagles defense is not taking Keenum and the Vikings offense lightly.

Only Will Brinson thinks the Eagles will win at home to earn a Super Bowl berth.

Sam Bradford got hurt early on in the season, and with Teddy Bridgewater still recovering from his leg injury, the Vikings had to turn to Case Keenum, who had managed to escape the nightmarish Jeff Fisher situation in Los Angeles. The last two times the Eagles went to the Super Bowl, the Eagles beat the Vikings along the way.

The Vikings have lost five conference finals in a row, the most recent of them eight seasons ago, since last playing in the Super Bowl in 1976.

In the NFC Championship, I am going to go with the road team again. Only Mike Tanier and Tyler Dunne picked the Eagles to win. The Eagles as a group rushed for 96 yards including a couple of 10-yard plus runs on jet sweeps by Agholor.

Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery had seven touchdown catches in nine games vs. the Vikings as a member of the Bears, as reported at StarTribune.com. The Vikings are pretty good everywhere, and ultimately I have a little more faith in Keenum than in Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles. But indications are strong that Thielen will start, despite a lower back injury that cost him one day of practice this week and limited him for two others. It's the second week in a row the betting experts have picked the Birds' opponent.

House Republican Leaders Working On Short-Term Spending Bill
Democrats have tied the issues together by threatening to vote against any spending bill that doesn't include a DACA fix. An added complication is that House GOP defense hawks are not yet sold on the idea of another stopgap.

Like thousands of others draped in their purple and gold, Van Sloun was at the game and witnessed the miraculous play up close.

The Vikings won 21-18 at TCF Bank Stadium.

A trend is beginning to emerge.

The stakes for Sunday's matchup at much higher than the previous matchups - a trip to Super Bowl LII. Dan Graziano is the sole Eagles supporter here.

But what if I told you I'm picking the Jacksonville Jaguars to upset New England in Foxborough, Mass., Sunday? And Minnesota allowed only 25.2 percent of third downs to be converted against them.

The Vikings led the National Football League in both points allowed and yards allowed. The biggest play of course was the game-winning touchdown he scored, but he is just relishing the opportunity the Vikings have another game to play.
