Stores, Bars and Vikings Fans Ready For NFC Championship Game

After trading up to draft Carson Wentz, the Eagles then traded Bradford to Minnesota for a first-round pick and a fourth-round pick.

The backup for the Vikings is Sam Bradford.

Zimmer previously served as Vikings defensive coordinator, and his defenses have been in the top 10 in seven of the last nine seasons. Parcells retired from coaching Monday, Jan. 22, 2007, leaving the Dallas Cowboys after four seasons and ending a stellar career that featured three Super Bowl appearances and two championships. The Eagles rank fourth in both categories. Bradford, now back in uniform as Keenum's backup, blew out a knee in the first month of the season, as did rookie running back in Cook, who needed reconstructive surgery to fix a torn ACL. I did not have a heart attack, although Sunday's 29-24 win truly tested the new valve. "And we know going into this game that whoever's defense plays the best is going to win the game". If the ball comes to me, great, I'm going to make the play. They were 5-3 against the spread at home.

Once again, it is not hard to understand why. What worked last week versus a fast Falcons defense was the run-pass option. In just his second full year as a play-caller, Pederson, aggressive in nature, has blossomed into one of the best and most unique play-callers in the NFL.

Mistakes made against the Saints may derail the season if they are repeated against the Eagles. He caught three passes on five targets for 32 yards against the Falcons.

Nick Foles went searching for clarity, for guidance and for direction, but in time, he found the answer resided within him all along.

- The Vikings are 6-16 all-time in postseason road games.

The offense will need all the help it can get against the powerful Minnesota Defense. It won't be easy for the Vikings, what with 68,000 screaming fans, thousands in dog masks, making it impossible for upstart Vikings quarterback Case Keenum to verbally communicate with receivers Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen. If he passes it, we'll go get him. After holding walk-through practices before the final regular-season game, players wanted to put pads on during the bye week. But this coming Sunday, they each will have to do more. That feeling can only be one thing.it's the feeling of destiny.

Philadelphia's best shot is to withstand the onslaught for the first three-quarters of the game. With that being the case, multiple Vikings players said on Wednesday that they'll pay close attention to their footwear choices for Sunday's game according to ESPN's Courtney Cronin.

Even though the Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings had claimed the top two seeds going into the playoffs, there was still some speculation as to whether their quarterbacks could lead them to the promised land. It happened in Minneapolis, in the second half against Atlanta, when the Vikings, on the way to blowing a 13-point lead, scored 7 points after halftime, then watched Gary Anderson shank a 38-yarder. It just means that there's nothing wrong with sprinkling in some luck as well, and the home team had a healthy dose of it vs. Atlanta. The Eagles' defensive line will definitely look to feast on a banged up offensive line and force Keenum into some more of those badly timed interceptions.

Pederson was certainly unorthodox last Saturday at the Linc, but as he has all season, he just seemed to push the right buttons at the right times. But before we start to look ahead (can anyone say Pittsburgh Steelers?) let's take a deeper look at the trends leading into Sunday night.
