Eagles Fans Chant 'WE WANT BRADY' During NFC Title Game

Philadelphia Eagles Nick Foles celebrates after an NFL

Sunday will feature some great matchups, Xavier Rhodes vs. Alshon Jeffrey for instance. An aggressive drive netted 75 yards in eight plays with a flea-flicker from Foles to Torrey Smith for 41 yards, boosting the lead to 31-7.

For the Vikings, an NFC Championship would be an historic feat - Minnesota is hosting Super Bowl LII and no National Football League team has ever played a Super Bowl in its home stadium.

Instead, the Eagles will seek their first Super Bowl crown in Minnesota on February 4; their last championship came in 1960. "I was running down the sideline and I was like, no, I definitely can't go out of bounds so I just cut it back upfield [Ronald] Darby made a great block, sprung me to the end zone". "It is honestly unbelievable".

A second Vikings turnover led the another Eagles touchdown. "Opening up the game with how electric that crowd was and going down and scoring, that felt good. I have to step up and get away from the pass rush, or be smarter". Who could blame them if they can't get the job done with their backup quarterback?

Not everybody was buying the underdog thing.

The Philadelphia Eagles find themselves in another NFC Championship game among some unlikely circumstances. After the clock had melted to 0:00, the sound system blasted McFadden & Whitehead's "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now", and no one in the place left, except the Vikings.

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles had a spectacular showing in the win as he completed 26 of his 33 total pass attempts against a good Vikings defense for 352 yards and 3 touchdowns.

The Eagles' defensive highlights started the second time it stepped on the field. A 53-yard touchdown pass to Jeffery late in the first half was particularly stunning.

The crowd that was supposed to make it hard for the Vikings offence to communicate was momentarily stunned.

Foles was helped greatly by the Eagles' domination on defense and a spectacular weaving 50-yard interception return TD by Patrick Robinson. Eagles rookie defensive end Derek Barnett, drafted by Philadelphia with a pick acquired in the trade that sent Sam Bradford to Minnesota, jarred the ball from Keenum on a strip-sack. "We made a mistake and they scored".

Philadelphia native James Palmer compares Carson Wentz's season-ending injury in Week 14 to Randall Cunningham's in 1991. Foles was able to move around long enough to be able to deliver the deep pass.

Dogs were up 21-7.

Hours after Brady's game-winning 4-yard TD pass to Danny Amendola with 2:48 remaining in Foxborough, the Eagles won for the fourth time in five tries under Foles. The Minnesota Vikings' misery extends all the way back to 1976. Any hope of a Minnesota comeback was nixed. But Eagles coach Doug Pederson realises that his young team could be on the verge of history, even without Wentz. We're going to have so much fun. "That's all you need to know". This is just the third time that the Eagles have reached the Super Bowl and the first time since 2005, when they lost to ... the Patriots.

Vikings center Pat Elflein and safety Andrew Sendejo were both knocked out of Sunday's NFC championship against Philadelphia with injuries. Philadelphia won a wild-card game in Minnesota after the 2008 season and home games in the divisional rounds on the way to Super Bowl appearances following the 1980 and 2004 seasons. "We know going into this game that whoever's defense plays better is gonna win the game", Fletcher Cox told the media at Thursday's presser.
