- Vikings 7 Eagles 38 Philadelphia advances to the Super Bowl The Minnesota Vikings have had lots of tough losses throughout the franchise’s history in big games. Vikings fans will remember the four Super Bowl losses, the five straight NFC Championship Games, and the Blair Walsh miss in 2015. It’s been tough loss after loss and tonight added another notch in the Vikings’ belt in Philadelphia. The night started off great as the Vikings drove right down the field. Case Keenum found Kyle Rudolph from 25 yards out for the touchdown and Minnesota led 7-0. It was all downhill from there as the Eagles took over. Philly went three-and-out and punted on their first drive. On the next possession, Case Keenum threw an interception to Patrick Robinson, who ran it 50 yards for a touchdown. This tied the game at seven, but the Eagles kept rolling all night. Nick Foles led the Eagles down the field on their next drive and LeGarette Blount ran it in from eleven yards out for the touchdown. Late in the second quarter, Nick Foles found Alshon Jeffery with a big play. Jeffery caught and ran it in from 53 yards out for the touchdown. Jake Elliot added a field goal before the end of the half and the Eagles had a 24-7 lead. It was more of the same in the third frame. Nick Foles hooked up with Torrey Smith for a 41-yard touchdown and the rout was on. Early in the fourth, Alshon Jeffery added another TD and the Eagles sealed this one up early. Philadelphia had a 38-7 lead and basically iced the game. The Eagles ran out the clock and were NFC Champions and heading to the Super Bowl in two weeks. -Final Thoughts- Case Keenum struggled tonight. He threw for 271 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. Jerick McKinnon led the team with 40 rushing yards on ten carries. McKinnon led in receptions with eleven catches for 86 yards. Stefon Diggs had eight catches for 70 yards. Anthony Harris led the defense with seven tackles after filling in for an injured Andrew Sendejo. Danielle Hunter had a sack and a tackle for loss. Kai Forbath made his only extra point. Ryan Quigley had one of his best games. He averaged 48 yards per punt on the day. Overall, this was the worst game of the year for the Vikings after having a fantastic season. I think everyone expected a better effort, but the Eagles were great after the first Vikings drive. The defense played their worst game of the year and Case Keenum made mistakes. Next up, the New England Patriots face off with the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl in two weeks. -Chris Kreibich-
- Eagles Schedule From A Birds Eye View 2018 Philadelphia Eagles schedule was released tonight and for the first time, they are defending Super Bowl champions. They open up the NFL season against Atlanta at the Linc on Thursday, September 6th to finally raise that championship banner. Here are some other nuances of their schedule: Eagles play 5 prime time games (2 Home, 3 Away) this season, 6 if you count the Week 6 game in London vs. Jacksonville. Eagles have a 6-1 record vs. ATL at the Linc. Week 1 will be the 4th straight season they will play the Falcons. Minnesota Vikings, who were crushed by the Birds back in the NFC Title game, won’t come back to Philly until Week 5. Eagles won’t play their 1st division matchup until Week 6 at the NY Giants on a Thursday night which is a quick turnaround 4 days after the Vikings game (4:35 ET kickoff). The Jaguars game in London (Week 8) will be the Eagles’ 1st regular season game in franchise history overseas. Eagles will play back to back road games only once this season ( & It will be interesting to see if the Birds stay out west on this road trip as they did last year to beat the Rams. Eagles have their bye in Week 9 which is exactly when half of the NFL season is completed. It’s also the week after their game in London vs. JAX. Looks like the league gave the Champs some seniority there. Perfect time to take off. NFL must love the ratings from Eagles vs. Cowboys games. With the exception of Thanksgiving 2014, PHI vs. DAL has had at least one prime time matchup every season since 2007. Week 10 is a SNF game when Dallas visits the Linc. Super Bowl LIII (53) is in Atlanta and will be broadcast on CBS which means Tony Romo, former Cowboys QB is their color analyst. Will he be forced to cover the Eagles that night? Best believe all of Philly would love to see that happen.

- By Frank Schwab, Shutdown Corner Minnesota Vikings (14-3) at Philadelphia Eagles (14-3)Sunday, 6:40 p.m. ET on Fox Livestreaming on Yahoo Sports app VIKINGS AT A GLANCE Key player: Defensive end Everson Griffen will get some extra attention from the Eagles. Philadelphia left tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai hasn’t been a liability replacing Jason Peters, after Peters’ season-ending injury, but this is a tough matchup for him. Griffen had 13 sacks this season and is one of the best ends in the NFL. Griffen could disrupt the Eagles’ game plan, and if nothing else he could force the Eagles to make adjustments in their gameplan to help Vaitai. [Stream the NFL Playoffs live on the Yahoo Sports mobile app] Why they’ll win: After Stefon Diggs’ miracle, are you picking against them? While it’s illogical to believe in things like “team of destiny,” if you do believe in such things then the Vikings seem like they’re the one. More relevant is their defense matching up against the Eagles. Philadelphia scored just one touchdown last week, on a fourth down. It averaged 3 yards per rush. The Eagles weren’t bad on offense last week but this is a much different challenge. The Vikings allowed the fewest yards and points in the NFL this regular season. The Eagles are going to struggle to move the ball. Why they’ll lose: There’s a flip side to the unbelievable Stefon Diggs play, and it’s that it’s a heck of a high to come down from. The Vikings coaching staff has been great all season, but it needs to refocus the team immediately from one of the greatest plays in American sports this century. It’s also worth noting that the Vikings needed a once-in-forever play to beat the New Orleans Saints at home. It wasn’t all that fluky either — before Diggs’ play the Saints had outgained the Vikings and were in position to win despite losing the turnover battle on the road. If the Saints can almost beat the Vikings on the road, it’s not inconceivable the Eagles could beat them in Philadelphia. Keep in mind: The Vikings rely on wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen for most of their production in the passing game, and the Eagles allow a lot of receptions and yards to receivers. The Eagles allowed 2,485 receiving yards to receivers according to Pro Football Reference, which was ninth most in the NFL, and the 199 receptions to receivers was tied for sixth most. The Vikings will test the Eagles’ cornerbacks. Case Keenum celebrates after the Vikings’ improbable divisional round playoff win. (AP) EAGLES AT A GLANCE Key player: The Eagles spread the carries around many backs, but Jay Ajayi is their most talented back and it wouldn’t be surprising if the Eagles ride him a little more than they have. Ajayi had 54 rushing yards on 15 carries and 44 receiving yards too, including a crucial 32-yard screen pass that was the Eagles’ longest play of the game. The Vikings are good against the pass and the run, but Ajayi might be the Eagles’ best shot to move the ball. [Stream the NFL Playoffs live on the Yahoo Sports mobile app] Why they’ll win: We focus on quarterback, but Saturday was a good reminder that team efforts can win football games. The Eagles played very well against the Falcons, including Nick Foles. The coaches had a great plan, the offensive line was good, the backs ran hard and the defense frustrated the Falcons’ offense. The Eagles are a different team without Carson Wentz, but if we ignore a meaningless Week 17 game, they still haven’t lost without Wentz. The crowd will be great in Philly on Sunday night, and if the Eagles put together another full team effort (and Foles does his job again), they could go to the Super Bowl. Why they’ll lose: In each of the Eagles’ past three games they have turned the ball over twice. For as great as Minnesota’s defense is, it surprisingly doesn’t force many turnovers. The Vikings were tied for 23rd in the NFL with 19 takeaways in the regular season. The Eagles can’t afford to turn the ball over. It’s already a good guess that the Eagles will have a hard time moving the ball against a fierce defense. Points will be at a premium. Philly can’t give anything away. Keep in mind: Let’s ignore for a moment that Nick Foles played poorly in Week 16 with a “Monday Night Football” audience watching, then again in a quarter of a meaningless Week 17 game. Here are his stats from the other two-and-a-quarter games he has played since Carson Wentz went down: 53-for-78 (67.9 percent), 525 yards, five touchdowns, no interceptions, 108.1 rating. That’s not bad. We have to acknowledge the possibility that we’ve overreacted to that Week 16 game against the Raiders. The rest of the time Foles has been just fine. He’ll certainly be tested against a really good Vikings defense, but assuming the Foles we saw against the Raiders doesn’t reemerge, he’s good enough to keep Philadelphia in the game.

On December 11, the coach Doug Pederson had confirmed the league MVP candidate quarterback Carson Wentz would miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL, meaning the National Football Conference’s best team would be forced to confront the playoffs without its offensive centerpiece. “The Eagles just lost Carson Wentz, and their shot at the Super Bowl,” blared a Washington Post headliEagles in win-win situation with Nick Foles Tim McManus ESPN Staff Writer Close Follow on Twitter MINNEAPOLIS -- The first questions about quarterback Nick Foles' future came less than 12 hours after the Philadelphia Eagles' Super Bowl win over the New England Patriots. Is Carson Wentz still the starting quarterback? Will there be an open competition in training camp? Can a Super Bowl MVP go back to being a backup? "I knew I couldn't get off this stage without those questions," said coach Doug Pederson, fresh off outdueling Bill Belichick in a 41-33 win over the Pats.

Quarterback Nick Foles, making his first start for Philadelphia since Nov. 2, 2014 (he played for the Rams in 2015 and Chiefs in 2016), threw four touchdowns and no interceptions in the Eagles’ 34-29 come-from-behind win over the New York Giants.
