Who Are Experts Picking In Vikings-Eagles NFC Championship?

Doug Pederson's Preseason Comparison Doesn't Look So Ridiculous Now

Who Are Experts Picking In Vikings-Eagles NFC Championship?

Tom Wolf have set their friendly wager over this weekend's NFC Championship Game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Philadelphia Eagles. If they are able to have success with that, they will be able to pressure Foles and force him to win the game, which is a good thing for the Vikings.

Saints coach Sean Payton said the officials "struggled" in Sunday's game, and he wished the referees had corralled players earlier in that moment.

While Foles' performance on Sunday will be instrumental in determining if the Eagles can defeat the Minnesota Vikings and get to Super Bowl LII, it isn't the most important for the Eagles. As dominant as Jacksonville has looked at times, the concerns in that area were deep enough to necessitate the Marcell Dareus trade in midseason, and Lewis has become a centerpiece for New England, logging double-digit touches in each of the Patriots' last 12 games.

The Vikings have some conference title game woes they need to overcome this Sunday, having lost their past five appearances, three of which came by seven points or less. And I assure you none of these suggestions will drive fans away in the manner in which we have seen them disappear during the current postseason.

"I know my role is very important because field position is huge, especially in the playoffs", Sherels said.

For Nick Foles, it's imperative that he stays within himself.

Quarterback Drew Brees and the Saints scored 24 second-half points to take a 24-23 lead with 25 seconds left. The point spread has been hovering around -3 in favor of the road Vikings.

At the start of the season, Foles was reserve to Carson Wentz - who was MVP favourite before season-ending injury - while Keenum was behind both Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Bradford on the Vikings' depth chart.

For the second consecutive week, and the third time when preparing for a game dating back to Week 17 against the Dallas Cowboys, the Eagles boarded buses at the NovaCare Complex and headed to Lincoln Financial Field for Friday's practice. If applied to a full season, it would be the NFL's worst offense this season.

WR Alshon Jeffery signals first down in the Eagles' 15-10 win over the Atlanta Falcons. Sendejo still has not cleared the concussion protocol and is limited as questionable. He had a Pro Football Focus grade of 87.3, making him the 11th-ranked safety in the NFL.

It would be an understatement to say that the Vikings secondary is good, hell, it would even be an understatement to say that their secondary is great.

Current starting left tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai has been one of the, if not the most, scrutinized of the offensive linemen. Spending 32 seasons in the Metrodome will do that to a team.

Dannell Ellerbe was the only Eagles player to miss practice on Wednesday.

Jenkins is joined by Rodney McLeod in the back end of the defense to form one of the most efficient safety tandems in the NFL.

Since [hiring Mike Zimmer in 2014], the Vikings have still been a better indoor team than outdoor team, going 18-7 inside over the last four seasons - including 8-1 this season at U.S. Bank Stadium, counting Sunday's playoff win. Both are guided by quarterbacks who were backups on their depth charts when this long journey began.
