Vikings have the best defense in the league.
Foles isn’t Drew Brees
Foles isn’t even Keenum as strange of a comp as that would’ve been 4 months ago.

No idea who wins. After yesterday us Vikings fans are due for 70 more years of utter heartbreak. Things like that don’t happen to us without major consequences.

I think most Eagles fans didn't want to see Drew Brees come to town. Lots of things pointed in Philly's direction. The whole team & the town have embraced the Rocky/underdog mantra. The Linc is a tough, tough place to play. The defense averages letting up 13 points a game at home. Take away the punt "muff" and the defense allowed the Falcons 3 points on Saturday night - think about that - "Matty Ice", Julio Jones & crew - 3 points.

Eagles have never lost a home playoff game as an underdog & are 3-0 lifetime in the playoffs vs the Vikes. The last time the Eagles made the Super Bowl in '05, the teams they beat to get there - Minnesota & Atlanta.

Welcome Vikings to the pit of misery - Philly Dilly....

Watched the game last night with some diehard Vikings fans and the expressions on their faces as the 4th quarter progressed went from resignation of another heartbreak loss to WTF. I have never seen a group of people more speechless in just what happened. Pretty sure one of them still doesn't believe it happened and it is all a cruel trick by the football gods.

That said, I agree with you on it is anybody's game. Vikings on cloud 9 vs. the Eagles. As long as the Patriots don't win I am good.

The first thing I did this am was literally check twitter to make sure it actually happened and wasn’t just some sort of actual wet dream.

I was so in shock I wouldn’t have even had a cool reaction video taken. I was literally speechless for over an hour after the game. Didn’t have any words of any kind

Somebody in the group (non-Vikings fan) did try to take a reaction video, just didn't turn out the way they hoped. Everybody was speechless and just standing there. Would of made a great still shot though. titled "Reactions of Viking fans to a Playoff Win".

Eagles the home dog again. I can live with that. Vikes don't have the offense to blow this thing open so this game will be close throughout. Homefield advantage is real, with the crowd noise, with the grass field, and with the weather (won't be frigid by Saturday, gametime temp will probably be in the 40's with the late start). Both teams with very good defenses and suspect offenses. Maybe the first team to 10 points wins.

Good Vikings win, usually they get heart broken in the NFC Championship game or super bowl, but it's been 40 years since the last Super Bowl for them.

Vikings 20
Eagles 19

I won't even watch. Vikings are headed back to be the first team to ever host a Super Bowl. Eagles don't have a prayer.

It really sucks for any true football fans that the weather in both CCGs is going to be balmy by late January on the NE I-95 corridor standards. Both games look to be played in upper 40s temps.

Would have been cool to put soft Florida and dome teams out in some weather.

Jags didn't look soft, though, playing in the cold that was Pittsburgh yesterday. They have the type of game (strong defense, run the ball, pass only when you have to) that does well in the cold.

Florida. Dome. Soft.

Yeah, you're right.

Hey, serious question. Are the Steelers afraid to fire Tomlin because he's black?

Well, they were playing the Steelers, who are soft themselves (despite no dome or Florida) so maybe they just looked tougher relatively speaking?

Should the Eagles happen to upset the Vikings, I'd much rather have a chance to avenge the 2004 season Super Bowl loss to the admitted cheating Patriots of that season.

I mean, a championship's a championship, but think back to the Phillies in 2008. It would have been even sweeter to beat the Yankees or BoSox instead of the Rays.

Florida sports teams (other than the Dolphins) just feel cheap to me. It's an expansion state. And their fans all suck. They're second only to California in the crappy fans department.

Yea if the Eagles win the Super Bowl nobody is going to care who it was against. If we'd had won multiple Super Bowls before I'm with your point - but come 2018 just win.

Conversely, when they lose the Super Bowl (and they will if they get there - you know it and so do I), it will hurt less to lose to the Patriots as well.

Losing to Jacksonville in the Super Bowl would be at least ten suicides in Philly in the next 24 hours. Losing to Brady again would just be a couple.

Yes

They are wanting to fire Haley since they put up 545 yards and 2 points on the best defense in the NFL.......makes sense because hes the whitegoat.....................

I already knew the answer, but was just checking if anyone beside you had the courage to answer.

Black coaches are kept waaaaaay too long in the NFL when they underachieve: Art Shell, Denny Green, Herm Edwards, Romeo Crennel and the poster child: Marvin Lewis

There's obviously a reason for that.

Also, is Andy Reid part black?

I dont think Tomlin should be fired nor Haley but they might want to look at the DC position. They just lost to a MUCH better team and that game wasnt as close as the score indicated.
