Vikings at Eagles - Live Blog

It’s going to be a battle of defenses for the NFC Championship Game between the Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles.

NFL: NFC Divisional Playoff-Atlanta Falcons at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Two teams that have never won a Super Bowl will square off for a chance to finally win one. The Minnesota Vikings are 0-4 in the big game and the Philadelphia Eagles are 0-2. They both have championship caliber defenses, so this might be the year one of them hoists the Lombardi Trophy.

The biggest problem for each team is their quarterback. I personally don’t trust Case Keenum and I especially don’t trust Nick Foles. The key to this game will be the running game. Whoever finds more room to run is going to have things opened up for their quarterback.

I’m going with the Eagles in this one. They are at home and are playing with a huge defensive chip on their shoulder. After being a rare home underdog last week to the Atlanta Falcons, the defense single-handedly shut down the high flying Falcons offense for the win. I expect more of the same today.
