X-factors for Eagles against Vikings

They need to return to Earth quickly or they'll crash-and-burn if they're not ready to face the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game on Sunday (3:40 p.m. PT/6:40 p.m. ET, KPTV-12, FOX). Blake Bortles, Case Keenum and Nick Foles are all playing on Championship Sunday, and that's been a surprise.

With the NFC Championship on the line, and a trip to the Super bowl, Vikings fans are quick to predict a Minnesota win at the Linc Sunday. He has more than three against just one other team.

"Do your job every play, and that's really all it takes", Birk said. Furthermore, he was 7-0 in games where he was sacked just once or not at all.

The victor of the NFC Championship will face either the New England Patriots or the Jacksonville Jaguars, who play earlier today. And while players like Alshon Jeffery and Zach Ertz will receive most of the attention from the Vikings on defense, one member of the Eagles that could end up making a huge difference is Torrey Smith. Sunday's game will be the the biggest test thus far. "A lot of what we did (against Los Angeles), the way we dominated in that game, was the momentum that we gained coming out of Minnesota and beating a great Viking team that year".

"I think they can win", said Quincy Harris.

Luckily, the Vikings defense isn't known for turnovers and have only forced 10 in their eight road games this season. Case Keenum and Nick Foles. At first glance, it seems a little low.

"Last year, we hit an emotional chord with audiences as we provided three heroes with an unforgettable experience and helped reunite them with their families", said Dean Evans, CMO, Hyundai Motor America.

The Eagles and Vikings finished the regular season with 13-3 records.

While it may be too much to put a large amount of pressure on one position group, the running backs are crucial to Foles' success as the Eagles try to replicate a game plan loaded with short throws from the divisional-round win over the Atlanta Falcons. They have both done enough this season to get their teams where they are, and it will be interesting to see how they both play under the bright lights of an NFC title game.

Now, before anyone panics, a couple of fellows named Tom Brady and Bill Belichick still stand between us and the End of Days, not to mention the pesky Philadelphia Eagles and their fanbase, which has somehow managed to grow even more unhinged over the last five days. "They just stick together and find a way and it's been that way all season", Pederson said on the eve of the game. You have to make sacrifices for the betterment of the team.
