Praying for an Eagles victory: Deacon wears underdog mask during mass

The Eagles defeated the Vikings 21-10. The Eagles held Matt Ryan and the defending conference champs to just 10 points, stopping them near the goal line in Atlanta's final drive of the game.

Told that the Vikings believe they have the best defense in all the land, if not the universe and beyond, Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham laughed, figuratively bit his tongue as most present-day athletes are taught so well to do, and said: "If they think that, that's good for them".

The "Music City Miracle" brought on the first truly memorable video review in National Football League history. Not only have the Vikings gone 0-5 in their past five trips to the NFC title game, but they've suffered some heartbreaking losses. Jeffery has three outstanding games against the Vikings. During the regular season, Diggs had 64 receptions for 849 yards and eight touchdowns. On November 16, 2014, Jeffery had 11 receptions for 135 yards and one touchdown.

The Jaguars, who had not been to the playoffs in a decade before this season, are now one win away from reaching the Minnesota showpiece, live on Sky Sports, on Sunday, February 4.

And three of the four toughest to gain yards against are still around, too. In the other six games against the Vikings, Jeffery has 185 yards, a 30.8 yards per game average.

Federer Beats Bedene as Djokovic Dismisses Young in Return to Action
Federer, who has amassed nearly $112 million in career prizemoney, supported Djokovic's push for a bigger percentage of revenue for players.

Meanwhile, Philadelphia players like Lane Johnson and Chris Long have enjoyed wearing dog masks and encouraged fans to do the same at the game to mock the team's status as underdogs. I have said it many times, this team is very talented, and they do not take any team lightly. Whatever head coach Doug Pederson has done in that locker room should be bottled and sold on the open market. It's an emotional thing, it's something I've done my entire life. Does it apply to this game? "This is the longest I've played (in the postseason)". "The word "special" with this team, it really means that". "And we know going into this game that whoever's defense plays the best is going to win the game".

After last week's miracle walk-off finish for Minnesota, you can assume they will be playing with added motivation.

Current starting left tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai has been one of the, if not the most, scrutinized of the offensive linemen.

Nick Foles went searching for clarity, for guidance and for direction, but in time, he found the answer resided within him all along.

As the long-awaited weekend rolled in, so did a fumble by the NFL. If Vaitai can not keep Foles' blindside clean on Sunday, the Eagles' chances at advancing diminish greatly. Minnesota ranks first at defending running backs in the passing game and second in defending tight ends (per Football Outsiders' DVOA), which could lead to some ill-advised throws by Nick Foles, who won't have any security blankets to rely on. Playing together. Getting the rhythm. We've faced some tremendous defensive ends this year.
