This sunday night we are heading to the Lincoln Financial Field, where the Minnesota Vikings (14-3) are visiting the Philladelphia Eagles (14-3)for the NFC championship game.
Minnesota Vikings vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Last week the Vikings came out with a walk off touchdown at the last second to beat the Saints 29-24, QB Case Keenum ended with 318 yards – 1 Touchdown – 1 pick, Murray 19 rushes – 50 yards – 1 Touchdown and Diggs 6 receptions – 137 yards with the winner 61 yards touchdown.
On the other hand the Eagles as we all know rested on the wildcard weekend since they were No 1 seed in the NFC, last week they beat the surging Atlanta Falcons in a cold night at home on a low scoring game 15 – 10. Nick Foles 77% completion – 246 yards – 0 TD – 0 INT with Ajayi carrying the offensive with 15 rushes – 54 yards and 3 receptions – 44 yards.
We are going to enjoy two of the best defenses in the NFL, Philladelphia ranked 4th (4904 yards) and Minnesota 1st (4415 yards). On the offense we got Eagles 7th with 5852 total yards and Vikings 11th 5710 yards.
Eagles are 5-1 (handicap) in their last 6 home games versus a team with a winning road record, 9-2 (handicap) in their last 11 games on grass, 6-2 (handicap) in their last 8 games after allowing less than 90 rushing yards in their previous game and 7-2 (handicap) in their last 9 following a handicap win.
It has not gone very well for Minnesota in lately meetings against Philladelphia, Vikings are 2-6 (handicap) in their last 8 meetings against the Eagles and 1-4 (handicap) in their last 5 meetings in this stadium.
In a game with two very even teams every mistake it’s gonna cost, in this case we are taking the home team and the points. Philladelphia without Carson Wentz they still seem a very well constructed team and they keep getting the job done at home where they went 8-1 this season, let’s roll with the home team and the hostil atmosphere.
PICK: Philladelphia Eagles +3
