Some experts and fans have written the Eagles off as an afterthought, but if the Vikings do this on Sunday, they could be in for a rude awakening.
Wolf also says the Pennsylvania State Capitol Building in Harrisburg will be lit green starting Saturday night and will remain that way through the game Sunday in a show of support for the Eagles. Remember, these are the fans who threw snowballs at Santa Claus during a 1968 game.
The Vikings have released the club's final injury report for Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field.
To keep that from happening the Vikings are going to have to travel to a very hostile environment in Philadelphia and play an excellent Eagles team that has a lot to prove.
The weather forecast for Sunday in Philadelphia calls for a high of 50 and a low of 37 with a 10 percent chance of precipitation.
The forecast for the fans is noise.
"Typically, when you're good defensively, you're going to stay in the ballgames", Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. I'm assuming that this is probably going to be the best game that he's prepared for, just getting back in the rhythm of things.
"Didn't think it would be all that insane, but the minute I got into the office all my work friends were talking about it and asking me who we were gonna root for and what it was like to have Beau having a chance to play in it", father Matt Allen said. Neither team has won the big game, but only one of them will get a shot against the victor of the Patriots and Jaguars on February 4, 2018. Overall, Minnesota is 2-10 over its last 12 postseason road games.
Nick Foles threw a deep pass into the wind on the first play from scrimmage against the Falcons, LeGarrette Blount scored the only touchdown on fourth down and wide receiver Nelson Agholor ran 21 yards on a new play. Maybe it was this early success that created the idea that cold weather could help the Eagles win games. Great football player. Prepares well, extremely talented, big arm and he's really, really athletic, too. "They make a bunch of noise, but our philosophy is always to ignore the noise".
METAIRIE, La. - Sean Payton deserves a hearty "Skol" clap for his latest gesture. It was the fact offensive coordinator Brian Billick did not have his normal investment in preparation, as he looked ahead to becoming coach of the Baltimore Ravens. As of this week the Eagles have hosted 21 total home playoff games, with a record of 14-7, pretty good.
"They're passionate, educated fans", Shurmur said.
For that to happen, Minnesota would need to win at Philadelphia in Sunday's NFC championship game and the Patriots win at home over Jacksonville in the AFC title game.
