Who will win the NFC Championship: Philadelphia Eagles vs. Minnesota Vikings?
Most experts expressed doubt about the Eagles' playoff odds when quarterback Carson Wentz went down with a torn ACL late in the regular season. While backup quarterback Nick Foles' last two regular seasons left a lot of questions, he stepped up and managed the game perfectly against the Atlanta Falcons, riding a hot defense to a 15-10 victory.
With the defense running on all cylinders, as it has all season, the Eagles should punch their first ticket to the Super Bowl since 2004.
With less than 10 seconds left, with the ball at their own 39-yard line, the Minnesota Vikings needed a miracle. They got one when Case Keenum threw a dart to Stefon Diggs, who slipped a would-be tackle from New Orleans Saints safety Marcus Williams to take the ball 61 yards for a walk-off touchdown and one of the greatest plays in the Minnesota Vikings history.
This team may have needed divine intervention against the Saints, but the Vikings are built to win in the playoffs with playmakers at every skill position and a defensive unit that was one of the league's best in 2017. If the Vikings are getting prayers answered like that, no mere mortal can stop them. Minnesota is going the Super Bowl.
