After the conference championship games, the winning teams will have two weeks to prepare for Super Bowl LII in Minnesota on February 4. Due to his track record, Case Keenum has had his work cut out for him turning fans into believers. That almost changed last Saturday in the divisional round of the playoffs against the Atlanta Falcons, but safeties Rodney McLeod and Malcolm Jenkins sniffed out the final fourth-down play pre-snap, and Mills defended Falcons receiver Julio Jones well enough to help force an incompletion in the end zone to secure the win. Though he struggled to get the ball in the end zone, he averaged 8.2 yards per attempt and did not turn the ball over. On defense, though, both teams' performances have transcended situation. However, Griffen will be facing All-Pro left tack Lane Johnson, who allowed one sack during the regular season.
The Jets may go the free-agent route and pay a king's ransom for Kirk Cousins, who is expected to be available after playing out his deal with Washington.
The reactions to Stefon Digg's unlikely game-winning touchdown to send the Minnesota Vikings past the New Orleans Saints to the NFC championship game have been pouring in since late Sunday. There is one game left to enter the promise land and the Eagles are able to play in front of their home fans which is a huge advantage for a young team.
Once again, it is not hard to understand why.
But keeping in mind the task at hand, the overlying message from Vikings players and personnel is that there will be time-later-to celebrate. It was only the fourth game-winning touchdown on the final play in National Football League history.
The good news for the Eagles offense is their defense doesn't require them to light up the scoreboard.
Backup quarterback Nick Foles did an admirable job against the Falcons, completing 23 of 30 passes for 246 yards and a 100.1 passer rating. And to go through that and to make that decision, it wasn't easy. The Falcons had absolutely nothing going in the run game up the middle, despite having one of the better one-two running back punches in the game.

"If it's to the point where you're slipping and you go out for pregame warm-ups and you don't feel comfortable with the normal cleats then, yeah, you definitely have that option to have the longer cleat", wide receiver Adam Thielen said. "[We explain to coaches that] we were about to run the route, but [Newman] said he wanted to get some extra cardio in, so we let him hop in there". Minnesota jumped on the Saints and looked to be much the better team, up, 17-0.
"That was three days ago, it's time to move on to Philadelphia", Zimmer said-and quarterback Case Keenum agrees. Nigel Bradham and Mychal Kendricks were both active in the second level, and the Eagles' secondary played among its finest games of the year. If they are within striking distance in the fourth quarter of a low scoring game, they will have a shot at stealing a win. As of Wednesday afternoon, the Vikings were 3.5-point favorites.
So, there is a chance. Atlanta's offense has been lackluster this season while the Vikings offense has been explosive.
Keenum said he has heard from some current and former players but wouldn't name them.
He's completed at least 70 percent of his throws in eight games and threw multiple interceptions (2) just twice. Unfortunately, it turns out that a 2T Wentz jersey costs $50, which is insane, so I settled for a long-sleeve Eagles shirt at a much more reasonable price.
