Philadelphia Eagles Heading to Super Bowl LII After 38-7 Win Over Minnesota

PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Eagles will play in their first Super Bowl in 13 years after defeating the Minnesota Vikings 38-7 in the NFC Championship Game.

The Eagles will play the defending champion New England Patriots, who earlier defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Championship.

Just about everyone counted the Eagles out when quarterback Carson Wentz went down. They were even home underdogs twice as the #1 seed in the NFC, including in this NFC title game against Minnesota.

The Vikings were coming off that miracle win over the Saints. Both teams thought this is the year they win their first Super Bowl. The Vikings were trying to become the first team ever to host the championship game.

But to do so, they’d need to be the first “dome” team ever to win a conference championship outdoors. It would not happen.

In a battle between two dominant defenses, only one looked dominant. A pick six tied the game early. Philly won the turnover battle 3-0.

And the day after his 29th birthday, Nick Foles played the game of his life. He went 26-for-33 for 352 yards and three scores, two of them to Alshon Jeffery, earning a quarterback rating of 141.4.

This was a blowout. The Eagles won 38-7.

Philly is looking for its first NFL championship since 1960.

The last time the Eagles made it to the Super Bowl was in 2005. Coincidentally, it was against New England. The Patriots won that game 24-21.

Super Bowl LII is February 4.

    Eagles suck as a franchise in Super Bowls ! They NEVER win the BIG ONE when they get a chance, this time will be no different ! Even if they lead New England at start of 4th Quarter, they will still blow it ! NEVER count on the Eagles, Bengals, Vikings, or Panthers to EVER win the Super Bowl, anyone that does is FANTASIZING ! Not that I would not want to see an Egales Victory, I am just pointing out the truth ! Just give Brady ring #6 now ! Save us all now

    SuperBowl LII = Losers X 2….. Here we go again, with the 2 teams that 95% of all football fans can’t stand. What a waste of the “Championship” Another Superbowl that MOST will not watch!

    Skooks are really confused watching football without boys of 6-17 age range. High school sports REALLY popular there. Dateline should investigate

    all the white-trash coming out of the woodwork in the skook with the eagles win. Kmart needs to be brought back at the skook mall asap to sell stained Nick Foles jerseys.

    The NFL has developed a soft spot for thug life, therefore is no longer of interest to me. Other than the opportunity to express my disinterest. How is it, they can beat their wives, girlfriends and children while receiving inconsequential suspensions yet claim moral high ground on other social issues with the noted exception of dog fighting. Now that’s funny! ROFLMAO!

  • Taking That Knee

    The above clip is the most football I’ve watched since NFL players took the knee. I would rather watch hamsters on an exercise wheel than waste my time supporting a bunch of petulant, overpaid thugs. Naw, man……no, thanks.
