The Philadelphia Eagles faced up against the Minnesota Vikings in Philadelphia for the NFC Championship and for a spot in Super Bowl 52.
This was one of the most talked about games all week, with many pulling for the Vikings and actually calling the 15-3 Eagles the underdogs. After a crazy finish against the New Orleans Saints, the Vikings were coming into this game with the much-needed edge and wanted to become the first NFL team to play a Super Bowl in their hometown.
The game started off in the Vikings favor with a quick touchdown pass from Case Keenum to Kyle Rudolph making it 7-0 but the Eagles would be on the board soon enough after a pick-6 to bring the game to a 7-7 tie. But the Vikings just couldn’t get their groove back and the Eagles took full advantage.
Scoring 17 points in the second quarter alone and scoring a touchdown in both the 3rd and 4th, Nick Foles threw for 3 TD passes for this blowout win 38-7 to bring the Eagles to the Super Bowl stage for the first time since 2004 breaking a 13 year hiatus.
2004 Super Bowl Rematch
The Eagles will take on the former Super Bowl champs The New England Patriots. This could be Tom Bradys 6th Super Bowl win, which would make him most super bowl rings for any quarterback in the NFL. Or it could also be the first Super Bowl win for the Eagles.
Many people might not know this interesting fact but the Patriots and Eagles faced off in the Super Bowl back in 2004 and the Patriots came out with the 24-21 win.
Will this be a repeat? Or is it time for a new champion?
Super Bowl 52 will be in Minnesota on February 3rd, on NBC.
