It’s playoff Sunday, and the last weekend of football before the Super Bowl on February 4th.
The Eagles host another playoff game where they are the underdogs, and are fully playing into that mindset. Nick Foles looked terrible to start last weeks game, but calmed down enough to squeak out a win over the Falcons. The Vikings are completely different animal, and their defense will get theirs against the Eagles. This game will likely be a defensive battle, and will see a lot of work on the ground. Minnesota needed a miracle play at the end of the game last week to defeat the Saints. Hopefully it doesn’t come down to that this week, and the Vikings get the first home Super Bowl ever.
The police are greasing the light poles and warning local shop owners that they can’t protect them in Philadelphia. Win or lose Philly is going to burn tonight.
