NFC Championship Game: Minnesota Vikings vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Come watch the NFC Conference Championship Game with us.

NFL: NFC Championship-Minnesota Vikings at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The AFC is set. The Patriots will be playing in two weeks for Super Bowl LII. Now it’s time to determine their opponent.

The Minnesota Vikings may be playing in Philadelphia, but they’re the favorites this week against the NFC’s one-seed: The Philadelphia Eagles.

The Eagles, much like the Jaguars in the AFC, have embraced their underdog status ever since Carson Wentz went down with a season-ending injury. They upset the Falcons last week with a 15-10 defensive battle and they’re hoping to repeat such a performance against a good Vikings offense.

The entire town of Minneapolis is probably still buzzing from last week’s miracle, but don’t get it twisted: They’re going to be ready on Sunday. Led by one of the best defenses in the league, along with a shockingly good season from Case Keenum, this Vikings team is poised to compete with anyone in this league.

Kickoff is soon. Come enjoy the game with us:

Date/Time: Sunday, January 21, 2018 — 6:40 p.m. ET
