With that in mind, let's dive into three key things to watch for in the NFC title game. After throwing an interception in each of the final two games of the regular season, Foles did not turn the ball over against the Falcons.

Eagles defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, a three-time Pro Bowler, said he likes the idea of a slugfest with the league's top defense. "They're going to win".

"It's awesome. I love Case, he's a great guy - I spent a little time with him in Houston [with the Texans]". Long story short, the Eagles' offense has been stagnant because of Foles. All 10 of Atlanta's points against the Eagles came off turnovers: A Jay Ajayi fumble led to a Falcons field goal and a muffed punt resulted in a Falcons touchdown. But now, facing a team that boasts a defense as impressive (maybe more so) than their own, they'll need to hold on to that underdog mentality for at least one more week if they hope to win their first NFC title since 2005. "And that was it for me", said Foles, who was 23 for 30 for 246 yards against the Falcons. I think (Rhodes) is a much better player. "And sometimes even tempo, hurry-up, no-huddle offense can get your quarterback into that kind of rhythm". Since Week 8, the Eagles have given up more than 200 yards passing just twice and are surrendering an average of 192.2 per game. Led by Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, along with tight end Kyle Rudolph, Keenum had no shortage of players to distribute the ball to.

The Vikings will be coming to Philly with plenty of momentum, after their exciting victory over the New Orleans Saints in the divisional playoffs last weekend. I've been really impressed with watching them on tape.

Neither one was a Week 1 starter, but here we are. And that play you're referring to there in the fourth quarter was huge. That timid quarterback is still in the Vikings uniform and the Philadelphia Eagles hard-hitting defense must make him reveal his true self. On December 12, 2013, Jeffery had 12 receptions for 249 yards and two touchdowns. "We talk about (playing) complementary football", Priefer said. "I think Case does a good job as far as moving in the pocket, being able to extend plays with his legs and you know just being able to trust himself going out there".

Shurmur will attack the flanks of Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz's wide-9 alignment with RBs Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon, particularly behind LT Riley Reiff and converted LG Mike Remmers.

Corbyn and Labour membership on collision course over Brexit
Mr Corbyn told ITV's Peston on Sunday: "The single market is dependent on membership of the European Union". Elections to rather obscure internal Labour committees rarely make the headlines.

"They've got a good front seven, a really good front seven, and that's where the run game starts for both sides", Blount said.

For the second consecutive week, and the third time when preparing for a game dating back to Week 17 against the Dallas Cowboys, the Eagles boarded buses at the NovaCare Complex and headed to Lincoln Financial Field for Friday's practice. Dog masks and all.

You can squint and see how Jacksonville might win here; that defense is no joke.

We'll be keeping a close eye on how the Jaguars defend Rob Gronkowski. At the end of the day, respect is not given, we gotta go out and take it like we've been doing all year.

But I do understand what's going on here.

Fortunately for the Eagles, almost every available player on the active roster will be ready to play on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship Game.
