Jaguars and Patriots on CBS All Access
Against all odds, the Jacksonville Jaguars are here. But to be honest, they do not care about your chances either. After dismantling the Steelers in a 45-42 shootout, the Jaguars will seek to defeat the other AFC titan: the team that has just defeated the Titans. The Patriots are clearly the Goliath in this match, as Tom Brady is looking for a playoff ground populated by Nick Foles, Case Keenum and Blake Bortles. There’s no problem with these quarterbacks, and Bortles was stellar against the Steelers, but in a playoff series that has also boasted of players like Ben Roethlisberger, Drew Brees and Matt Ryan, it’s a little surprising .

For the Patriots, it’s not new. This will be their seventh consecutive appearance in the AFC championship game, and they have won three of the previous six. Getting to the Super Bowl can start feeling old for Pats fans, but it seems to motivate them even more. Brady had another great season, and despite a defense that has fought from the beginning, the Patriots have had another season in first place.  AFC Championship Game They dismantled the Titans in the division’s round, and seek to do the same against another opponent in the AFC South (who would have thought that the way the Patriots in the Super Bowl involve two South AFC teams) at the beginning of the season?) It’s a Cinderella season for the Jaguars, but the Patriots want to remind them that midnight can attack very quickly.

Philadelphia Eagles Vs. Minnesota Vikings: Expert Picks And 5 Best Bets For NFC Championship Game

You wouldn’t have looked silly whatsoever taking a Philadelphia Eagles team helmed by Carson Wentz and a Vikings team with a resurgent Sam Bradford to make it to the NFC Championship game.

The fact that Nick Foles and Case Keenum have taken these teams one step away from a Super Bowl appearance may look like a longshot on paper, but if you examine the QB’s stats and the overall teams, this is far from a shock. We have the two top teams in most defensive stat categories that matter in a game where even a 38.5 total sounds high.

I have heard from many casual bettors via social media and email that they are nervous playing either of these title game matchups, but are especially queasy about the NFC with a team coming off a miracle ending against a team galvanized behind weeks of disrespect from Vegas and the TV pundits.

It’s a spot where some last-second expert advice may be a welcome sight. Zack Jones of SportsBookReview.com is here to tell you there are plenty of strong plays here if you look at the trends. Beyond you make that bet, here’s some matchup insight, betting trends and five best bets before the basic plays for the NFC Championship.

NFL Playoffs: Weather forecast for NFC championship game – Eagles vs. Vikings in Philadelphia

How is the weather forecast shaping up for the NFC championship game between the  Eagles and the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday? The short answer: Much better than last weekend’s frigid winter scene.

While temperatures took a nose dive during last week’s divisional matchup between the Eagles and the Atlanta Falcons, with wind chills in the low 20s, this Sunday is shaping up to be a much milder day — thanks to a mini-January thaw.

Pre-game weather outlook

Early tailgaters at Lincoln Financial Field can look forward to a comfortable afternoon, with mostly sunny skies and temperatures making a solid run for 50 degrees. In case you’re from out of town, that’s warm for January in Philadelphia. In fact, it’s 10 degrees above normal for Jan. 21.

Kickoff weather outlook  

By kickoff time — scheduled for 6:40 p.m. on Sunday — the air temperature in Philadelphia will be about 45 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. Although clouds will be on the increase during the game, there’s only a slight chance of rain showers.

The National Weather Service says there’s a 15 percent chance of rain during the game, and AccuWeather is projecting a 13 percent chance of rain Sunday night. If you were placing a bet on the weather, go with dry.

Temperatures are expected to remain in the low 40s throughout the game, with only a slight breeze.

What to wear

Even though temperatures will be mild for January, it’s still the middle of winter. So, once the sun goes down, you will feel a chill in the air.

Our recommendation: Dress in several light layers. It’s always better to over-dress at a football game; you can strip off a layer if you start feeling warm. Don’t forget a light pair of gloves to keep your hands warm, and a hat or hood for your head.

Philly weather stats

The National Weather Service says the coldest temperature ever recorded in Philadelphia on Jan. 21 was 6 degrees below zero, back in 1985. The warmest was 62 degrees, in 1959.

Philly’s normal high on Jan. 21 is 40 degrees and its normal low is 25 degrees. The forecast high is 51, and the forecast low is 36. (The coldest temperature of the day will be in the early morning, not during the game.)

 

Vikings vs Eagles 2018 NFC Championship: Picks, how to watch, injury report

Since January 1967, there have been a total of 51 Super Bowls played, and the Vikings and Eagles have combined to win exactly zero of those.

The first step toward ending that drought will take place on Sunday when the two teams meet in Philadelphia with a trip to Super Bowl LII on the line. Although the Vikings pulled off a miracle win in the divisional round, the true miracle would be if they actually won in the NFC Championship.

The game against the Eagles will mark the sixth time since 1977 that Minnesota has advanced this far in the postseason, and Vikings fans will be hoping that this week’s game doesn’t turn out like the team’s five previous trips. Not only have the Vikings gone 0-5 in their past five trips to the NFC title game, but they’ve suffered some heartbreaking losses. Three of the five losses came by one score, and two of the five losses came in overtime. Brett Favre’s interception in January 2010 and Gary Anderson’s missed field goal in January 1999 are two of the reason why the Vikings have one of the most tortured fan bases in the NFL.

Of course, fans in Philly also know what it’s like to be a tortured fan base. The Eagles have been to the NFC title game five times since 2000 and they only made it to the Super Bowl once in that span.

It’s almost feels like fate brought these two teams together for this one game. Not only do we have the miracle-makers from Minnesota, but we have the underdogs from Philly — two teams connected by their star-crossed starting quarterbacks who were teammates less than two years ago.

Below, you’ll find how you can watch Sunday’s game.

How to watch NFC Championship 2018

Date: Sunday, Jan. 21
Time: 6:40 p.m. ET
Location: Lincoln Financial Field — Philadelphia
Channel: Fox (check local listings)

Will Foles be able to do anything against the Vikings’ defense?

Despite the fact that they’re the top seed in the NFC, the Eagles will be going into Sunday’s game as the underdog, and a big part of that is because of Nick Foles. Although Foles was efficient in Philly’s 15-10 divisional playoff win over the Faclons last week, the vaunted defense of the Vikings will be a much bigger test.

“I think the big thing with them, they’ve been together for a while, the players have played together,” Foles said of the Vikings this week. “They play fast. You don’t see them bust coverages. They communicate back and forth really well and they are on the same page. It’s hard to key in on one thing or the other. First off, they have a lot of talent. They have a lot of talented guys, whether it’s the corners, the secondary, D-Line, linebackers, there’s lot of speed. I’ve been really impressed with watching them on tape.”

One thing the Vikings do well is stop the run. The Vikings surrendered just 83.6 yards per game on the ground in 2017, which ranked second in the NFL, and that number is a big reason why the Eagles might have to rely on Foles this week. If Jay Ajayi and LeGarrette Blount can’t find room to run, it’s going to be up to Foles to keep the Eagles offense moving.

Can Keenum be productive against the Eagles defense?

The fact that two former Rams quarterbacks are facing off against each other in the NFC title game is so odd, Case Keenum felt the need to joke about it this week.

“I know this is what all you guys predicted back in the day was a Foles versus Keenum NFC Championship, so good job to all you guys that predicted that,” Keenum said Wednesday.

After throwing the biggest touchdown pass of his life in the Vikings’ miracle win over the Saints, Keenum is going to have to come up big again if the Vikings are going to advance to the Super Bowl for the first time in 41 years. The Vikings will be going up against an Eagles defense that’s built to stop the run. During the 2017 season, the Eagles ranked No. 1 in the NFL, surrendering just 79.2 yards per game. However, if Philly had one weakness during the regular season, it was stopping the pass.

Of course, calling it a weakness might not even be fair because it definitely didn’t look like a weakness in a divisional round where the Falcons only totaled 195 yards passing. The fact of the matter is that if Keenum has a big game, the Vikings are probably going to win. During the regular season, the Vikings went 8-1 when he threw for 225 yards or more, but just 4-2 when he didn’t.

Finally, one thing to keep and eye on in this game is how the Vikings react to playing outdoors. They’ve only played outdoors once since Dec. 11 and they didn’t even get to practice outside this week because coach Mike Zimmer didn’t like the look of the team’s outdoor field.

“The (outdoor practice) field wasn’t in good enough shape,” Zimmer said, via the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

That might not sound like a big deal, but another indoor team (the Falcons) definitely had trouble last week playing on the slippery surface at Lincoln Financial Field. The surface was so bad that the Eagles have brought a new one in for Sunday’s NFC Championship game.
