Terence Newman does not rule out return even if Vikings win title

Following the NFL's season of carnage that claimed the likes of, among others, Aaron Rodgers, Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor, J.J. Watt, DeShaun Watson, Odell Beckham Jr. and Joe Thomas, this year's final four all overcame not only the odds - "Minneapolis Miracle, anyone?" - but devastating injuries to key starters.

More precisely, on whichever quarterback can keep his wits on a night when defense wins championships is nearly certain to rule. It has the more complete linebackers with Anthony Barr and the better of the Kendricks brothers, Eric.

"I wish I could just wake up tomorrow and feel like I did September 9", Robinson said, "but I understand it's going to be a process". They were fourth in yards (306.5) and fourth in points (18.4). Now he has a chance to lead the Eagles to a Super Bowl. How the Patriots fare on this front also could be the determining factor in whether the offense is able to negate the Jaguars' formidable pass rush. They just mix it in.

If Philadelphia sports talk radio is any indication, Eagles fans have dismissed fears their team can't win without Wentz. Safety Andrew Sendejo, meanwhile, is on track to play in Sunday's NFC title game despite suffering a concussion. Fletcher Cox can't be blocked, says Eagles teammate Malcolm Jenkins, himself a guy who pops up all over the field.

Hearing about Minnesota's defense all week is extra motivation for Philadelphia, which is a home underdog for the second straight game.

"It was great to get momentum with our defense coming back out to start the second half", Pederson continued. "Our coach told us to check our cleats before the game and you better be ready to go". Obviously, Keenum has had no problem having success when pressure isn't on him, and he's really put together a strong season. Foles is 3-1 since MVP candidate Carson Wentz tore his ACL. Yet the Jaguars can't derail Tom Brady without an answer for the consistent barrage of short passes to running backs.

"We've got to make Nick Foles win the game", Griffen said.


Case Keenum and the Vikings won in impressive fashion last week, but can they find a way to stay level in this game, on the road?

"That's a play we practice all the time", said Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, who went 22-for-36 for 210 yards and a touchdown. Philadelphia gave him a four-year, $52 million extension during the season.

Vogel will record the Eagles-Vikings game on his DVR at home, but he fears he'll hear in-game updates while he's on the plane. Their father, Marvin, was UCLA's leading rusher in 1970 and 1971 and went on to play in the CFL.

As Philadelphia advances to the NFC Championship Game, the Falcons, who held a 10-9 lead at halftime in this game, will spend the offseason thinking what might have been. Family members have been known to wear split jerseys to support both players.

"We've got a bunch of fighters on this team", Zimmer said.

NOT YET: The Vikings are 0-3 against the Eagles in the postseason.

By Thursday donations had surpassed $150,000 dollars, and as such, per a promise made by Morstead himself, the Pro Bowl punter will fly to Minnesota to personally deliver a check to the Children's Hospital of Minnesota.
