It felt like I was getting spoiled in 1998, when my fandom was still new and the Vikings’ offensive juggernaut led the team to a 15-1 record during the regular season.
However, the Eagles are wise not to look ahead. He might have won the MVP award. Reid is 1-4 in the postseason while coaching the Chiefs and has not made it past the divisional round of the playoffs.
The fact that Keenum had led the Vikings to a 6-2 start in Bradford’s absence made the news that he had arthroscopic knee surgery and was placed on injured reserve easier to stomach.
The Star Tribune now has. Reaching the Super Bowl wasn’t even a consideration. The Eagles beat the Vikings 21-10. And then have to deal with the reality of being winless in four previous Super Bowl trips.
Expect that field to be a factor in this game, certainly since Pro Football Focus came out with this stat on Wednesday: Case Keenum has an 88.7 passer rating outdoors this year, compared to 105.1 in a dome. Their main weapon that has defeated opponents is their defense.
January 19, 2003: Tampa Bay Buccaneers 27, Eagles 10. Head coach Mike Zimmer mentioned the play Monday press conference as a miscue that his team would have to clean up. Frankly, I’m terrified – and with good reason. First, it has the full answer from Zimmer on what he thinks of the Eagles.
“I mean, it’s right there”. He joked about having spoken to his mother, Stephanie Diggs, who watched the game on television at her Maryland home. We ran the ball efficiently when we needed to. “So that’s all. When I tell you I have no time to consider anything else other than how we’re preparing a game plan to beat the Vikings, that’s really all we’re concerned about”. We’ll just try to figure it out. They compiled a ton of stats to get you prepared for this weekend’s games. Some of the things they do are very tough to defend.
“Overall, they’re solid”, Keenum said of the Eagles defense.
It’s hard to believe Sunday’s game won’t be a defensive struggle with two of the top defenses in the league on the field. After his career at the University of Houston almost ended with a torn ACL, he recovered, played his final season as a grad student, and worked his way up as an undrafted free agent on the Texans’ practice squad before earning a roster spot. “You just go out there and be yourself”. I enjoy everything we do. Their defense is legit. I know what it’s like when you win it and I know what it’s like when you lose it. And so, after a moment that triggered jubilation across the state, a team that seems to relish the grind of an National Football League season moves on. Despite the home-field advantage of near-silence while calling the signals, Keenum was hit from every angle, and the Saints often got pressure right up the middle, which typically spells disaster. “They have put their teams in position to be in the NFC Championship game”. It was also the worst second-half performance from their defense all season. He shattered every record held by the school’s most famous alumnus, but Drew Brees’s shadow still loomed large. Quarterback Nick Foles seldom looked deep, and the Eagles relied on third-down conversions. Philadelphia had a bruising defensive front and the number one run defense in yards allowed. In his two seasons, he has proven he will punt when he feels like punting, will call a fourth-down play when he feels like calling a fourth-down play, and will coach the way he wants to coach, no matter how sour the chorus.
The Philadelphia Eagles overcame a last-second attempt by the Atlanta Falcons to advance to this year’s NFC Championship Game. After Nick Easton suffered a season ending injury on week 16, Minnesota shuffled their line and fielded this newest configuration that features their key free agent acquisitions lining up next to one another on the left side.
As an early 100th birthday present, Phil’s family is taking him to Sunday’s NFC Championship game at the Linc.
Trades in the 2015 season began to merge the careers of all three quarterbacks. At the same time, however, they’re undoubtedly wishing they were the ones playing on Sunday, not watching from home.
Unpopular as a former Eagle and untested as a head coach, few were going to have to prove more to fans and critics before being accepted. As of this writing, 52% of the money for this game is on the Vikings.
