It's on to Philly for the Vikings.

Now, as his team prepares to play in the NFC Championship game this upcoming Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, Pederson is the only head coach still standing from the six coaches hired that offseason. We're 60 minutes away but at the same time, we've got to win those 60 minutes in order to get there.

The Eagles defense, featuring Kendricks' brother Michael at outside linebacker, is almost as stout as Minnesota's, meaning points could come at a premium in Sunday's matchup. Sure the argument can be made he didn't light up the scoreboard with points or stats but Nick Foles did just enough to lead the Eagles to the win.

"They haven't been a huge pressure team". His greatest drive of the game though came late in the second quarter. "All 11 guys they line up and even the guys that they bring in to play are all solid players". We have our work cut out for us getting the ball out and running the ball. They also have issues to address on special teams, which lately have turned into a mini-liability with fumbles and Jake Elliott's PAT insecurities. "Their linebackers run well".

Unfortunately for the Eagles, who traditionally play well the way he calls games, Blakeman is doing the Patriots-Jaguars game.

Now, though, they're a middle-of-the-pack defense at worst in the NFL.

" 'How can we exploit their weaknesses, and how can we use our strengths?' " Zimmer said. Any parent out there has to understand full well what she was going through.

Vikings Running back Latavius Murry in action. We need to stay in phase. "That's been a proven winning formula for a long time, so I think this week is a good test of that". Minnesota ranked first in the National Football League this season in third-down defense, allowing just a 25-percent conversion rate.

They have talent at all levels.

"You know what? Right now myself, our staff, are interested in one thing only,"Reich said at Tuesday's news conference".

Vaitai is an excellent run blocker, but his pass protection leaves some to be desired.

The Vikings won't face a quarterback of Brees' caliber on Sunday, Jan. 21; Eagles backup Nick Foles has stepped in for injured MVP candidate Carson Wentz. Atlanta's offense has been lackluster this season while the Vikings offense has been explosive. In the secondary, cornerback Xavier Rhodes and safety Harrison Smith were both named first-team all-pros.

"That's the challenge against going up against one of the better defenses in the league", Reich said. "Wentz scrambled around a lot more, probably, but as far as the scheme and things like that, it really hasn't changed that much". They were built similarly: Defensive front first.

He reminded media that he and Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman have shared a philosophy of building through the draft and then adding through free agency. "I think everyone pretty much assumed the last 30 seconds or so that we would be playing the Saints".

Zimmer mentioned "smart", "tough" and "disciplined" as qualities that they look for when scouting players. "Do we have more ahead of us to focus on?" "Good for all you guys who predicted that". The Eagles were one of two teams to reach the playoffs with a kickoff return average under 20 yards per return (19.7 ypr; Pittsburgh averaged 19.1 ypr). Through four weeks, Cook was having an extremely productive year, rushing for 354 yards at 4.8 yards per carry and two touchdowns.
