The Philadelphia Eagles will host the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
The Eagles defeated the Atlanta Falcons 15-10 in an NFC divisional-round playoff game Saturday. The Eagles were the first No. 1 seed to be underdogs in a home playoff game since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970.
Opening kickoff is scheduled for 6:40 p.m. Sunday, and The Press will provide weeklong Eagles coverage.
Here is what you can expect this week. We will post a series of Eagles-related photo galleries, including the team’s 10 best playoff moments, its 10 worst playoff moments and reader submitted photos. Are you going all out for the game Sunday? Do you have any pre-game rituals? Do your kids or pets dress up? Send us photos and videos to Newstips@pressofac.com to be featured.
Wednesday: The Press’ Eagles beat writer David Weinberg will do a preview video, explaining everything you need to know about the upcoming game.
Friday: Dave Weinberg will write a story comparing Eagles’ quarterback Nick Foles and Vikings’ quarterback Case Keenum. Foles started for the Eagles this season mid-December after starting quarterback Carson Wentz tore his ACL.
