All is set for Sunday Game between the No.1 seed in the NFC The Philadelphia Eagles and the No.2 Seed the Vikings from Minnesota. Both teams were lucky to be here. Otherwise this would be a NFC south conference matchup (Saints vs Falcons). But they did what they need to do in the divisional round and advance to this stage. Who will go to the Superbowl?
Well, the weakest team here is the Eagles, besides they handle well in the Divisional round game. They are not convincing. It seems that the reason why the Eagles advance was because of the mistakes of the Falcons. And not because they showed a great offensive game. The defense could stopped Matt Ryan and Freeman. But they won the game only scoring 15 points.
There is no doubt that this will be the game where the Eagles will face a top defense. The best defense in 3rd down, and the #1 ranked in the nation. So, it will be a difficult game for the Eagles.

In the other hand, the Vikings are in the NFC Championship game, they want to return in 15 days to their home in the Superbowl and be the first team to do it, in the history of super bowls. But, it won’t be easy. First of all, the vikings are there in that game because of a miracle, a terrible mistake by CB Marucus Williams from the Saints, who missed a tackle on Diggs and let the Vikings win the game with no more time to come back.
They showed confidence in the first half, but after Keenum interception they begin to decay until the point that the Saints overcome de 17-0 deficit and were winning the game. So, the confidence they show till be an important issue in the game.
In my opinion the Vikings will advance to the superbowl and will make history.. But they will loose to any of the AFC opponents.
