    My Broncos aren't in the playoffs, but I'm rooting for the Jaguars to beat the Patriots, and either the Vikings or Saints to take the NFC. The Patriots unfortunately are looking pretty unstoppable.

    Wow! What a game. After the Saints kicked the FG to go ahead with less than a minute on the clock, I had that "here we go again" moment that is all too familiar for Vikings fans. I had to change the channel to avoid watching another disappointing loss. Then I turned back and watched Diggs make the game winning TD. Unbelievable.

    The Vikings and Saints game is the craziest playoff game I can remember since Tim Tebow took out the Steelers in 2012!

    Marcus Williams either pulled off the play on purpose? Why? Or he just plain missed what looked like an easy tackle that would have ended the game, giving the win to the Saints. Congrats to the Vikings and their fans. A lot of good games this weekend. Hope the Vikes and the Eagles is a good one! 6:40 eastern time, Sunday, on Fox.

    If the Eagles had Wentz, I'd be okay with either team winning, but without Wentz, I want the Vikings to finally get their Superbowl!

    I initially thought he just missed the tackle. Jimmy Johnson said he might have been trying to avoid getting flagged. I think JJ was just trying to explain it in the best light.

    Eagles are underdogs again, as expected, Vikings are 3.5 favorites.

    I was honestly surprised the Falcons beat the Rams, and I had a feeling there was going to be an upset, the Falcons are more on the Eagles level, I think Minnesota would be very hard to beat if Keenum doesn't turn the ball over, and the D is as effective today against the power house Saints.

    Maybe your right, just hope and pray Keenum has an off day, while Nick Foles, goes off!

    Patriots fans are annoying not because of their teams constant success, but they were not the most loyal of fan bases before 2000. The Patriots before Brady and Belichick were awful (Minus the 78, 83, and 85 teams) after their first superbowl in 85' the Patriots were a laughingstock of a team, and they had a hard time getting fans to come out for decades. As soon as the patriots lose their winning ways, the fan base will shrink again.

    I suppose it’s underdogs again, but if the defense and Foles plays like they did today, we can give them a good fight. We shall see.Heck, at least we got to the Super Bowl, something not too many said we could do without Wentz.

    It's hard to say, everything would have to go right for the Eagles, and everything would have to go wrong for the Patriots. The Patriots offense is 2 dimensional, and in some ways is really 3 dimensional. With Dion Lewis, Rex Burkhead, and James White, the Patriots have a solid running back (lewis) a solid pass catching back (Burkhead) and a great screen pass back (White), those three in their own right can screw just about any defense over. Then there is Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett who act as great blockers, and mid field pass catchers that rips secondaries apart if they don't adapt. Then there is the WR corps that can go deep, slant, and screen pass their way to touchdowns all F$%@*(! day. Then of course there is Brady, who unless you put pressure on him, is basically unstoppable. The Patriots defense is equally as challenging (Even from what analysts have said negatively about them), Matt Patricia can essentially adapt his team every week to fit the opposing teams offense, we saw the ultimate dismantling of the Titans "power" running game, and Marcus Mariota have a nervous breakdown against a supposedly "lackluster" secondary. James Harrison has suddenly revived the Patriots pass rush, which for a QB like Foles is no bueno. The Eagles will have to rely on Blount and Ajayi to take the load off Foles, who last time I checked, isn't great at carrying teams. The Eagles have a chance, but a very, very, very, small chance.

    Definitely, this was how I felt when the Broncos went up against the Panthers. The Panthers had a dangerous offense and defense, while we only had a great defense and a average offense with an ailing Peyton Manning. I would be much more enthusiastic and excited about this if Carson was healthy, because then you would't have to guess if he'd play well.

    Well here is my take. The Eagles will not go into 4 minute offense and sit on a 10 point lead with 8:00 to go in the 4th as the Jaguars did. If Doug Pederson has shown all year, he plays to win and will keep the pedal down. I believe it will be a fight.
