Fans stock up on Eagles NFC Championship gear

The offense was not good, but the surprise in this game was how bad Minnesota's defense played. They got what they expected, but not in the order they expected. He will be the lone former Vol to play in this year's Super Bowl when the Eagles take on the New England Patriots. The Patriots overcame a double-digit deficit to win, 20-17. That drive resulted in a touchdown to Amendola, and another touchdown throw from Brady to Amendola gave the Patriots their margin of victory. But he's proved himself by now with his eighth Super Bowl appearance.

Don't worry, Case. Vikings fans, both young and old, are used to the sting of the postseason bite. Per Football Outsiders' Aaron Schatz, the Eagles' dominance resulted in the best single-game DVOA rating (130.3 percent) since the 2015 season's NFC title game.

The Eagles scored more points in the first half than the Vikings had given up in the first half all season, and the Birds went on to stack 38 points on the NFL's best defense coming in.

Inspired, Philly's D forced a three-and-out, the Foles led the Eagles on a 12-play, 75-yard masterpiece of a drive.

William Hill's Nevada book went a touch lower, with New England opening as a 5-point favorite. His pass was short, intercepted by Patrick Robinson and return 50 yards for a momentum-turning touchdown that tied the game in the first quarter. But the City of Philadelphia might want to keep any and all Super Bowl parade planning under wraps until the Eagles, you know, win.

After Foles torched the Vikings for 352 yards and three touchdowns on Sunday, bettors seem a little too convinced he's set up for the same type of performance against the Patriots on February 4 in Minneapolis. The Eagles finished 10-for-14 on third downs against a defense that ranked No. 1 in the National Football League in third down efficiency.

It's the classic story of the wily veteran looking for yet another record to break going against the fresh-faced underdogs. If Patricia and Josh McDaniels both leave, the Patriots will be hard up to find someone to replace what they do.

And watching their team play in the City of Brotherly Love boosted up their confidence even more that the birds were going to play in the Super Bowl. Hall of Fame quarterbacks have won 27 of the 51 Super Bowls.

From a value standpoint, it's hard to not lean towards the Patriots minus-5 and under 49 points in the Super Bowl on first reaction.

Needless to say, things have not changed now that they have earned a trip to Super Bowl LII.

The Eagles continue to be fueled by this idea they're underdogs or underappreciated, riding the rallying cry all the way to the big game. Mark J. Rebilas, USA TODAY Sports Tom Brady celebrates after a first down by running back Dion Lewis in the fourth quarter in the AFC Championship Game.

While the offense was clicking like it early had all season, the defense was clamping down for a second straight week.
