Vikings WR Adam Thielen questionable versus Philadelphia Eagles

While Minnesota ranked No. 1 in total defense, the Vikings did not force many turnovers - ranking 23rd with 19 takeaways.

With the exception of the Super Bowl, NFL prop bets typically aren't posted until the day of the games. You got here and are one game away from being the first National Football League team in history to play the Super Bowl on its home turf.

LeGarrette Blount, who recorded 766 yards rushing on 173 carries for Philadelphia this season, spoke from the other side of the ball on the challenge that Minnesota's defense poses. The eight-year pro is an absolute nightmare for opposing offences and has a chance to exploit the Eagles' weakest link in the offensive line: backup left tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai. The major difference is Minnesota enters the NFC title game with its identity intact - Case Keenum first stepped in as its starter in Week 2 - while the Eagles continue to adjust to life without budding star and MVP candidate Carson Wentz. "We expect more this year", said Deputy Chief Dennis Wison.

Corner Jalen Mills noted that "you see 'em consistently getting open". One reason is because they've blossomed into reliable and fearsome weapons.

"In truth, the fans were booing Deion Sanders, but the fact that they cheered as Irvin lay on the field motionless tells you all you need to know", according to the 2015 poll. I thought Doug [Pederson] a really good job. He had laid motionless on the field for a few moments and was able to be helped off by the team medical staff. Against the Falcons, the Eagles only average three yards a rush, but running the ball 32 times kept the Falcons offense off the field and allowed the Eagles to control the clock. They're not thinking; they're reacting.


"Pat, he's a tremendous coach". There may be a tad more caution in play here with the medical staff and coaches because of the importance of having players in the best health possible this weekend. I think that's been the key for both defenses, putting pressure on the quarterback or making him drop his eyes or move in the pocket and throw off-balance. But with the lead and the closing minutes winding down, the Eagles made a decision to tweak their defense and give Jones cushion to catch the ball, just not beat them deep. "All of the things you talk about all year long, really". "Our guys have their work cut out for them Sunday".

"I'm just thankful", said Diggs, now in his third season, from the University of Maryland. Maybe a little. I think Alshon's a better player.

"We talk about it all the time with our guys". After that, he played his college football for University of MI. And that play you're referring to there in the fourth quarter was huge.

We'll be keeping a close eye on how the Jaguars defend Rob Gronkowski. If he did it, I hope they throw the book at him. #27 [Malcolm Jenkins], the safety, he's a very good player. The victor of the pool gets to assign me to write about whatever they would like for my weekly newsletter. "He's kind of crafty also, but he's pretty quick and explosive". Hunter, he's up there with Everson [Griffen] probably, twitchy-wise.

"I had a lot of support along the way. But they're talented. They're good at setting the edge, good at rushing wide, so they're good all way the way across the board - Joseph in the middle - I mean, they're stacked".
