Overview:

On Sunday, January 21st, the Jacksonville Jaguars will be on the road to take on the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game.

The Crowd:

“The Crowd” is projecting a final score of Vikings 22.7 – Eagles 22.3 with an over/under of 45.0.

2017-18 Statistics (32 total teams):

Yards per game: Eagles 365.8 (7th) > Vikings 356.9 (11th)

Points per game: Eagles 28.6 (3rd) > Vikings 23.9 (10th)

Turnover margin: Eagles +11 > Vikings +5

Fewest yards allowed per game: Vikings 275.9 (1st) > Eagles 306.5 (4th)

Fewest Points allowed per game:  Vikings 15.8 (1st) > Eagles 18.4 (4th)

Summary:

The Vikings defeated the Saints 29-24 at home to advance to the NFC Championship Game.  Trailing by two with 25 seconds remaining, Case Keenum delivered a 61-yard touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs to win the game.  The Vikings outgained the Saints 403-358 in total yardage.  Keenum finished 25-40 for 318 yards with a touchdown and an interception.  Minnesota rushed for 95 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries (3.3 average).  Stefon Diggs had 6 catches for 137 yards and the game winning touchdown.  Minnesota’s stout defense held the Saints to 80 yards rushing and intercepted Drew Brees twice.  Minnesota (+130) ranks 5th in the NFL in point differential.

The Eagles grinded out a tough 15-10 home victory over the Atlanta Falcons.  The Eagles outgained the Falcons 334-281 in total yardage.  Philadelphia also won the possession battle despite turning the ball over twice.  Nick Foles filled in for the injured Carson Wentz and was 23-30 for 230 yards.  The Eagles ground game totaled 96 yards and a touchdown on 32 carries (3.0 average).  Philadelphia’s defense played tremendous holding an explosive Falcons offense to 10 points and under 300 yards of total offense.  The Eagles (+162) led the NFL in point differential.

Bottom Line:

Philadelphia has been carried by their defense since Carson Wentz sustained his season ending ACL injury.  Nick Foles has guided the team to a (3-1) record in his starts but the team is only averaging 17.0 points per game in those contests.  The Vikings, fresh off their miracle finish, have now won 12 of their last 13 games.  Minnesota has the league’s number one defense which has only allowed the opposition to exceed 20 points in 5 of their 17 games.  This should be a tight defensive minded battle which the Vikings are better equipped to win.  I’ll take the Vikings 20-13 on the road.
