vikings vs. eagles matchup to watch: smith must lead schemes to slow foles


the eagles offense has leaned on the increasingly popular “run-pass option” plays, which is a college staple making its way into nfl circles. eagles quarterback nick foles was “really successful” with those plays against the falcons in philly’s nfc divisional win, linebacker anthony barr said, and the eagles likely will continue to try them against the vikings. they’re often successful because the quarterback has the option to hand off or throw, depending on how a designated defender reacts to the initial handoff move. defenses can gain an edge by disguising coverages and assignments before the snap. that’s where all-pro safety harrison smith comes in as one of the league’s best at not showing his hand. if smith, and other vikings defenders, can fool foles, then his split-second decision w






vikings vs eagles: five key nfc championship matchups to watch


the two-seed vikings (14-3) will travel to philadelphia for sunday’s nfc championship game against the top-seed eagles (14-3) after an incredible and historic 29-24 comeback against the saints at u.s. bank stadium. with one more win, the vikings will be back here for super bowl lii.below are five key matchup points for minnesota’s bid to a home super bowl.foles’ fall against mike zimmereagles qb nick foles is 0-2 against mike zimmer-coached defenses in his career. foles, who won his first playoff game in philadelphia’s 15-10 win against the falcons on saturday, lost to the bengals in 2012 and to the vikings in 2015 (as the rams quarterback). foles was ineffective with both the eagles and rams offenses in those games: completing 51.5 percent of his passes for 348 yards, a touchdown and an i






mailbag: how will the vikings pressure eagles quarterback foles?


send any vikings-related questions to @andrew_krammer and we’ll answer a few here every friday.will zimmer dial up a lot of blitzes or can the front four get pressure against the eagles’ good offensive line? — @mlloweryak: mike zimmer turned up the heat against a solid saints offensive line in the 29-24 nfc divisional win. extra rushers produced in key moments. safety harrison smith’s sack on third down just before halftime pushed the saints back 10 yards, forcing a 58-yard field goal attempt that missed. it’s not farfetched to think zimmer will deploy a similar tactic, perhaps even more so against eagles quarterback nick foles. foles has the league’s second-worst passer rating while under pressure (23.8), according to pro football focus, inviting the thought of extra rushers against a str






vikings vs. eagles matchup to watch: cb xavier rhodes takes on wr alshon jeffery


the vikings allowed only one 100-yard receiver during the regular season due, in large part, to the play of all-pro cornerback xavier rhodes who shadowed opponents’ top receivers for much of the season. between the vikings and a trip to the super bowl is a familiar foe in eagles receiver alshon jeffery.the former bears target has caught seven touchdown passes in nine career games against the vikings, his most vs. any nfl team. but no longer is jay cutler lobbing deep touchdown tosses to jeffery. eagles quarterback nick foles has completed only half of his 22 throws to jeffery since taking over for the injured carson wentz, netting 137 yards and a touchdown in the past 4 ½ games. jeffery did lead the eagles with 61 receiving yards, all on two scoring drives, in the nfc divisional victory ag






nick foles is returning to eagles as backup quarterback


nick foles is returning to the city where he had his most success.the philadelphia eagles agreed to terms on a two-year contract with foles on monday, bringing him back to serve as the backup quarterback for carson wentz two years after former coach chip kelly traded him to st. louis.the 28-year-old foles was drafted in the third round in 2012 by philadelphia under andy reid. he thrived under kelly a year later, going to the pro bowl after having one of the best statistical seasons in nfl history. foles threw 27 touchdown passes and only two interceptions in 10 starts while leading the eagles to an nfc east title that season.the eagles released chase daniel, who signed a $21 million, three-year contract last year.foles was 14-4 as a starter for the eagles in 2013-14. he was 4-7 in 11 start






nick foles and case keenum have strong career connections


philadelphia (ap) — nick foles contemplated retirement after a miserable season with the rams in which he ended up losing his starting job to case keenum.that’s just one spin of a unique quarterback carousel that’ll be on display when foles and the philadelphia eagles (14-3) host keenum and the minnesota vikings (14-3) in the nfc championship game sunday.“it pretty wild,” foles said. “case’s success and the way he plays doesn’t surprise me because him and i were together and we prepared together. we were around each other every day. but i think the big message there is no matter what happens, you’ve just got to keep believing in yourself, keep working hard and just never give up.”the cycle began when former eagles coach chip kelly traded foles to the st. louis rams for sam bradford in marc

it's too soon to book airline tickets. that has to wait another day. but minnesota vikings fans know where they're headed if the vikings beat the new orleans saints on sunday at u.s. bank stadium in the nfc divisional round. top-seeded philadelphia eagles maintained homefield advantage with a nail-biting 15-10 win over the no. 6-seed atlanta falcons at lincoln financial field. but first things first: the vikings have to handle business against the saints, whom they beat in week 1.that was long before the saints' offense caught fire with rookie running back alvin kamara, and before the defense filled with new starters became comfortable.nfc divisional round:who: no. 4 new orleans (12-5) at no. 2 vikings (13-3) at u.s. bank stadiumwhen: sundaytime/tv: 3:40 p.m. on foxthis isn't to make assum

vikings vs. eagles matchup to watch: joe berger will have his hands full vs. fle


eagles defensive tackle fletcher cox has been one of the most disruptive interior pass rushers in the nfl this season. standing in his way for much of the game should be right guard joe berger, who at age 35 has put together another strong season while leading all vikings in playing 99.8 percent of snaps. cox, 6-4 and 310 pounds, causes havoc up the middle for offenses, particularly quarterbacks. since cox entered the league in 2012, only eight defensive tackles have more than his 34 sacks. the eagles can create pressure from all angles, often moving cox and defensive end brandon graham, the eagles’ sacks leader, around the line. so the vikings’ interior line, led by berger and center pat elflein, will be critical in keeping the heat out of quarterback case keenum’s face. berger ranked 24t






nick foles returns to the eagles. what does it mean for chase daniel?


nick foles is returning to the nfl team where it all started for him.after two seasons playing for two different teams, foles is back with the philadelphia eagles after signing a two-year deal monday morning to back up starting quarterback carson wentz.foles was a third-round draft pick for the eagles in 2012 and went 15-9 as starting quarterback in three seasons with the team. he was traded to the rams, then in st. louis, in 2015 but eventually lost the starting job to case keenum and was released during the following off-season.in 2016, foles served as backup to alex smith in kansas city. the chiefs declined their option on him last week.foles’ return to philadelphia would appear to signal the end chase daniel’s time as a member of the eagles. daniel signed a three-year, $21-million deal

are philadelphia eagles weakened enough to prefer playing them on road?


sports illustrated's peter king pretty much nailed it tuesday morning when writing about how bad the eagles looked monday, even in defeating the raiders 19-10. the score was tied 10-10 late, and the raiders had plenty of chances to go ahead.philly's defense — which is formidable, to say the least — bailed the team out. the offense, though, looks like a mess after nick foles took over at qb for the injured carson wentz. king wrote:"philadelphia clinched home-field advantage in the nfc last night with some sort of christmas miracle, the 19-10 high-wire win over oakland. but it's hard to think of a win that felt more like a loss for philadelphia than this game."foles now has a five-point win over the moribund giants and an all-time lucky win over the disorganized [that's putting it nicely] ra

hartman: want to compare sunday's qbs? ask shurmur


there has been a lot of talk around the nfl about how unique it is to have two quarterbacks who started the year as backups — the eagles’ nick foles and the vikings’ case keenum — facing each other for a chance to go to the super bowl.if there is one person in the league who can talk about the success of each player, it is vikings offensive coordinator pat shurmur.shurmur, of course, has helped guide keenum to his best season as a pro with his great offensive system and play-calling this season.but shurmur also was offensive coordinator in philadelphia in 2013 when foles put together one of the best quarterbacking seasons in league history. foles’ 119.2 passer rating remains the third-highest single-season mark in league history behind aaron rodgers in 2011 and peyton manning in 2004.shurm






falcons vs. eagles: how the two teams match up in the nfc divisional round


can the philadelphia eagles keep rolling without the face of their franchise?with quarterback carson wentz recovering from a season-ending knee injury, nick foles will do his best to pick up the slack for the no. 1 seed eagles. the early results haven’t been especially encouraging.foles completed 47 of 87 passes for 439 yards (with five touchdowns and two interceptions) in his three games, barely playing in the third.there was a significant drop-off from wentz, particularly when it came to scrambling and making plays outside the pocket.atlanta players aren’t breathing easy, though.“i think when you’ve played for a while and it’s been done at a high level, which he has, that lends to that kind of respect,” falcons coach dan quinn said of foles.“he’s done it at a high level, and he takes car

philadelphia eagles have to rely on inconsistent quarterback nick foles


the weight of a pessimistic city and its once-promising nfl playoff aspirations now rest on the shoulders of the philadelphia eagles' unexpected leader. nick foles wasn't supposed to be in this position, not when the season had reached such a critical juncture. he was supposed to be waiting in the wings in case he was ever needed. but in truth, no one — certainly not the eagles — thought he'd be a factor.and now, philadelphia's status as a surefire super bowl contender is at the mercy of an unreliable quarterback who has started only three games this season. and the coaching staff that deemed foles nothing more than a serviceable backup to its rising star, carson wentz, now wants its fans and its players to believe foles is more than capable of seeing this process through."my message to ni
