Philadelphia Eagles' Doug Pederson: 'We're going to the stinkin' Super Bowl'

Elliott didn't miss a kick en route to scoring eight points and helping the Philadelphia Eagles top the Minnesota Vikings 38-7 on Sunday night at home in the NFC championship game.

VIKINGS SCORE FIRST: Minnesota struck first blood with a 25-yard touchdown pass to perennial red zone threat Kyle Rudolph on the Vikings first drive, though after that it was all Eagles. Odd to say, considering it'll be a quarterback matchup of Case Keenum vs. Nick Foles, but this will easily be the most entertaining game of Championship Weekend.

The Vikings proved that the game isn't over until the final second.

As the midday host of "The Q" on Fox 29 and the new "Quincy Harris Morning Show" on WRNB 100.3 FM Philly, the Temple graduate exudes optimism, even though the Eagles will be without Wentz, who was arguably the best quarterback in the National Football League this season until a torn ACL last month sidelined him until next season. When playing the Atlanta Falcons, the Eagles were given that status since many though Philly wouldn't have a chance of winning since star quarterback Wentz tore his ACL in Week 14.

The Minnesota Vikings are looking to make NFL History. It peaked when quarterback Case Keenum led it after Stefon Diggs' "Minneapolis Miracle" touchdown in the divisional round.


It was all Eagles - and a whole lot of Nick Foles - after that.

What is the Vikings biggest edge in this game? "You feed off last week, obviously".

- So close, yet so far-though it's certainly not a new feeling for Vikings fans. The group has rented a home to stay in together and will be in attendance at Sunday's game in Philadelphia. Philadelphia recovered and turned the takeaway into seven more points in what amounted to a 14-point swing as the Eagles took a commanding 21-7 lead that increased to 24-7 thanks to a field goal as time expired in the first half. "They really don't listen to that stuff", Eagles coach Doug Pederson said, via ESPN.com.

The Vikings haven't played in a Super Bowl since January 1977.

"The guys we have in the locker room, it was an incredible ride with them".


The Minnesota Vikings' win over the New Orleans Saints last weekend could soon turn into a money making venture for the team.

"That's why we play the game, to ultimately win a championship, to get to the Super Bowl", Foles said. "It would probably be the cheapest option of going to a Super Bowl".

"When we win, I want the people who hopped off the bandwagon to know that we are taking their driver's licenses", Williams said.

"I didn't play well enough", Thielen said. The Eagles face the same level of skepticism Sunday, as most experts believe the Vikings are destined to return to the Super Bowl for the first time in 41 years.
