Expect best defense to win NFC championship

Vikings Seek NFC Title

NFL Conference Championship Previews: Jaguars v Patriots, Vikings v Eagles

Nevertheless, Ticket King has sold "hundreds" of tickets, most of which came from corporate sponsors from other National Football League teams, he said.

Defense should win at least the NFC championship.

In the AFC title game Sunday, the small-market Jacksonville Jaguars will be vying for their first Super Bowl appearance against the New England Patriots - a team that plays in a huge market and has a large national following along with five Super Bowl titles, including a comeback win over the Atlanta Falcons past year.

While prices would go up for a Vikings appearance, Nowakowski said, "If for some reason the Jaguars and Eagles make it, my gut tells me the prices will drop". Until that day comes, we will revel in the wins and hope for more, and lament the defeats.

The Vikings allowed the fewest yards (275.9) and fewest points (15.8) per game. After all, this is the NFL's fourth-ranked defense (in both points and yards) going up against the top-ranked defense. The only true celebration will come when the Eagles win the Super Bowl. While it's complete nonsense to say that the league is rigged (The NFL is t organized to pull that off and keep it quiet), you'll hear from some people that are dead serious that they now have the smoking gun that the league is rigged should the Vikings and Patriots end up as the Super Bowl matchup in Minneapolis this year. Safety Harrison Smith and Rhodes are All-Pros. Brady has faced top-two scoring defense in playoffs three times (2014 Seahawks, 2004 Eagles, 2004 Steelers).

Defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and safety Malcolm Jenkins are Philadelphia's Pro Bowl picks. If anything their defensive back seven is better than those Giants teams, and Tom Brady will have his work cut out. Just six of his 30 attempts went 10 yards beyond the line of scrimmage, with a bulk of the damage in the passing game coming from yards after catch on quick hits. "There is a survival reason that we do that, but basically (today), it's one way that humans prepare themselves for inevitable disappointment, thinking that it won't be as bad if they're prepared".

Microsoft (MSFT) Rating Increased to Buy at Zacks Investment Research
It turned negative, as 11 investors sold AGII shares while 55 reduced holdings. 28 funds opened positions while 52 raised stakes. Finally, Zacks Investment Research cut shares of Microsoft from a "buy" rating to a "hold" rating in a research note on Tuesday.

But yet here we are; somehow we've found ourselves in this weird post-Jeff Fisher reality.

Who knew the 2015 St. Louis Rams had a Super Bowl quarterback in their midst? Blake Bortles against Case Keenum or Nick Foles.

And then, just when it seemed the Eagles were going to crush it down the stretch, Wentz torn the ACL in his left knee during the December 10 victory at the Los Angeles Rams. Coach Bill Belichick is 7-2 all-time vs. Jaguars. But Jeffery, who spent his first five seasons with the Bears, did most of his damage against other cornerbacks while also being the featured guy in Chicago's offense.

Eagles 26, Vikings 14 (wild card): The Eagles spoiled the Vikings' first home playoff game in eight years, and Andy Reid beat Childress, his former offensive coordinator and good friend. Philadelphia gave him a four-year, $52 million extension during the season.

"He explained that the Super Bowl was already on his bucket list", Nowakowski said. Eric Kendricks is in his third season with the Vikings, and Mychal is in his sixth year with the Eagles.

In Keenum's 12 regular season wins (one of which he didn't start but still attempted 21 passes), he was sacked just 12 times total.
