The New England Patriots are only one win away in the seventh consecutive AFC Championship game from playing in Super Bowl 52 at U.S. Bank Stadium, Minnesota.
The Philadelphia Eagles are in the NFC Conference Championship game for the first time since the 2008 season where they will most likely be underdogs again. The Philadelphia will be playing in the 2018 NFC Championship game between the winner of today’s Vikings vs Saints matchup.
In the AFC, the Jacksonville Jaguars are eliminating the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night by 45-42 and will be playing in their AFC Championship game next Sunday at Gillette Stadium.
The long-suffering Minnesota will take advantage of their home field and defeated the Saints by Vikings 29, Saints 24 in the divisional playoff round and will beat the Eagles in the NFC Championship Game at Lincoln Financial Field next Sunday, January 21, to earn their chance to play the Super Bowl on their home field.
This time, it’s the Minnesota Vikings with the better defense, and that unit coupled with the Minnesota’s home-field advantage, will lead the way to the franchise’s first Super Bowl victory.
