Keenum took over as Vikings quarterback in the second week of the campaign after starter Sam Bradford suffered a knee injury and guided Minnesota to a division crown while Foles has been the Eagles signal caller for barely a month since Carson Wentz suffered a season-ending knee injury.

On Wednesday, Jan. 17, Morstead tweeted that he'd fly up to Minneapolis the week of the Super Bowl for a check presentation with Children's Minnesota if donations reached $100,000. "Are we proud of what we accomplished?"

"Even though we do the free food at halftime, most of our customers will order food during the first and second quarter anyway", he said.

"I'm not really in mourning anymore", one friend said. As the Eagles take the field against Minnesota this weekend for the last stop before the Super Bowl, Dallas sports bars will be packed with a wave of Vikings fans. Minnesota is known for having the NFL's No.1 ranked defense, but Philadelphia has one of the league's top units as well. With a win on Sunday, the Vikings would actually head home for the Super Bowl, as it will be played inside their home stadium, U.S. Bank Stadium.

Nick Foles went searching for clarity, for guidance and for direction, but in time, he found the answer resided within him all along. Louis Rams in 2015.

With no timeouts and seemingly no hope, Vikings quarterback Case Keenum connected with wide receiver Stefon Diggs with 10 seconds remaining on a 61-yard touchdown on the right sideline as Saints rookie safety Marcus Wiliams egregiously whiffed on a tackle.

"It's pretty wild", Foles said. Playing football, playing together, hitting a rhythm. "It's sort of friendly hectoring kind of thing is probably the most you're going to get".

Is that a matter of Keenum, Foles and Goff developing? Including the playoffs, Keenum, Foles and Jared Goff combined to go 25-8 this season. You're playing a defense. "I see what those kids have, and it's not a whole lot". But the Vikings' defense is better than the Atlanta Falcons unit that Philadelphia beat in the divisional round, and the Eagles scored just 15 points last week. So, in a way, maybe Cowboys fans should show a little appreciation for those Eagles fans who so kindly pointed out the Pokes' shortcomings. They like to switch it up. Zimmer had rewatched it countless times, too, but made it a point to watch that play with his defense, picking apart what went wrong for the Saints so it doesn't happen to them.

"I don't care how much experience they have, I don't care how much they have done in the past", Colvin added. Jeffery confirmed after Philadelphia Eagles practice Thursday that the Vikings were one of the teams in the running for his services this past offseason, and he didn't deny that they offered him a multiyear deal in free agency.

He briefly thought about retiring before signing with Kansas City to be Alex Smith's backup under former Eagles coach Andy Reid.
