The Eagles are headed to the Superbowl thanks to QB Nick Foles.
The Eagles demolished the Vikings 38-7 and booked their third trip to the Super Bowl in franchise history, and first since the 2004 season. In Minneapolis on Feb. 4, they will meet the Patriots, who earlier on Sunday beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-20 in the AFC Championship Game.
Philadelphia has taken great pride in being underdogs in both of their playoff games despite being the top-seeded team in the N.F.C., and they are sure to continue that trend when facing Brady and the Patriots.
The Eagles dominated the Vikings on both sides of the ball. And while many expected the defense to do its job – it more than did that on Sunday with three timely turnovers, including a pick-six by Patrick Robinson that turned the tide – but the real story was the play of quarterback Nick Foles.
Nick Foles was 26 for 33 passing for 352 yards, tossing 3 touchdowns and 0 interceptions.
