Sports Notebook: Can 'miracle' propel Vikings to Super Bowl?

SEPTA offers discounted round-trip pass for Sunday's Eagles game

SEPTA offers discounted round-trip pass for Sunday's Eagles game

"This year has been great because they're winning so people are coming out", Kari said.

One certified Super Bowl 51 player ring has been sold privately for $75,000, SCP Auctions founder David Kohler told ESPN, though he didn't disclose the player's identity.

Minnesota and Philadelphia are among the nine who have gotten there but never won. The Vikings, who finished the regular season with the NFL's No. 1 defense, understand the difference it can make in the game if they find a way to affect Foles. With the other three teams and their fans, the hunger pangs are constant - as is that gnawing belief that something has to go wrong between now and the hoisting of the Lombardi Trophy. He appeared in 15 games this season, starting one, and registered 19 tackles and a sack. If when the Vikings beat the Eagles, Gov. Dayton will send a five-pound version of the Minnesota favorite Pearson's Salted Nut Roll to Gov. Wolf. But.that's not all! You could also WIN pre-game sideline access + other cool perks!

A team doesn't need an outstanding quarterback to win a Super Bowl.

Standing in the Vikings' path to the Super Bowl is a Philadelphia Eagles team that tied for second in the league in OSRS behind the Los Angeles Rams.

Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen are an explosive pair of receivers capable of making tough catches and big plays - as the New Orleans Saints found out in the dying seconds last week.

But while the Eagles secondary is an underrated group - holding Matt Ryan to just 210 yards on 61 per cent - the Vikings receiving corps is a clear upgrade over Philadelphia. "This city has been so deprived for so long".

The Eagles went 7-1 at home during the regular season, while the Vikings were 6-2 in road games.

"It's the NFC Championship game".

Philadelphia's offense put up better numbers. In each of the past six years, they have had a top-five draft pick. The Jags edged Buffalo, in the Wild Card Round two weeks ago and a 45-42 decision over Pittsburgh in last weekend's Divisional Round.

Nevertheless, Ticket King has sold "hundreds" of tickets, most of which came from corporate sponsors from other National Football League teams, he said. Those two should be good to go on Sunday along with Alexander.

History is not on Jacksonville's side. As Sunday reminded us, anything can happen.

Apparently, that routine includes practicing in the Eagles' home stadium.

"A couple of younger guys came up and they were in their gear and I said it's only a game and he said I know and we just fist bumped it's all good", said Barnes.

"It feels like a setup, like a really cruel joke".

On how he remained motivated after becoming a backup: "I think the big thing is you gotta know where your heart is". "I'm all in. I don't care". But who cares, man. He is going to have to throw the ball to win; it is just a matter of how successful he is doing it. "If I get bucked off, I get bucked off".
