Super Bowl ticket prices are plummeting since Vikings loss

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 11:29:30 GMT

When the Minnesota Vikings scored the first touchdown in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday to go up 7-0 over the Philadelphia Eagles, Super Bowl ticket prices on secondary-market site Tickpick shot up to $5,700. The problem: Minnesota fans had been driving the market ever since the Vikings won their divisional game on Jan. 14. The Vikings looked likely to be the first team ever to play in the Super Bowl in their own home stadium, and attendance at a home Super Bowl would naturally be dominated by fans of the home team.



Giants announce Pat Shurmur as head coach, and he seems like a good fit

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 23:05:53 GMT

Sometimes the head coach is so busy with everything else he has give up play-calling, which is how he got the job in the first place. Calling the offense and running a team seemed to become too much for him, and he did neither well by the end of his short tenure with the New York Giants. As was reported before the Minnesota Vikings were eliminated from the playoffs, Shurmur is the Giants’ next head coach.

The Philadelphia Eagles have completely embraced their underdog status this postseason – right down to the creepy dog masks – and they’re not letting the fact that they’re facing the GOAT in Super Bowl LII change that. After their surprising takedown of the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night, setting up a rematch of Super Bowl XXXIX, Eagles players declared themselves ready to face five-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. Told that Las Vegas had once again installed Philadelphia as the underdogs, right tackle Lane Johnson said, “I know.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur has been hired as the New York Giants head coach.

Nick Foles vs. Tom Brady is Super Bowl battle of ghost vs. GOAT

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 06:27:41 GMT

As the NFL season whittled down to one last game, the league’s playoff attrition left us with the guy we all saw coming versus the guy whose career we all left for dead. In a game long defined (and longer remembered) by marquee quarterback matchups, the Philadelphia Eagles crushed the Minnesota Vikings 38-7 on Sunday night and delivered the quintessential mismatch. On one side, the New England Patriots’ Brady, whose career has been defined by Super Bowl hardware.

How The Eagles Embarrassed The Vikings

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 14:59:13 GMT

While the rowdy Lincoln Financial Field fans embraced the Philadelphia Eagles’ underdog status Sunday night, the Eagles played like they always believed they were the better team. Over the course of their 38-7 NFC Championship Game win over the Minnesota Vikings, the Eagles did everything they weren’t supposed to be able to do without injured starting quarterback Carson Wentz — and they forced the Vikings to do almost everything badly. Offensively, the Eagles were better running the ball, far more effective passing downfield and devastating on third down. Their defense upstaged the Vikings’ vaunted unit and made quarterback Case Keenum look like the undrafted journeyman backup he’d been his entire

Lane Johnson: Eagles looking to 'dethrone' Tom Brady, Patriots

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 14:29:13 GMT

PHILADELPHIA -- The Eagles aren't putting Tom Brady or the New England Patriots on a pedestal. Right tackle Lane Johnson made that perfectly clear moments after their 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC title game. According to Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, the Patriots were installed as 5.5-point favorites in Super Bowl LII. "I know," said Johnson. "Hey, Tom Brady. Pretty boy Tom Brady.
