NFL: NFC Divisional Playoff-Atlanta Falcons at Philadelphia Eagles Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles are going to the NFC Championship Game.

This is really happening.

Posted by Bleeding Green Nation: For Philadelphia Eagles Fans on Saturday, January 13, 2018

Despite being home underdogs to the Falcons in the Divisional Round, the Eagles were able to pull off the “upset” on Saturday night to beat Atlanta 15-10.

And not only are the Eagles going to the NFC Championship Game. They’ll be hosting the damn thing at Lincoln Financial Field next Sunday, January 21! Start time is 6:30 PM.

The Eagles will be playing the winner of Sunday’s Divisional Round game between the No. 2 seed Minnesota Vikings and the No. 4 seed New Orleans Saints. The Vikings are currently four-point favorites in that matchup.

No Carson Wentz. No Jason Peters. No Darren Sproles. No Jordan Hicks. No Chris Maragos.

And yet ... here the Eagles are, only ONE WIN AWAY from playing in Super Bowl 52.

You really have it hand it to Doug Pederson and these players.

How can you not love this team?!
