Now that the Divisional Round of the 2018 NFL Playoffs is over, the schedule for next week’s Conference Championship games is officially set.
The Philadelphia Eagles will host the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship Game at Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles have opened the game as 3.5 point underdogs. Philly will be looking to pull off an “upset” for the second week in a row. With a win over Minny, the Eagles can advance to their first Super Bowl since the 2004 season.
The New England Patriots will host the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Championship Game. The Patriots opened as nine-point favorites. It’s always difficult to beat Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, but Jacksonville’s defense will give them a chance to do just that.
It’s pretty crazy to think that Brady, Nick Foles, Case Keenum, and Blake Bortles are the final four quarterback remaining in the playoffs. No one saw this coming.
Let’s take a look at the entire remaining playoffs schedule.
