Despite losing their starting running back (Dalvin Cook) and starting quarterback (Sam Bradford) to injury, the purple and gold are once again on the precipice of greatness and looking to becoming the first team in National Football League history to host the Super Bowl. With the AFC being the designated home team in this year's Super Bowl, the AFC champion would be assigned the Vikings' practice facility and locker room and the NFC champion would practice at the University of Minnesota and get the road locker room.

With the Falcons defense playing its best football, Foles and the Eagles will have their hands full in the Divisonal Round. However, they have turned their season around, and are looking to make another playoff run. Blake Bortles was a disaster, completing 12-of-23 passes for 87 yards while also adding 10 rushes for 88 additional yards.
