The Philadelphia Eagles fan base has some work to do this weekend.

The Philadelphia Eagles fan base has been spectacular this season, to say the least. After hosting the most memorable NFL Draft in history, the fan base has kept up the energy all throughout the season. At times, games on the road gave the team a home field advantage feel. The way the Eagles fans have traveled all year has been incredible.

As the Eagles are set to host the NFC Championship for the first time since 2004, the Minnesota Vikings are plotting their own little takeover. You heard that right. The Eagles NFC Championship opponents are planning an attempt to take over Lincoln Financial Field this Sunday. Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer asked for it, and now their fans are talking about making it happen.

Let’s be honest right now, there is no possible way that Philadelphia let’s this happen, right? The real true advantage that the Eagles have is the home field factor. Without the home crowd on their side, it is doubtful that their defense plays at the high level that they have played at since being at home from Week 16 and beyond.

Stop them Vikings!

As of right now, there are plenty of re-sale tickets surfing around on the internet. While tickets are pretty easy to find right now, it doesn’t necessarily make them affordable. With the game being a little less than a week from now, it is highly doubtful the Vikings can take over South Philly this weekend.

Being that this is the first real chance that the Eagles have to win a Super Bowl in some time, all of Philadelphia will want to be in attendance for this. Because if the Eagles come away with a victory, it could feel like 2004 all over. A lot of us know how fun those two weeks in Philadelphia were heading into the Super Bowl.

Next: Eagles are, again, home underdogs

So if you haven’t yet, get your tickets to the game on Sunday, Eagles fans. The energy from the stands will be needed and greatly appreciated by the guys playing on the field. Although we have no doubts, let’s not give the Vikings any sort satisfaction leading up to this game. This game is very winnable for the home team and the crowd’s involvement would be a major reason why!
