54. . . . NFC Championship Game: January 21st, 2018. 2. player

Nothing says ‘great game’ like one that ensures a trip to the Super Bowl, especially if the right team wins. Since being opened in 2003, Lincoln Financial Field has hosted three NFC Championship Games. Two have sent the ‘Birds’ to the Super Bowl.

The first was on January 23rd of 2005 and served as a release of years worth of frustration. The second was a coronation and was nothing short of a party for the final three quarters.

After falling in a 7-0 hole early, momentum shifted with a pass rush, one. where Chris Long affected a Case Keenum pass attempt and the ball fluttered into the waiting arms of Patrick Robinson who returned the interception 50 yards for a touchdown.

No one knew it at the time (the game was tied at seven points apiece), but the rout was on.

The Eagles added 31 unanswered points as Nick Foles had his coming-out party. Apparently, all he needed was some late-season reps to get him ready for some big-game action.

‘Saint Nick’ completed 26 of 33 pass attempts for 352 yards and three touchdowns. Vikings fans who had filmed themselves doing their ‘Skol’ chant on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s steps saw their chant stolen and replaced by the name ‘Foles’.

In all, the Philadelphia Eagles tallied 456 yards of total offense, and their 38-7 blowout win secured their third Super Bowl appearance and their first since Super Bowl XXXIX in 2005. This one isn’t just one of the best wins from 2010 to 2019. It’s one of the best wins in team history.
