The Saints have strawberry floated off, but they need to come back out to kick the extra point. :lol:

Never seen anything like that. My brother is a Patriots fan, I'm a Vikings man - could still absolutely be our teams in the big one come February. Skol Vikes!

I’d like to see Vikings vs Patriots in Super Bowl but you never know if the Jags could win against the Patriots. Anything can happen in this sport like tonight! Un-fucking-believable!

Honestly what a crazy day of sport yesterday, still cannot get over that, I thought the Vikings had blown it on 3 separate occasions, including when Keenum threw that final pass. I really hope the Vikings can go all the way #stopthepats

It is quite funny that the NFC championship game is the battle of the 2015 St. Louis Rams QB's

Maybe Fisher was on to something after all!

One thing that is obvioius is that now more than ever defense wins championships, no matter how much the NFL stacks the rules in favour of offenses if you build a good D youll do well in the playoffs. I think a lot of that has to do with how refereeing will change in the playoffs, they want to let teams play a bit more and have the players decide who wins, they dont wanna be throwing flags all the time just cos guys are playing hard. Stuff that would draw a flag in the regular season is let go in the playoffs so corners and safetys can be a bit more confrontational with receviers, I think that makes a huge difference to how a team approaches a playoff game compared to a regular season game and means a good D can be a bit more aggresive.

I can’t get over it yet from last night and what a cliffhanger ending it was. :(

I’m proud how the Saints fought it back in the second half but we were rattled by the Vikings in the first half as their defensive were really good. If we played like the second half in the first half, we would have won by it.

Who Dat Nation! We will come back stronger next season. I love New Orleans Saints. :wub:

Super Bowl - I don’t see why not if the Vikings can win it as their defensive are really good and I believe they’re No.1 in the ranking? Also, if they win the Conference and they may have an advantage being play at the home stadium.

The Jaguars have surprised me this year to be honest. I’ve witnessed they destroyed Baltimore Ravens at Wembley and I couldn’t believe it.

I think we are in a treat with four teams left this year!

I dont see it being that much of an advantage to be honest, its not like the stadium will be stuffed to the rafters with Vikings fan, the mix will be about the same as it will at every Superbowl. The players routines around the game will also be disrupted from the norm as well with press days and all that kind of stuff so the home game routine will be out the window. Also, its the AFCs year to be the "home" team so if the Vikes do make it they could potentially be turfed out of their dressing room, not a huge deal but all these little things feed into home field advantage and I dont think those advantages are there in the Superbowl.

Having said that I would love to see the Vikings make it, they have some great fans and the novelty of having a team playing in their own stadium would make for some interesting viewing.

I had a small 4-way accumulator on the games over the weekend, thought that Jaguars-Steelers was going to be the one that would potentially screw me...was pretty tense checking the score on my phone last night. :slol: Did a double-take when I saw that the Vikings has clinched it. £72 in the bag. :toot:

I should have done one, I usually do one but Atlanta being the favourite in Philly really threw me so I stayed away. Ah well, live and learn.

The surrounding areas of Minneapolis on game day are amazing. Several dedicated tail gating areas including exclusive ones that you have to have a season ticket and/or a tattoo to get into. Live bands and even the drummers from the stadium doing the rounds, the vibe created in the city really is remarkable.

Stadium is immaculate though.

Yeah, that's true.

So, it's NFL Conference Championship this weekend! :toot:

Desperate for Vikes Pats Super Bowl. It’ll be a great family fight as my brother loves the New England, the glory hunting scum that he is. I liked the Vikes when they were pish. :slol:
