seems almost incredible that the Eagles have slipped to #6 amongst the NFC playoff contenders and that the Rams, Panthers and Saints were seemingly playing to lose in week 17 so as to line themselves up for a playoff game in Philadelphia

They're going to kick the crap out of whichever NFC South team that they play next Saturday.
These dome teams and/or warm weather teams have to come to Philly and play in the outdoor cold - and possible rain. Good Luck.


Every team that they would play in the NFC playoffs would either be a dome team or a warm weather team.
Case Keenum in the cold. I don't think so.
It's going to be 40 degrees in Philly next weekend......which isn't that cold.

Case Keenum would love to travel to Philadelphia just so that he could warm up.

These dorks who don't understand that all the Vikings have to do is practice outside (in even worse weather).

Philadelphia will be downright tropical for the Vikes.

The reality is that in NFL football the guy playing Quarterback makes a big difference, possibly THE difference. The Eagles went from having the clear MVP of the league as QB to a veteran back up who is streaky at best, and is playing poorly. Their Defense, especially their Secondary is NOT good enough to carry them.

The Saints won in the playoffs at Philly just a few years ago. Also for what it's worth during a couple of recent mediocre seasons, the Saints oddly and suddenly were playing far better on the road, but couldn't buy a win at the Super Dome. I haven't seen any indication where the Sints have had problems outdoors, even on colder days in recent years.

Practicing in the cold vs playing an actual NFL football playoff game are two different things.

Philly hasn't exactly had much success in playing cold weather football games this year, maybe they practiced better than they played tho

They beat Oakland in an almost meaningless game and the 2nd stringers lost 6-0 to the Dallas 1st stringers, when both games were played in about 15 degree temperatures.
The 1st stringers were 1-0 and the 2nd stringers were 0-1.
If you want to call that "not having much success", then be my guest.

Sure. But practicing in worse weather than what the game will be played in can minimize (and in my opinion negate) any cold weather advantage Philly would otherwise have. The Vikings can easily prepare for dog**** weather, which is much different than Southern teams.

Also, the Eagles will have already played by the time the Vikes do next Sunday, so they could open up the five 90 x 55 foot doors and make it stupid cold inside the stadium (even though they never would).
