Watch the Vikings try to continue postseason magic on the Yahoo Sports app

The AFC and NFC championships kick off this weekend, and you can watch them LIVE and FREE on the Yahoo Sports app. Who’s playing? What’s at stake? We’ve got you covered right here.

MINNESOTA VIKINGS:
What you need to know

Who and when are they playing?
Minnesota travels to Lincoln Financial Field to play the Philadelphia Eagles at 6:40 p.m. ET on Sunday.

Who’s favored?
Minnesota has a slight edge over Philadelphia, in large part because Philadelphia’s not going to be running out quarterback Carson Wentz. But Wentz, injured several weeks ago, doesn’t play defense.

Can Minnesota keep the magic going?
Last Sunday, Minnesota pulled off one of the most dramatic comebacks in sports history by beating the New Orleans Saints on a prayer of a touchdown throw as time expired. The question, of course, is whether the Vikings can ride the vibe of that miracle to a Super Bowl … which would be the first Super Bowl where the host team played.

What do the numbers say?
In the postseason, the Eagles hold a 3-0 advantage; all-time, the teams are tied at 13-13. The Vikings boast the league’s No. 1 defense and No. 1 scoring defense, which doesn’t bode well for replacement QB Nick Foles. For a complete preview, go here, and then watch the game on the Yahoo Sports app on Sunday.
