After backup quarterback Nick Foles thrust the Eagles to a 38-7 victory over the Minnesota Vikings in Sunday’s NFC Championship, the City of Brotherly Love melted down in epically profane fashion. “Yo, it’s crazy. [Carson] Wentz goes down, Big D–k Nick stepping up,”

Unlikely NFC Championship a throwback to classic matches

PHILADELPHIA — It might as well be the 1970s, when the Purple People Eaters played, or the 1990s, when Buddy Ryan’s Eagles were one of the most feared units in the league: Defense is still winning championships. Amid an era of the spread offense and no touching receivers downfield,
