The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook has set Philadelphia as a 3.5 home underdog to Minnesota for Sunday's NFC Championship Game at Lincoln Financial Field.
Which Blake Bortles will show up against the Patriots? Can the Eagles get more out of Nick Foles against the Vikings? These are the major questions facing each of the NFL's remaining teams.
