The New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles clinched their spots in Super Bowl LII after winning their respective conference championship games on Sunday.

The defending champion Patriots defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-20 in the AFC Championship after trailing by ten points in the fourth quarter. Quarterback Tom Brady connected with wide receiver Danny Amendola for two scores in the final eight minutes to complete the Patriots comeback.

In the NFC Championship, the top-seeded Eagles dismantled the Minnesota Vikings in Philadelphia 38-7. The Vikings took an early 7-0 lead in the first quarter, but quarterback Nick Foles, who has filled in for injured starter Carson Wentz, led the Eagles to 38 unanswered points.

The Patriots and the Eagles will get a week off before heading to Minneapolis, MN for Super Bowl LII at U.S. Bank Stadium on February 4. The game will be aired on NBC starting at 3:30pm.
