7:02 am
round. 33 degrees in philadelphia, reading sitting at 37, trenton 39, allentown 39 and the poconos 31. last week during the divisional round against the atlanta falcons, temperatures were around freezing and falling the whole game with wind chills in the teens. we're talking about temperatures in the 40s this go-around and not much of a wind chill at all. mother nature not key operating. cloud cover to the north for now. it will be drifting down to the south as the day wears on. increasing clouds but it will stay dry starting out with sunshine but those clouds will gradually lower and thicken throughout the day. 52 is our very mild high for today. the normal is 40 but there's still a bit of a breeze so we're going to be dealing with somewhat of a wind chill. you can see it's chilly early on, 7:00 a.m. 30 degrees. 9:00 a.m., 33. by 11:00 a.m., 43. and mid to upper 40s as we get into the first part of the afternoon. so again, the actual high for the day is 52, but it's going to feel more like the 40s, which is still a lot better than what we
7:03 am
dealt with last week. i'll be back in just a few minutes have the eagles forecast for you and we'll track a little rain in the accweather 7-day forecast. >> we are waking up and still living the dream. the eagles playing in the nfc championship game tonight. the eagles take the field as the underdogs against the minnesota vikings and all that's at stake is a trip to the super bowl. >> the birds can spoil the vikings chance to play in the super bowl on their home turf in two weeks. some of the players and fans have bought those dog masks embracing the underdog logo. many are hoping the eagles say uh-uh, not in our house. >> bob brooks is live in south philadelphia, fdr park, where some tailgaters are already flocking toward the linc, aren't they? >> reporter: they are. i actually have one with me right now. i'm going to do a live interview with big jim cob. i'm not that sort of a guy.

he is a tall person. you are here at 6:00 a.m. the game is not until about 6:40 p.m. do you think that's wild being here this early. >> it's crazy but crazy is what eagles fans are going to have to come forth with to get us over the hump. >> you're the spotter for your team? >> yes. my tailgate group. we've been coming here for about 25 years or so and this is the championship game and we have to be in place and ready to prepare for the game as all the other eagles fans here are going to be doing. >> big game. what's your predictions what do you think? >> i've been through a number of the games all season, went out to l.a. when carson got hurt. this is for everything. this is what they play for. and my prediction is that at the end of the day we will be headed to minnesota for the super bowl. >> we can only hope so man.
7:05 am

7:06 am
to park there right along broad street. the city placed flyers on cars that were parked along broad street last night and right along the median warning drivers don't park your cars here. parking will be prohibited from south street to the stadium complex and that includes the northbound and the southbound median areas. >> jeff chirico is live in mayfair this morning and that intersection on police radar a little bit more than usual this weekend. >> reporter: that's right, nydia. good morning. police are taking security seriously across the city. officials in all 21 districts have been told to identify those hot spots where they may experience or could expect perhaps some out-of-control celebrations, one of them right here. i'm just outside the mayfair diner. you can see the green balloons are up across the streets, as well as some of those no-marking signs. because this is one of the hot spots, parking will be prohibited here in this area from 3:00 this afternoon until
7:07 am
3:00 tomorrow morning. now police don't want a repeat of some of the raucous behavior they saw during the 2008 world series celebration. police had a news conference on friday laying out their game plan. basically it's an "all hands on deck" type of approach. businesses here across the city are being told to take some precautions, maybe put down the gates, remove any objects that could be easily moved or thrown. all just trying to get ahead of this, trying to make sure that any sort of celebration tonight will be a safe one. reporting live in mayfair, jeff chirico, channel 6 action news. nydia, gray? >> very important jeff. thank you. so for the eagles and vikings, it comes down to this moment. it is win or go home. neither team has any guarantee win or if they will get this chance again. >> quarterback nick foles celebrated his 29th birthday and a win today would make it a
7:08 am
fantastic gift. jeff skversky continues our coverage. >> reporter: this is what you dream about. eagles quarterback nick foles has been thinking about this moment since he was a little kid. but foles says he's not nervous. he's excited. by the way, not afraid to make a mistake in the biggest game of his life. eagles looking to advance to only their third super bowl in team history. the nfc championship game has not been kind to the birds over the years but the vikings are 0 for their last 5 with a trip to the super bowl at stake. nobody has been worse over the last 40 years. do the eagles need extra motivation i don't think so to beat the vikings. there is not much more to say than this. >> when you step on the field we're always playing for each other. that's our strength as a team we're playing for the guy next to us. we're playing for the guys who got injured, playing for the city. you're not playing just for yourself. >> at the end of the day you shouldn't need more motivation. it's a really good team in minnesota who have been kind of underappreciated themselves all year. i know they're hungry.
7:09 am
they are a really good football team. >> there's going to be, we need to make sure we tuned in for all 60 minutes. >> we've got to win this one. just being here isn't it. we're not getting any award for coming to this game. we've got to win. >> reporter: the eagles have never lost a playoff game to minnesota. the last time they went to the super bowl 13 years ago, the eagles beat the vikings and the falcons along the way. perhaps history will repeat itself tonight at the nfc championship game at the linc. >> jeff, ducis have you covered all day long and there may be no more loyal fan than one watching right from the hospital bed. we want to introduce you to wendy robinson. the cold impacted her lungs and in her words she took a bit of a beating. although she can't be at the linc tonight, she says she will be there in spirit watching the

7:33 am
and folks started lining up at 6:00 this morning. >> reporter: hey, gray and nydia. they did. there's been slight confusion on what time the park is opening up. 8:00, we previously had reported 6:00, but again we are notified now 8:00 sharp the park should be opening up. they just put a sign outside of here at fdr to the gates, 40 bucks cash that's what it's going to cost to get you in. and we have some tips for people heading down to the stadium and complex. i want to bring up the graphic here and show everyone that. the wells fargo lots are going to open up next at 11:30. those are lots m, n and p. then citizens bank park, those are going to open up at 3:30, approximately 3:30. that's when that's going to happen. but like you said, 6:00 this morning there was a man here whose named was jim cob. the first man to try to get his tailgate set up. i talked to him about his early
7:34 am
arrival to the park. let's take a listen. >> do you think it's a little crazy to be out here at 6:00 a.m.? >> no. this is what i have to do. i'm the spotter for my group and i have to get the spot. there's a couple of i -- amenities that this spot offers that i'm not going to talk about because i don't want competition in the future. but no. this is what i do for the group and yeah. it has to be done. >> i'm sure all the tailgaters out there have their secrets and that's what makes it special. it's the nfc championship game. i've got my best green turtle neck on. we want to remind everyone that win or lose, we want to do the game right, stay safe and certainly enjoy everything that's happening today. bob brooks, channel 6 action news. >> looking great as always. >> of course it is easy being green in philadelphia.
7:35 am
the skyline will go green again tonight ahead of tonight's game. >> it will be a beautiful good times and a whole lot of good people out there. but it also means serious business keeping crowd control and not just at the stadium. jeff chirico live in the mayfair section of philadelphia with security preparations. this is serious business, jeff. >> reporter: it is. i mean this is going to be a great day hopefully anyway. but police want everyone to enjoy the day safely. they're taking security very, very seriously and they have identified hot spots throughout the city that could see some celebrations that may become a little over celebratory and perhaps one of them is right here in northeast right in mayfair. and so right along here on frankfort after, there will be no parking allowed. from 3:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. tomorrow. cars will be towed if they do in fact park here. police laid out their security
7:36 am
plan on friday afternoon at a news conference saying it will be a "all hands on deck" approach to security today and some visitors from minnesota told us last night that they're already seeing that increased police presence. >> we've seen a lot of police. so i mean they have it pretty well protected. >> you know, we're not intimidating people so i don't think we're looking for trouble. >> you don't want to hurt other people, damage property. you don't want to get hurt yourself. >> reporter: nonetheless, businesses here in mayfair and across the city are taking some precautions as they await the final score on tonight's game. that's the very latest here from mayfair, jeff chirico, channel 6 action news. >> we hope people do use common sense. thank you. eagles quarterback nick foles and vikings qb case keenum
7:37 am
have crossed paths before. >> some points of concern from the eagles. the winding road crossing paths. >> reporter: big name quarterbacks are the certifiable superstars in the nfl from brady to bradshaw to montana. then there's a battle of the backups. foles versus keenum. smaller names with huge aspirations. >> that's what's fun about these two guys is they've overcome everything. >> it's been a crazy journey where we're blessed to be in this game. it's been a wild ride this season. >> i know this is what you all you guys predicted back in the days was a foles versus keenum nfc championship. so good job to all you guys that predicted that. >> reporter: it's the backstory of these backups that makes things even more interesting. pay close attention. both began their careers in
7:38 am
2012. foles drafted with the eagles, keenum signed with houston. both played for the rams in 2015, but that was because foles traded st. louis for sam bradford. foles leaves for kansas city while keenum signs in minnesota as the backup to, wait for it, sam bradford who the eagles traded to the vikings after drafting carson wentz. two quarterbacks both backups until wentz goes down, bradford goes down, now both back in the spotlight fighting for the super bowl. >> it's importance to remember that vikings quarterback case keenum completed 67% of his passes outside the pocket. that was number one in the national football league. that's called second reaction throws. i talked to chris long his former teammate in st. louis. long told me that case keenum is
7:39 am
like a mini brett favre. once you get him you've got to get him on the ground. from the moment on sunday morning that doug pederson walked into this building, he's been all over special teams to clean up their mistakes that they had saturday night that nearly cost them the game against atlanta. kicking the ball out of bounds against the minnesota vikings and giving case keenum a sure field that's not going to work on sunday night. if car son wentz were the starter, they would be a favorite, instead they are home dogs against a dome team on the road. remember this. there have been four instances since the year 2000 that a dome team has gone on the road in the championship game.
7:40 am
those teams lost all four. 0 and 4. and that's why i think the eagles will win this game 20-13. guys, back to you. >> we will find out in 10:59:04. >> indeed we will. >> join us for the pregame action at 5:00 p.m. we'll be live with post game reports as soon as the game ends. plus we'll have an extra hour of action news starting at 10:00 p.m. right here on channel 6. it all wraps up with extended live eagles coverage. >> and our coverage of eagles playoff run continues on 6abc.com. right now you can get analysis from our action news sports team and a look down the road with former eagles quarterback, also showing you how some of the areas biggest eagles fans are getting ready for tonight's big game. >> our son just walked into the bedroom and said dad the eagles are going to win today.
