Preview

The NFL's final 4 all overcame injuries to star players

The list of players sitting out this weekend's conference championships is almost as impressive as the starting lineups: Julian Edelman. Carson Wentz. Dalvin Cook. Dont'a Hightower. Allen Robinson. Sam Bradford.

Following the NFL's season of carnage that claimed the likes of, among others, Aaron Rodgers, Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor, J.J. Watt, DeShaun Watson, Odell Beckham Jr. and Joe Thomas, this year's final four all overcame not only the odds - "Minneapolis Miracle , anyone?" - but devastating injuries to key starters.

"We have a tough and resilient team," Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long said of the NFC's top seed , which is missing its second-year QB in Wentz, an MVP hopeful when he blew out a knee in December.
