That is the last time we had a cinderella quarterback of this magnitude assured to play in the Super Bowl. With Philadelphia’s Nick Foles and Minnesota’s Case Keenum, the NFC has given us two of the most unlikely quarterbacks in conference title history. Foles will become the fourth player to start a conference championship with three or fewer regular-season starts. Keenum meanwhile, should he win Sunday, would be just the third undrafted quarterback to start a Super Bowl.
The Minnesota Vikings pulled off one of the all-time shockers against New Orleans in their divisional round playoff game Sunday. Down 24-23 with just 25 seconds left, Case Keenum and company almost seemed resigned to the fact their season was about to end. But lightning struck in the form of an improbable 61-yard, walk-off touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs. 29-24 Vikings. Twitter nearly broke, and the influx of athlete’s reactions to the miraculous ending was pretty cool.
Mychal and Eric Kendricks’ path to becoming a star studded, lightning fast duo of NFL linebackers began at a performing arts school. This weekend, Mychal, 27, will be in Philadelphia, trying to get the Eagles to the NFC championship game. Eric, 25 will be in Minnesota, trying to get the Vikings there, too. And wouldn’t that be something — brother vs. brother for a shot at the Super Bowl.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
