Minnesota Vikings regain control of season with key win over Eagles

Minnesota Vikings regain control of season with key win over Eagles

The score may have ended up 23-21, but those who watched the game saw the Vikings beat up that Philadelphia Eagles offense.

Now the Eagles (2-3) have lost two games in a row for the first time since 2016, which was the previous time they had a losing record.

To make this situation even more hard to deal with, Ajayi is in the middle of the final year of his contract, meaning the Eagles could be in a hard position this offseason when it comes to determining whether it's worth bringing him back for another year. Quarterback Carson Wentz, who led the National Football League in third-down passing previous year, completed just three of seven third-down passes for 40 yards and one sack.

"I have no idea what the other theory [for his benching] would be", Pederson said, "because everything in this business is performance-based". Only 22 percent of the plays against the Vikings were called runs.

Linval Joseph snatched Wentz's fumble out of the air and rumbled the distance to give the Vikings a 10-3 lead in the second quarter. Stephen Weatherly knocked the ball loose and Wentz couldn't recover to catch Joseph from behind after the strip-sack. "I told myself that I know I've done this thousands and thousands and thousands of times".

Philadelphia finished with 283 passing yards on 35 attempts.

Eric Kendricks forced Jay Ajayi to fumble at the Vikings 5 on the first drive of the third quarter. "I have to self-examine", Pederson said. "They have a lot of fun", Cousins said. The 9-yard sack was wiped out by a personal foul call on Bennett, and the half-the-distance penalty placed the ball on the Eagles' 11.

They went three-and-out on three of their first five drives. Pederson tried to accept the blame but the players held themselves accountable.

The Eagles and Vikings are meeting in a rematch of last season's NFC Championship game at Lincoln Financial Field today. The Eagles had to settle for a 30-yard Jake Elliott field goal with 12:27 left in the half. He has at least 100 yards in all five games. Cousins credited offensive coordinator John DeFilippo, who was Philadelphia's quarterbacks coach the past two seasons.

The victory moved the Vikings to 2-2-1, tying them for second in the NFC North with the Packers. "It's not just the o-line, it's not just me, it's not just the backs".

In the two games that the Philadelphia Eagles have won this season, the team's defense came through with crucial fourth-quarter stops to make up for the fact that the offense was inconsistent. Cousins threw a TD on the drive.

"He went low into the quarterback's knees with his shoulder, with force", Coleman said to a pool reporter. Sproles has missed the last four games with a hamstring injury.
