Minnesota Vikings regain control of season with key win over Eagles

Minnesota Vikings regain control of season with key win over Eagles

At least the Eagles did in the first half on Sunday, dropping to 2-3 after losing to the Minnesota Vikings, 23-21. Mills later came through by breaking up a few passes midway through the third quarter, and the Vikings threatening to blow the game wide open. Minnesota's offense was able to drive the ball up and down the field, while the defense got vast pressure on Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz. If the Giants win on Thursday the Eagles will be sitting in last place in the NFC East. I wasn't trying to go for anything special, just trying to wrap him up and get him to the ground the proper way so I wouldn't get a flag. Offensive Tackle Lane Johnson missed a block that resulted in the sack and fumble that was returned for a touchdown. That drive ended with Wentz being strip-sacked by Stephen Weatherly; Wentz lost the ball and it was recovered by Linval Joseph (who gave us big man touchdown and big man recovery).

This might sound like a repeated point from last week.

"It feels good", said Latavius Murray, who replaced Cook.

"It's hard. Because if you hit a quarterback in the waist and slide down, which can happen if you're off balance because pass rushing is hard, you're going to slide down", defensive end Chris Long said. But they lost 10 yards and had to punt.

It didn't end up working out for the Eagles.

When teams start to lose game's it can cause issues in the locker room and there seem to be some grumblings of that with the Philadelphia Eagles and Jay Ajayi.

It was a momentum killer as it appeared that the Eagles were going to get back into the game. The score was set up by a 68-yard throw from Thielen to the Eagles 27.

If last year's Philadelphia Eagles developed a reputation for pounding people with the run, this year's squad has struggled to keep up. Hopefully, that changes because if not, they will not be making a return to the postseason.

On Sunday, with the two teams meeting again, the Eagles quarterback had a chance to put his own stamp on a big win.

Despite not having solid protection from the offensive line, Wentz still did everything in his power to try to get the Eagles a win. For now, we can't worry about the Rams or Saints or any other team. He wasn't very effective on third down (3-for-7 for 40 yards, one sack, just two first downs). Adam Thielen recorded his fifth straight game with 100 yards receiving, becoming the third player in National Football League history with 100 receiving yards in each of team's first five games of the season, joining Charley Hennigan in 1961 (Oilers) and Bob Boyd in 1954 (Rams), according to Elias.

Through the early part of the season, Smallwood has made his presence felt not only in the running game but also as a receiver.
