Should be a good game and one MN needs to win. The Eagles pass rush worries me, didn’t they have 10 sacks yesterday? Wentz doesn’t look good this year so hopefully the defense can keep Philly under 20. 

Its the pressure and potential for Cousins turning the ball over and folding that has me worried.

Their run defense is best in the league, which might mean we need Cousins to. beat them through the air. 🤢

Homefield advantage helps.

Let's go surprise the world. Even ourselves. Skol Vikings!!

Have the Eagles really faced anybody who can run the ball? Just looking at their schedule so far, they haven’t really faced any impressive RBs outside of Bell,  even that game was a blowout due to the Jets playing a 3rd string QB.

Both the Vikings and Eagles have good run defenses, but the Eagles pass defense is a lot worse than the Vikings.  This will certainly be the Eagles' stiffest test against the run, however.

The Eagles had 10 sacks against Luke Falk and David Fales. In their previous 4 games against Keenum, Ryan, Stafford, and Rodgers they had 3 sacks total. Not sure their pass rush is all that formidable.

It’s not like Cousins is that great in the pocket, he leads the league in fumbles every year for a reason.

While I understand the point, it should be noted that Cousins has never led the league in fumbles...this is the first year that he has, but we'll have to wait and see if that continues...and right now, he's currently tied with Minshew, who has 7 already.

Home game vs +0.500 team ... who have a banged up secondary.

If we can't get this one, its curtains for playoffs.

By my count, Cousins only has 3 fumbles that you would attribute to his pocket awareness issues.

That's because Daunte Culpepper is retired......heyoooo!

We played a good game vs Eagles last year in Philly. Hope we can repeat it this year. Philly's weakness is their secondary. I would be disappointed if we don't come out slinging the ball.
