On Sunday, the team faced off against the Minnesota Vikings in a rematch from the playoffs, but this time it would be the Vikings coming out with a 23-21 victory.

Soon after Cousins and new offensive coordinator John. So, we got one in this afternoon's Eagles-Vikings game.

Most importantly, the Minnesota Vikings won, and all the beleaguered members of this team-most notably Anthony Barr-were a big part of that win. "All those things we talk about from day in OTAs (organized team activities), we're not doing". Pederson called for the Eagles to go for two.

Sunday's game against the Vikings was a microcosm of the Birds penchant for making critical mistakes on offense. They lost because Wentz doesn't look as sharp this season as he did last season, before he tore two ligaments in his left knee. Midway through the third quarter, defensive teammates Fletcher Cox and Jalen Mills had a heated exchange.

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. And though Wentz put up sparkling numbers against the Vikings - 24-for-35, 311 yards, two touchdowns, no interceptions - he had not been the same quarterback he was last season, not yet.

It appears the season is over for the Philadelphia Eagles' leading rusher, running back Jay Ajayi. Granted, some luck came into play today with Dan Bailey shanking a short field goal, but the Eagles giving up big yards on the game's opening drive is nothing new.

After the Eagles cut the Vikings' lead to 20-14 early in the fourth quarter, Birds linebacker Nigel Bradham recovered a fumble by Minnesota quarterback Kirk Cousins at the Vikings 30-yard line with 10:30 left in the game.

Down 20-3, the Eagles had a first down at the Vikings 15, but Wentz took a sack and they ended up kicking a field goal. The Birds committed two penalties.

"With the offensive line we have on this team, running the ball like that, that doesn't make sense to me". But an illegal formation penalty negated the play.

The Philadelphia Eagles are dealing with a kind of adversity they never faced during their Super Bowl season a year ago.

"These guys really took to heart about the things that we had to try to accomplish to get better at what we're trying to do". Just like he showed in his debut, the young signal made sure to use his legs to pick yards and extends plays.
