Vikings-Eagles game balls

Vikings-Eagles game balls

The Eagles made things interesting in the second half on Sunday, but even before they found themselves in a three-score hole midway through the third quarter, there wasn't much commitment to the running game.

The Vikings never trailed again in the game, and in fact, played to the tune of a 20-3 lead well into the third quarter. Vikings backs also averaged a pedestrian 3.2 yards per carry. It's easy to forget, in the wake of Nick Foles' near-flawless play in both the NFC Championship Game and Super Bowl LII, just how often the Eagles won games a year ago because Wentz, more than anyone, won them.

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. "Those are things that, I mean, we've got to take a real hard look in the mirror".

Coach Mike Zimmer likely will continue to utilize Latavius Murray and C.J. Ham as the primary tailbacks in Cook's absence.

"It's unfortunate", Wentz said. "I do think when we picked our spots, we were pretty efficient".

"With the offensive line we have on this team, running the ball like that, that doesn't make sense to me". On Thursday night, the team heads north to East Rutherford, New Jersey for a Thursday night encounter with their NFC East rival, the 1-4 New York Giants.

The loss of Ajayi, who becomes a free agent after this season, is another major blow for a team that has struggled to score points in its first five games.

Kirk Cousins tossed a 3-yard touchdown pass to Adam Thielen to extend the lead to 17-3 at halftime. 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.

Cousins is on pace to throw for a career-high 5,401 yards and 35 touchdowns.

Cook was unable to practice three straight days this past week and will not play against the Eagles today. "But we believed that, so we just did what we did". We're playing like we're a young, rookie team, and we're not. After one last scoring drive from Philadelphia under the two-minute warning, Thielen recovered the Eagles' attempt at an onside kick to put the game away. I wouldn't say we are an undisciplined group.
