The Philadelphia Eagles played a very strange game in Detroit last week. They led 38:21 after three quarters against the Lions, and in the end they could have even lost. Nevertheless, they achieved an important triumph and started new season in best possible way.
It was expected that the main Eagles rival in battle for the top of NFC East would be the Dallas Cowboys, but that probably won’t happen. Dak Prescott got injured last week and it seems that this season will be very painful for them. On the other hand, the New York Giants and Washington Commanders are not at the Eagles level and this is a big opportunity for Philadelphia franchise. The Eagles have perhaps the best offensive line in the entire NFL, which allows them a lot of easy runs. They had four rushing touchdowns against the Lions.
Clash with the Minnesota Vikings will show a much more realistic picture of the Eagles. If they can get a win and start this year at 2-0, they can have a very good season ahead of them. If they lose, things won’t go as smoothly as their fans hope.
The Minnesota Vikings excelled last week. They easily beat the Green Bay Packers 23:7 on their home field. There’s no better way to start a new season than when you take down your biggest rival. This further boosted their confidence before the trip to Philadelphia where they will play the Eagles.
When you have players like Kirk Cousins, Dalvin Cook, Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen on offense, it makes the job a lot easier. The defense is a bit weaker this year, but looking at overall picture, the Vikings have an extremely good roster. In previous years, the biggest problem was the toxic atmosphere caused by the bad relationship between Mike Zimmer (head coach) and Rick Spielman (general manager). Both were fired at the end of last season and it had a positive effect.
The Vikings are the best team in the NFC North, but in order to go to the very end, it is necessary to have a good position in their conference. This is game between two potential champions of their respective divisions, which could have a direct impact on the final standings.
These two teams last played against each other three years ago when the Vikings won 38-20 in Minnesota.
Andrew Booth Jr. won’t play for the Minnesota Vikings due to injury. All players are available for the Philadelphia Eagles.
