Eagles vs Vikings Preview
Both the Eagles and Vikings got off to slower than expected starts to the season, but have bounced back nicely of late.
Much was made of Minnesota’s struggles through the air, but Kirk Cousins — who signed a massive deal with the team prior to the 2018 season — turned things around against the Giants. He passed for a season high 306 yards and two touchdowns, finishing with a QB rating of 138.6.
With the passing game struggling in a big way early, wide receiver Adam Thielen spoke up.
“At some point, you’re not going to be able to run the ball for 180 yards, even with the best running back in the NFL,” Thielen said after a loss to the Bears. “And that’s when you have to be able to throw the ball, you have to be able to make plays, you have to be able to hit the deep balls. You have to do that because otherwise it’s too easy for teams to just tee up and rush the quarterback. We have to be able to run the ball and pass the ball.”
Cousins heard him and fed Thielen for a season-high 7 catches for 130 yards and a pair of scores.
Another Vikes wide receiver Stefon Diggs reportedly wanted a trade. But he admitted this week that the vibe has changed in the locker room.
“I wasn’t unhappy or uncomfortable with my role. I said I wanted to win. That’s where my frustrations were,” Diggs said.
Cousins’ contributions will be especially important against the Eagles, who have the best run defense since 2016 and are allowing a league-low 63 rushing yards per game this season. Vikings running back Dalvin Cook is having a career year with 542 yards this season, good for second in the league.
“It looks like they’ve clicked the speed of the film up a little bit. They’re making big plays everywhere. It’s not just Dalvin Cook,” Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said. “We’re a pretty strong run defense. They’re a pretty strong run offense. It’s going to be a great matchup.”
“I really liked his explosiveness, not only with the ball in his hands, but he can catch the ball out of the backfield,” Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said. “There was a lot of explosive plays on his tape. I was really comfortable with him, and we were close to pulling the trigger on that one.”
As for the Super Bowl memories, the Eagles know it will be a little different this time around.
“It’s a great place. Obviously, we had success the last time, but this is different. Crowd is going to be different. Environment is going to be different. It’s a noon game,” Pederson said. “We have to get ourselves ready to play a good football team, and obviously the crowd will be in their favor.”
