Vikings vs Eagles

The Vikings vs Eagles defeated the Minnesota Vikings last season’s NFC Championship game. The Vikings hope to produce a different result in a regular season matchup when the two teams meet on Sunday at 1:25 p.m. PT/4:25 p.m. PT on FOX.

What to Know
On Sunday Philadelphia take on Minnesota at 4:25 p.m. Philadelphia are the favorites in this one — although they were the favorites in their last matchup, too, so the odds might count for a little less.

Philadelphia fought the good fight in their overtime contest last Sunday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result. They fell just short of Tennessee by a score of 23-26. Philadelphia’s loss came about despite a quality game from Carson Wentz, who passed for 348 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Minnesota came within a touchdown against the Rams, but wound up with a 31-38 loss. This makes it the second defeat in a row for Minnesota.

With both teams hitting sour notes in their previous games, they will no doubt be looking to produce a better outcome in this one. The two teams might be coming in a bit winded after having run the length of the field multiple times (Philadelphia picked up 465 yards, Minnesota 476).
