Michael Bennet and Eagles fans were not happy with a roughing call on a drive that ended with a Vikings touchdown. In four of the Birds' five games, their opponent has marched 50 yards or more on their first drive.

Three illegal formation penalties on the receivers were just a part of the slew of mistakes the Eagles made.

Wentz could only do so much, and it wasn't almost enough, as the Vikings avenged last year's blowout loss in the NFC Championship Game by handing the Eagles a 23-21 loss. He's a huge upgrade from Case Keenum, who has already matched his interception total (seven) with the Broncos this season than he had with the Vikings last season. Also meh. Still a better day than Alshon Jeffery, who caught two of eight targets for 39 yards and failed to hang on to a key third-down pass - he got drilled, but the offense had to have it. Shelton Gibson, of all people, provided the Eagles' longest gain of the day with a 48-yard bomb. They are 2-3, and they are 2-3 on merit.

The Eagles went three-and-out on their first possession on Sunday, with two Carson Wentz pass attempts and a sack. That is, until Vikings defensive tackle Linval Joseph TURNED ON THE JETS!

Vikings kicker Dan Bailey then gave Minnesota (2-2-1) a 23-14 lead on a 52-yard field goal with 2:47 left in the game. They bounced back against the Super Bowl Champion Eagles this week beating them 23-21, with a lot of help from star wide receiver Adam Thielen.

U.S. stimulus also adds to the "already-unsustainable" debt and deficit that will undercut future growth, the report warned. The Trump administration has penalized almost half of all imports from China and has threatened more for the other half.

This 64-yard touchdown run, though both remarkable and entertaining to watch, was not Joseph's sole contribution to the win. "I thought that was very impressive to play the game that they played". Two point conversions are made at a roughly 50 percent rate.

The Eagles' vaunted pass rush in the first half was feeble. Roughing the passer. Bennett was called for going low on a tackle that dragged Cousins down by his legs. Philadelphia is now on a two-game losing streak and has to get ready to play the New York Giants on Thursday night.

The Vikings' defense stood tall again after Bradham recovered a Roc Thomas fumble and set the Eagles up at the Minnesota 30-yard line trailing 20-14 with 10:03 to play in the fourth quarter. But Wentz was called for intentional grounding and coach Doug Pederson elected not to let Jake Elliott try a 58-yarder.
