The Philadelphia Eagles travel to Minneapolis on Sunday. Here’s the forecast for that and every other game on the Week 6 NFL schedule.
It may be a bit of a stretch to call the Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings ‘rivals’, but they sure do play an awful lot. Normally, there’s a lot of significance to their game (and, at times, a little venom), and in the NFL‘s sixth week of action, it doesn’t appear that things will change much.
On Sunday, Philadelphia travels to US Bank Stadium, the venue that will forever be remembered as the place where the confetti rained down on ‘The Birds’ to celebrate their first-ever Super Bowl title. They beat the Vikings two weeks earlier at Lincoln Financial Field to get there. A season ago, Minnesota took the measure of ‘The Birds’ as they edged them by a score of 23-21.
The Eagles haven’t forgotten that last game, seeing as how they gave the game away, and on Sunday, in a game that will be featured on FOX, ‘The Birds’ know that they have to take care of business on the road. One, it’s the first of three games on the road. Two, they’re tied for the lead in the NFC East with the hated Dallas Cowboys. They get the New York Jets, and these two age-old rivals want to keep pace with each other.
Let’s forecast some games.
