The Philadelphia Eagles are set to take on the Minnesota Vikings this week. Which five players are key to an Eagles victory?
Time to buckle up, folks — because the Philadelphia Eagles are going on a wild ride. As the only NFL team with back to back to back road games this season (thanks, Phillies), the Eagles have quite a tough stretch coming up, beginning with the Minnesota Vikings this week.
On Sunday, the Eagles will enter quite a familiar field, as it is the location of their first Super Bowl win in franchise history. None of that matters on Sunday, though, as U.S. Bank Stadium will not be a neutral site for the Eagles this week. The crowd will be against them heavily.
Ever since that 2017 NFC Championship blowout the Eagles constructed against Minnesota, the Vikings and their fans have been out for revenge against the Eagles. They felt a bit satisfied after beating the Eagles at The Linc last season, but this year, they want to defeat the Eagles again.
Last week, the Eagles achieved a winning record for the first time since they went 1-0 on the year. Getting off to a 4-2 start would be ideal for the Eagles as they can remain at the top of the NFC East, but it’s not going to be easy. Everybody needs to be on their A-game this Sunday, especially these five players, who are key to a victory against the Vikings.
