It’s a must-win game for both sides. Here’s everything you need for the Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings (minus the tickets).
What else needs to be said? It’s almost game time, and here’s how you need to look at every Philadelphia Eagles game for the rest of the season. Treat them like they are playoff games. Both the Eagles and Minnesota Vikings dropped two games in a very competitive NFC early, and both sides can ill afford a third conference loss this early in the season.
After 28 total games, including four meetings in the playoffs, this series is dead even with 14 victories on both sides. The Eagles travel to the site of their lone Super Bowl victory, U.S. Bank Stadium (you’ve probably heard that all week). If you can’t get excited about this one, check your pulse.
