The offense continues to look out of rhythm to start the game.

Despite returning nearly all the offensive starters from a year ago, the difference in playcallers has made an impact. Last year's offensive coordinator Shane Steichen is now in Indianaoplis as a head coach, while first-year coordinator Brian Johnson continues to learn on the fly.

Whether it is play calling or execution, the Eagles got off to a very slow start. They opened the game with a field goal drive but followed that up with a three-and-out, an interception, and a missed field goal. The offense was even gifted good field position from multiple Minnesota turnovers.

Overall Philadelphia scored just 13 points in the first half with only three points coming off the Vikings' three first-half turnovers. Things could have been a lot different if the Vikings had been scoring to start the game rather than giving it back to the Eagles.
