Grading the Eagles after the 23-21 loss to the Vikings

Eagles confident rookie DE Josh Sweat can make an impact filling in for Derek Barnett

Turnovers took points off the board for the Eagles and in the case of a fumble return for a touchdown, gave the Vikings points directly off a turnover.

"Credit to Coach Flip for being aggressive as a play caller, giving us a chance", Cousins said.

Right tackle Lane Johnson getting beat badly by Stephen Weatherly on an inside rush that knocked the ball loose from Wentz. And though Wentz put up sparkling numbers against the Vikings - 24-for-35, 311 yards, two touchdowns, no interceptions - he had not been the same quarterback he was last season, not yet. Instead, they were awarded a first down and eventually scored a touchdown to take a 17-3 lead on the drive.

"We didn't have any continuity at the end of last season, and we won the Super Bowl, so I don't want to say it's the end-all-be-all, but it definitely helps", center Jason Kelce said. Stefon Diggs caught 10 passes for 91 yards.

"I can't do that", Ajayi said. But another illegal formation penalty followed and Wentz was called for intentional grounding. "I do think when we picked our spots, we were pretty efficient". "I felt like that jump started us to go out there and get the win".

Eric Kendricks forced Jay Ajayi to fumble at the Vikings 5 on the first drive of the third quarter.

With the Vikings looking for a spark in the running game, Thomas got some early action after playing sparingly early in the season. "I'd like to have that play back, no question". "At the same time, we have to be accountable".


Since being named the starter last month, quarterback Carson Wentz has not been given great protected by his offensive line.

Three illegal formation penalties on the receivers were inexcusable.

"We need those guys", Pederson said.

Thielen, who went for 116 yards on 7 catches and a touchdown against the Eagles, is the first player in the Super Bowl era to have more than 100 yards in the first five games of the season.

"We're just exhausted of hearing it every game", Wendell Smallwood said of the mistakes. "Obviously, we kind of have some ebbs and flows as an offense - slow start, seemed like we got some momentum, hurt ourselves again".

The Vikings recaptured the spirit of what makes this team so good; why they haven't been counted out in the NFC picture despite going through a host of ups and downs during the most hard stretch on their schedule.
