3 takeaways from Eagles Week 5 loss to Vikings

"They have a lot of pride in their work".

In 2018, they seem to have a Super Bowl hangover.

Nick Foles led the Eagles to a 38-7 rout over Case Keenum and Minnesota's top-ranked defense in the NFC title game nine months ago on his way to earning Super Bowl MVP honors against New England. It's easy to forget, in the wake of Nick Foles' near-flawless play in both the NFC Championship Game and Super Bowl LII, just how often the Eagles won games past year because Wentz, more than anyone, won them. But Wentz was called for intentional grounding and coach Doug Pederson elected not to let Jake Elliott try a 58-yarder.

"(Bennett) went low into the quarterback's knees with his shoulder, with force", Coleman said.

Dan Bailey, who missed two field goals earlier, nailed a 52-yard field goal to extend the lead to 23-14 with 2:47 left. "There was a lot of pressure to come in here and get a win".

Soon after Cousins and new offensive coordinator John. For now, we can't worry about the Rams or Saints or any other team. With the score tied 3-3 late in the second quarter, defensive end Stephen Weatherly hit Wentz, forcing a fumble. There to recover the fumble was nose tackle Linval Joseph, who breathed life into the game before he headed to the sideline to get back all the oxygen he expelled on the ultimate big-guy touchdown.

The thing is, Diaz has really nothing to do with the whole thing, except for the fact that he's campaigning to fight Nurmagomedov. The Russian president went on to call Russia "one big family" in which "we need to avoid going to extremes or making any jumps".

They typically are dealt with by experienced judges in the courthouse or region where a judge serves. In fact, Graham raised that possibility in a tirade during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing.

There is also the risk of further severe Southerly winds impinging onto Southern and Eastern coastal areas during the day. Arriva is also cancelling services between Llandudno Junction and Blaenau Ffestiniog on both Friday and Saturday.

Minnesota added another touchdown right before half, thanks to a poor response from the Eagles' offense after Joseph's crowd-silencing touchdown, as it went three-and-out, a drive that was sabotaged by two false start penalties. Running back Jay Ajayi expressed his belief that they should have established the run more, especially early.

"I was watching on the jumbotron", Joseph said. "I have to do a better job". This time the Vikings got their revenge.

The Philadelphia Eagles offense has been, well, offensive, something that was obvious in Sunday's loss to the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings were ranked first in the National Football League both scoring defense and total defense all of last season before falling apart in that game.

While the Vikings would love to not throw the ball as much and get their running game going, it certainly helps when you have a quarterback like Cousins when the run game isn't working. And in a nationally-televised game that presented the Vikings with a chance to reassert themselves before a stretch of three home games in four weeks, their biggest offseason additions delivered. RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) was inactive. Corey Clement hasn't played in the last two because of a quadriceps injury. After the Giants, they host the 3-1 Carolina Panthers and then travel to London to take on the Jags.

It's added up to a 2-3 start for the Eagles after they lost 23-21 to the Minnesota Vikings before nearly 70,000 restless fans at Lincoln Financial Field.
