Vikings vs. Eagles preview:
The Vikings are still undefeated on the season, and their closest game came against the Green Bay Packers. Minnesota won that game 17-14, but the rest of their wins have come by at least nine points, and three of their five wins have come by double digits. Sam Bradford has the Minnesota Vikings offense firing on all cylinders and the defense has been dominant thus far.
The Eagles and Carson Wentz were the talk of the town after three weeks of the NFL season, but the rhetoric surrounding that team has changed swiftly. The Eagles raced out to three straight wins to open the season, including a dominant performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Philly has lost two in a row and now face the best team in the NFL.
The Vikings and Eagles have played 25 times in history, with the Eagles owning a 13-9 advantage in the regular season. The Eagles has the edge 3-0 in playoff games.
Vikings vs. Eagles prediction:
The Vikings defense has been incredible so far this season. Philly brings a rookie quarterback into the contest, which will be the Eagles toughest test of the season.
Bradford has been consistent since taking over for injured quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, and will look to provide more of the same against the Eagles.
