If last week was the Minneapolis Miracle, this week was the Philadelphia Pounding. Any signs of life shown by the Vikings on their opening touchdown drive were completely snuffed out by the Eagles defensive dominance for the remainder of the game.
Momentum shifted away from the Vikings when a Case Keenum pass was picked off by Patrick Robinson and taken 50 yards to the endzone making the score 7-7. The next score would come from Eagles running back Blount, who trucked Vikings safety Sendejo, willing the Eagles to a lead that would not be relinquished.
The Vikings were driving towards a game tying score when Derek Barnett forced a fumble into the arms of underdog mastermind Chris Long. The Eagles offense apparently didn’t get the memo that the Vikings defense was good – stacking up 31 points of their own to bury the Minneapolis Miracle for good.
