Philadelphia Eagles vs. Minnesota Vikings Prediction

Every year, we're waiting for the Minnesota Vikings to break out.

This could be their year.

The Vikings stunned the Green Bay Packers with a 23-7 win at home. Kirk Cousins led Minnesota, going 23-for-32 with 277 yards passing and two touchdowns.

Justin Jefferson received 184 of those yards with two touchdowns and nine receptions. From a stats standpoint, he had 11 targets and could be the best wide receiver in the game this year.

However, no receiver had more than three catches other than Jefferson. If Jefferson gets shut down one week, the Vikings could end up struggling.

Plus, while Cousins was only sacked once, pass protection is still a big question mark. The offensive line has always been much better in the run game than in pass protection, which ultimately happened on Sunday against Green Bay.

Dalvin Cook rushed for 90 yards on 20 carries and averaged 4.5 yards per carry. Alexander Mattison also earned 4.5 yards per carry on eight carries as Cook's backup.

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Eagles allowed 35 points on defense and also suffered a significant loss, with Derek Barnett tearing his ACL. The Eagles couldn't tackle very well, and the rushing defense didn't have a good time trying to stop DeAndre Swift.

Therefore, the Vikings should be able to get the run game against the Eagles, which would open up the passing game for Justin Jefferson to do his thing.

The Eagles, on the other hand, have a connection between Jalen Hurts and A.J. Brown. Brown caught ten receptions for 165 yards while his teammate, DeVonta Smith, hauled in no catches.

Brown put on a show, but the Eagles will also want to find ways to get Smith involved. After all, Brown caught 10 of the 18 completions for the Eagles. His volume was just as high as Justin Jefferson's, for example.

The Eagles featured three backs around the red zone in the running game. Miles Sanders led the team with 96 carries and a touchdown on 13 carries.

Minnesota played very well defensively against Green Bay, but I think that also had to do with Green Bay simply not having reliable talent in the passing game.

Both offenses have a lot of pieces to score a lot of points. They'll have to get other receivers involved offensively, but again, there's still a ton of talent that could be used for both of these offenses to succeed. Therefore, I will rock with the Over 51.5 in this one.
