Are the Vikings a paper tiger this year? Despite their 13-4 record last season, 11 of those wins were by one score or less, and they were bounced out of the playoffs by an overachieving Giants team in the first round.
The Vikings' first game of this season, a 20-17 loss against the Baker Mayfield-led Tampa Bay Buccaneers, doesn't offer much hope. However, Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins passed for 344 yards and two touchdowns, with more than half that production going to star receiver Justin Jefferson. Cousins did not help his cause with one interception and two fumbles, though, and Minnesota's rushing attack was particularly anemic with just 41 yards on the ground.
On the other side of the ball, the Philadelphia Eagles eked out a win against the New England Patriots; largely thanks to its defense, the Eagles were able to jump out to an early 16-0 lead against the Pats, and then did just enough to stay ahead until the end of the game. The Eagles managed just 267 yards of total offense (170 passing, 97 rushing), but a pick-six interception by Darius Slay helped keep them in front the entire game.
Last season, the Eagles and the Vikings also faced off in week 2, with the Eagles beating the Vikings 24-7.
The current line on the game, according to Caesar's Sportsbook, is Philadelphia -6 with an over/under of 49 points. That's lower than earlier this week, when the Eagles were favored by 7 points.
As of an hour before the game on September 14, the following players were listed as inactive for each team:
Andre Carter (LB), Garrett Bradbury (C), Jaren Hall (QB), Nick Muse (TE), Jacquelin Roy (DE)
Kenneth Gainwell (RB), Tanner McKee (QB), Albert Okwuegbunam (TE), Moro Ojomo, Tyler Steen (G)
IR: Nakobe Dean (LB)
