Minnesota Vikings 28 vs 34 Philadelphia Eagles summary, stats and highlights | NFL Week 2
Cousins wasn't finished, as he tried to mount a late comeback with under 2:00 to go, but this TD pass to TJ Hockinson came too late to rescue the Vikings from going 0-2 to start the season. Cousins had another monster night, going for 364 yards and four touchdowns, but for a second straight week turnovers cost them the game.
D'Andre Swift was named the starter after Kenneth Gainwell injured his ribs in Week 1 against the Patriots. In his first game as an Eagle in his home town, he went for 175 yards on 28 carries and this TD run.
Cousins then found KJ Osbourn who shook his defenders off of him and ended up wide open in the back of the endzone to make it a one possession game midway through the fourth quarter.
The Vikings came roaring back from 20 points down to make it a game thanks to a couple of big plays, starting with this pass from Cousins to Jordan Addison for the 62 yard TD to give Minnesota a sliver of hope.
The strip sack led to Jalen Hurts' second QB sneak TD of the game, and just minutes later Hurts found Devonte Smith for a 63 yard bomb! Hurts went 18/23 for 193 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT in the Eagles home debut.
Coming out of the second half break the Eagles didn't ease the pressure on Cousins in the slightest. Josh Sweat came off the end and strip sacked the MIN QB for the Eagles fourth recovered fumble of the game.
Jake Elliiott then punished the Vikings with a late 61 yard field goal just a coupe plays after the fumble to stretch the lead to 13-7.
This is when you had to know it just wasn't the Vikings night. Justin Jefferson looked like he made the catch at the one yard line, but lost control of the ball and it went out of bounds in the endzone leading to a touchback with under a minute to go in the first half.
The Eagles went back to basics, running the ball 13 times on this possession, and ending with a QB sneak from Jalen Hurts.
Despite their inability to hold on to the ball the Vikings got into the endzone first with this 5 yard pass to Hockinson, his first of two on the night.
The Eagles forced two first quarter fumbles but couldn't do anything on the offense end after forcing those turnovers.
IT'S ALL OVER!!!
The Eagles move to 2-0 as the Vikings drop to 0-2 after fumbling the ball four times.
Cousins threw it as far as he can to a pile of bodies at the 20 yard line, but the pass is batted away and this game is all over!
Wilson is tackled at the 17 after a 2 yard return and the Vikings will have 7 seconds to go 83 yards.
The Eagles run the ball a couple times and make the Vikings take their timeouts, and they should get the ball back after stopping the Eagles on third down.
PHI will punt with 15 seconds on the clock.
The onside kick is recovered by the Eagles and that should do it. MIN have only two timeouts and that won't be enough to get the ball back.

Vikes D looking up
Minnesota might have went 13-4 last season, but it wasn’t thanks to their defense. Last season they finished 31st in yards per game allowed, giving up 388 yards a game, and 30th in ppg allowed at 25.1. Last week against the Bucs, Brian Flores’ new look defense gave up just 242 yards and 20 points in Tampa Bay. The offense isn’t likely to struggle holding on to the ball like they did in Week 1, and the normally sure handed Kirk Cousins isn’t likely to give up the ball three times every week. If the defense can hold strong like they did in the opener, the Vikes are going to be a force in the NFC.
Philly's run game takes a hit
The Eagles lost their top running back from last year, Miles Sanders and in Week 1 Kenneth Gainwell was sent to the tent after taking a shot to the ribs in the game against the Patriots. That means it will be up to D’Andre Swift and Boston Scott to carry the load tonight in Minnesota. Swift was the back up in Detroit last year and Scott got just 54 carries with the Eagles in 2022. They are thin at this position, and depending on how long Gainwell is going to be out they might have to look in to bringing someone in for to provide a little more depth in the backfield. Tonight is an open audition for both Swift and Scott if they are looking to get more of a work load this season.
O line struggles
There is trouble up front for Minnesota already. After Week 1, their center Garrett Bradbury is out with a back injury and their left tackle Christian Derrisaw was listed as questionable but will play after suffering an ankle injury in Week 1. Kirk Cousins fumbled twice on Sunday afternoon, one of those coming on a strip sack, and with the Vikings offense line vulnerable, the Eagles will be teeing up for a chance at the Minnesota QB.
Kirk trying to bounce back
The Vikings were the most doubted team in the league last year despite finishing the season 13-4. It’s true that they didn’t have the toughest schedule in the league, and a lot of those victories were won by seven points or less, but they still won those games. In the end the nay sayers were vindicated when they lost their first round playoff game to the New York Giants. This year they have the weapons on the offensive end, but their defense is going to be what makes or breaks them. In Week 1 the defense actually outplayed the offense and if they can play at that level every week then the Vikings will have a chance to get back to the playoffs and make a deeper run into the playoffs.
Eagles back in their nest
Philly are the kings of the NFC coming into this season, which means they have the target on their back. Last year, the Eagles flew under the radar for much of the season despite starting the season 8-0. Now the rest of the league know what to expect, and with a revamped defense Philly might even be stronger than they were before although they are going through a change at the offensive and defensive coordinator position. Both sides of the ball still have some improving to do after their narrow Week 1 win.
Vikings last week
It seems hard to believe that Kirk Cousins passed for 344 yards and two touchdowns, and Justin Jefferson had 150 yards receiving and the Bucs lost, putting up only 17 points. Kirk Cousin’s red zone interception right before the halftime break seemed to deflate the Vikes but they did come back out in the third quarter and score an opening drive TD in the second half thanks to an Alexander Mattison five yard TD that tied up the game at 17, but it was the Bucs who had the last laugh when Chase McLaughlin hit a 57 yard FG with five minutes to go to take the lead and keep the lead.
Eagles last week
The first quarter couldn’t have been any better for the Eagles last week in New England. After two offensive possessions they were up 16-0 thanks to an opening drive field goal, and Darius Slay Jr. pick six, and fumble and a DeVonte Smith 5 yard TD catch. After that the offense flat lined and the defense gave up a quick two TDs in the second half to let the Pats back in the game. Three field goal in the second half stretch the lead out to nine, but New England scored a touchdown with 3:37 to go in the game to cut the lead down to 5, and then had a chance to win it on the final drive of the game, but Kayshon Boutte couldn’t get his second foot down on a fourth down pass and the Eagles survived a scare in Foxborough.
We are live from The City of Brotherly Love
Hello everyone and welcome to Philly where the Vikings hit the road looking to erase the taste of an ugly opening week loss against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Philadelphia Eagles looked far from their NFC Champion selves in the final three quarters from Foxborough last week, but they snuck out of New England with a win. Tonight both teams are going to try to bounce back from sub par Week 1 games. The Eagles will either walk out of tonight still undefeated or the Vikings will get back on track with their first win of the season.
