Fresh from their impressive season-opening win over PackersCousins ​​and his teammates were unable to replicate that performance against the Eagles, who also won the season opener after escaping Detroit with a three-point win. After throwing 277 yards and two interceptions against the Packers, the Cousins ​​threw for only 221 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions against the Eagles’ defense. His third interception, which was Darius Sly’s second interception of the night, occurred in the end zone after Jordan Hicks gave the Vikings a short range after capturing Galen Hurts midway through the fourth quarter.

Besides the shots, the Vikings saw five more drives ending in Ryan Wright’s kicks, as Minnesota didn’t find their rhythm offensively so. With Vikings passes neutralized, the Eagles Pro’s defense swept past the Powell trailing back Dalvin Cook, who was held at just 17 yards on six moves. In fact, Cousins ​​finished the rushing Vikings turn with 20 yards off the ground.

The Vikings haven’t had more Monday night games this season. As of now, Minnesota’s only remaining night game will be on home soil against patriots On Thanksgiving.

Monday night’s loss prevented the Vikings from capturing their lone number one spot in the NFC North after two games. As it currently stands, each of the division’s four teams enters 1-1 in the third week of the regular season.
