The Vikings blew out a close game with four scores and 20 points in the final period to defeat the Eagles by 17 points. This was an interesting game in that the Vikings fumbled four kick returns, losing three of them! The worst offender was Chad Beebe, who fumbled 3 punt returns, all of them while attempting fair catches.
But, despite turning the ball over four times to Philadelphia, Minnesota got solid performances out of Kirk Cousins (21-27 for 228 yards), Dalvin Cook (15 carries for 89 yards) and, especially, Stephon Diggs, who caught 7 passes for 96 yards and 2 touchdowns.
On the other side of the ball, Eagles’ quarterback, Carson Wentz, got sacked 7 times in the game and really never saw Philly’s offense come alive.
