Joseph's long TD return lifts Vikings past Eagles 23-21

Eagles-Vikings Pre-game stats that matter | Paul Domowitch

They are squandering opportunities to score touchdowns that would give them a lead or win them a game outright. This was the drive after the Eagles scored their first touchdown of the game.

Sunday against the Vikings, the Eagles ran just 19 offensive plays in the first half for 91 total yards.

Doug Pederson could be second-guessed for many things - third-down calls, a baffling replay challenge, going for two when one makes a seven-point game.

After acquiring the running back from the Miami Dolphins in the middle of last season, Ajayi ended up being a key piece on offense for Philadelphia during their epic Super Bowl run, and was arguably the top player in the backfield on the current roster. They are 2-3, and they are 2-3 on merit. And though Wentz put up sparkling numbers against the Vikings - 24-for-35, 311 yards, two touchdowns, no interceptions - he had not been the same quarterback he was last season, not yet. This time, however, the ball landed in the hands of defensive tackle Linval Joseph for a 63-yard fumble return touchdown. They bounced back against the Super Bowl Champion Eagles this week beating them 23-21, with a lot of help from star wide receiver Adam Thielen.

Ertz's non-garbage time line: 6 receptions, 58 yards, no TD. Two point conversions are made at a roughly 50 percent rate.

Linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill losing Vikings' tight end Kyle Rudolph for a 17-yard gain on a third-and-one with 5:09 left. They would have completely closed the gap with a touchdown on that drive. Stephen Weatherly knocked the ball loose and Wentz couldn't recover to catch Joseph from behind after the strip-sack. In the game he had six tackles, a solid quarterback hit on Carson Wentz, and made his place on the field one of the Vikings' defensive strengths.

Michael Bennett got called for a personal foul for THIS!

Without Cook, the Vikings rushed for 77 yards on 23 attempts.

It's doubtful for the Pixel 3 to repeat that kind of performance, especially given that Google didn't say anything about DxOMark . When configured, the Hub knows which room you're in and provides information on temperature and lighting as well.

The Vikings' defense stood tall again after Bradham recovered a Roc Thomas fumble and set the Eagles up at the Minnesota 30-yard line trailing 20-14 with 10:03 to play in the fourth quarter.

Isaac Seumalo was not the answer to the Eagles' protection issues, to nobody's surprise.

Smallwood missing a pass from Wentz on third-and-three at the Minnesota 12 with 12:27 left in the half.
