ESPN will host this week’s Monday Night Football matchup between the Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles with kickoff set for 8:15 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
The Eagles are coming off a close win over the Detroit Lions in Week 1. Up 38-21 heading into the fourth quarter, the Eagles nearly blew a two-touchdown lead in a 38-35 win over Detroit. Philly has big issues on the defensive side of the ball, something that could come to light matching up vs. Justin Jefferson. The offense should be fine. A.J. Brown caught 10 passes for 155 yards in his Philly debut. The run game combined for over 200 yards on just under 40 carries.
The Vikings pulled off a convincing win over the rival Green Bay Packers in Week 1. Minnesota has Jefferson to thank for that. He put up nine catches for 184 yards and two TDs, accounting for more than half of the offense. That will be key for a win over the Eagles. Kirk Cousins wasn’t tested much so we’ll see how things go if the Eagles can get pressure on the QB. Overall, the Vikings defense performed well and looks promising under new head coach Kevin O’Connell.
