The Vikings’ Week 2 road matchup with the Eagles on Monday Night Football was always going to be a big game, but the results of the NFL’s opening weekend raised the anticipation even further.
The Eagles, a trendy pick as an NFC contender, held on to beat the frisky Lions 38-35 in Detroit. Philadelphia rolled up over 450 yards of offense in the game, dominating on the ground and through the air. The score was 38-21 after three quarters, so although the Eagles have some things to clean up defensively, it wasn’t quite as close of a game as the final score suggests.
In the late window on Sunday, the Vikings put the league on notice with a 23-7 beatdown of the Green Bay Packers at home. Kevin O’Connell’s head coaching debut was a smashing success, with Justin Jefferson exploding for a career day that backed up everything he said this offseason about being this year’s Cooper Kupp.
Jefferson is out to stake his claim as the best wide receiver in football this year, and he’s off to a great start. He torched the Packers for 184 yards and two touchdowns, averaging nearly six yards per route run in one of the most efficient WR performances of the past decade.
Defensively, Ed Donatell’s unit held Aaron Rodgers and company to a single touchdown, sacked him four times, and forced two turnovers. It was a highly encouraging outing for the Vikings on that side of the ball as well.
There’s more animosity to this matchup than your typical cross-division series, mostly stemming from the 2017 NFC championship game. It’s going to be a hostile, rowdy environment at Lincoln Financial Field in Philly. For the millions watching at home, Joe Buck and Troy Aikman being on the call for ESPN will help add to the big-game feel.
