It can be as simple as not taking an 8-yard sack on first-and-10 from the Vikings' 15-yard line, as he did in the third quarter, on a drive that ended in a field goal when the Eagles could have used a touchdown. For now, we can't worry about the Rams or Saints or any other team. Stephen Weatherly knocked the ball loose and Wentz couldn't recover to catch Joseph from behind after the strip-sack.

Philly QB Carson Wentz numbers may have looked good in the end (due in large part to 75 yards and a touchdown against a "Prevent" Viking zone defense in the game's last two minutes), but the young QB took three sacks on the game and numerous hits and hurries from a defense without standout defensive end Everson Griffen.

It was a golden opportunity for the Eagles offense to get back in the game and possibly take the lead. I wouldn't say we are an undisciplined group. One of the infractions was an intentional grounding call that put the Eagles in a third-and-20 at the 40. It starts with me.

"I thought he made some unbelievable throws", Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said.

Eric Kendricks forced Jay Ajayi to fumble at the Vikings 5 on the first drive of the third quarter. The Vikings were ranked first in the National Football League both scoring defense and total defense all of last season before falling apart in that game. The offensive line - particularly tackles Jason Peters and Lane Johnson - has underperformed. "I have to self-examine", Pederson said. "A lot of times he probably can't even see us, but he trusts us as receivers to get open because that's our job". "It starts with me and goes right down the line".

"It was the No. 1 run defense in the league and so we knew it wasn't going to be easy to just come in here and run the football", quarterback Kirk Cousins said.

The Eagles were flagged three times for illegal formation.

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

"We're just exhausted of hearing it every game", Wendell Smallwood said of the mistakes. We're putting ourselves in bad situations and having to fight harder than we need to.

The Vikings recaptured the spirit of what makes this team so good; why they haven't been counted out in the NFC picture despite going through a host of ups and downs during the most hard stretch on their schedule.
