Cousins, defense lead Vikings over Eagles 23-21

Super Bowl hangover is real just look at the Eagles

Now I know in week six it's still early to be talking about must-win games but for the Eagles, this is a must win. Seumalo got first crack at the job and looked bad on the Eagles' first drive, getting pushed back into Wentz's lap on all three pass attempts.

The Eagles have a total of 12 sacks in their first five games, which is tied for 16th in the NFL.

Most importantly, the Minnesota Vikings won, and all the beleaguered members of this team-most notably Anthony Barr-were a big part of that win.

Losing to the Minnesota Vikings at home on Sunday 23-21 has been frustrating for the Philadelphia Eagles and their fans to accept over the last day or so, mainly because it just sums up the struggles that have taken place throughout the 2018 season so far. The Vikings' third-year defensive end rushed off the left edge before he sacked Wentz while forcing the ball loose.

When the game ended, Eagles running backs had only ran the ball 12 times for 55 yards gained. They were 2 for 9 on third down. They lost because they had the Vikings hand them possession at the Minnesota 30-yard line with 10 minutes left in regulation, on a Kirk Cousins lateral that resulted in a fumble, and the Eagles not only did not score, but they went backward 15 yards. Vikings backs also averaged a pedestrian 3.2 yards per carry. His last touch was a 6-yard grab early in the fourth quarter that was called back by penalty, but he appeared normal after the play. Smallwood later stretched out for a 2-point conversion to make it 20-14. Unlike the previous week, when the made Marcus Mariota look good, Cousins might have played his best game ever, considering the heat he was under.

Wentz got crushed by edge rusher Stephen Weatherly and the ball popped up in the air, conveniently enough for Joseph, who snatched it up and ran an impressive 69 yards to the house to give the Vikes a 10-3 lead.

Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett was called for a roughing penalty to negate his sack on Cousins.

There are two issues with the call against Bennett.

He had eight carries for 29 yards and a fumble on Sunday and has 184 rushing yards for the season.
