Minnesota Vikings 23 Cheap Anthony Barr Jersey , Philadelphia Eagles 21:It might not have been the Conference Championship Game, but you know. . .it still feels pretty nice.Kirk Cousins had another outstanding game, and the Vikings’ defense did just enough to knock off the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field by a final score of 23-21.After the teams exchanged field goals in the first quarter, the Vikings were the first team to find the end zone, and it came courtesy of the defense. Stephen Weatherly sliced through the Philadelphia line and hit Carson Wentz, who had the ball flutter out of his hands and into the waiting arms of defensive tackle Linval Joseph. Joseph did the rest, as he rumbled 64 yards for a touchdown, with Dan Bailey’s extra point putting the Vikings up by a score of 10-3.The Vikings’ offense got into the act at the end of the first half, as Kirk Cousins found Adam Thielen for a 3-yard touchdown pass just before the break. That made the score 17-3 in favor of the Vikings, and things were going well for the Vikings in the early going.Each team put up a field goal in the third quarter, and the Vikings took a 20-6 lead into the final quarter of play. The Eagles struck back in the early stages of the fourth quarter Cheap Adam Thielen Jersey , as Wentz found running back Wendell Smallwood for a 12-yard score, and then Smallwood converted a 2-point run to cut the deficit to 20-14 with 12 minutes remaining in the game.The Vikings then made a costly mistake, as an attempted screen pass from Cousins to Roc Thomas wound up being a backward pass that was fumbled by Thomas, with the Eagles recovering the loose ball. An intentional grounding penalty on Wentz helped to derail the Eagles’ drive, and the lead remained 20-14 with just over nine minutes remaining.Minnesota then put together a solid drive, and pushed into Philadelphia territory to set up a 52-yard field goal attempt for Bailey. Bailey, who had missed two field goals earlier in the game, split the uprights and gave the Vikings back a two-score lead at 23-14.The Eagles then answered with a big drive of their own, as the Vikings allowed a lot of cushion on defense and Philadelphia took advantage. Wentz hit Zach Ertz in the back left corner of the end zone, and with the extra point from Jake Elliott the score went to 23-21.There was a bit of a scare at the end of the game, as the Eagles attempted an onside kick and it appeared to bounce off of the hands of Adam Thielen , but he jumped back on it and, because the Eagles had no timeouts remaining, the Vikings were able to just kneel out the clock.Kirk Cousins had yet another brilliant performance for the Vikings, completing completing 30-of-37 passes for 301 yards and a touchdown. The Vikings’ receivers, as you’d expect, had big games as well, particularly Adam Thielen. Thielen hauled in seven catches for 116 yards and a score, and became the first receiver since the AFL/NFL merger to begin a season with five consecutive 100-yard performances. Stefon Diggs chipped in with ten catches for 91 yards.The Vikings even their season record at 2-2-1, and next week return to U.S. Bank Stadium to take on the Arizona Cardinals. The Eagles fall to 2-3 on the season, and will have a short week as they travel to take on the New York Giants on Thursday Night Football.The Minnesota Vikings even their record with a big victory over the Philadelphia Eagles by a final score of 23-21. We’ll have more on this game over the next day or two, and we appreciate all of you that got your coverage of this week’s game right here at The Daily Norseman!Minnesota Vikings work out two veteran defensive ends On Monday Cheap Mike Hughes Jersey , it was announced that the Minnesota Vikings had held workouts for two veteran defensive ends in what appears to be an effort to bolster the position in the continued absence of Everson Griffen.The team held workouts for veterans Lamarr Houston and Robert Ayers.Houston is probably the more familiar name to Vikings fans, as he most recently played with the Chicago Bears from 2014 to 2016. Prior to that, he had spent four seasons with the Oakland Raiders, and in 2017 split his time between the Houston Texans and a return to Chicago. In his last five games with the Bears in 2017, he did record four sacks.Houston’s most infamous moment came back in October of 2014, his first year with the Bears. In a game against the New England Patriots (that the Bears lost by 25 points), Houston sacked Patriots’ backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. . .and, in the ensuing celebration, managed to tear his ACL and miss the rest of the season.Ayers was the 18th overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos, but never really seemed to get things going in the Mile High City. After his time with the Broncos was over following the 2013 season, he spent two years with the New York Giants Cheap Dalvin Cook Jersey , followed by two seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He had signed with the Detroit Lions back in August, but was with the team for just one day before he was released for reasons I’m not completely sure of.With the Vikings working out defensive ends, it might surprise some people that Brian Robison wasn’t in Eagan for a workout. If I had to venture a guess, I’d say that probably has to do with the fact that Robison is a known quantity to the Vikings, and they know that if they want to bring him back they can do that. I’m not sure if either Houston or Ayers is better than Robison at this point, but it would appear that the Vikings are doing their due diligence and simply checking out who else might be available.As of now, it doesn’t sound like a signing of either Houston or Ayers is imminent. If that changes, we will pass that news along to you.
