Key Plays Between the Eagles and Vikings

Eagles enter fourth quarter

The 2023 NFL season began last Thursday with the Detroit Lions and Kansas City Chiefs, but tonight’s game between the Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles kicks off the league’s broadcast schedule on Amazon Prime Video. The matchup looks interesting because it features the reigning NFC champion taking on a playoff squad from the previous season. The Eagles are working to fix their offense after Jalen Hurts and company managed just 251 yards in a victory over the New England Patriots, the team’s lowest total since 2021, while Kirk Cousins and Justin Jefferson are trying to help the Vikings recapture the magic that resulted in their breakout season in 2022.

Eagles 27, Vikings 21, and K.J. Osborn is wide open for Kirk Cousins to reduce the difference.

Midway through the fourth quarter, the Vikings scored a touchdown on a nine-play, 86-yard drive to raise the score to 27-21. Although Justin Jefferson had three catches throughout the drive, Kirk Cousins found K.J. Osborn in the end zone when he was wide open to score the game’s only touchdown.

Eagles vs. Vikings

Olisaemeka Udoh of the Vikings was carried off the field.

Olisaemeka After getting hurt on a crucial Vikings third-down convert, Udoh needed help from the cart to leave the field. Udoh was caught in a bull rush as he fell awkwardly to the ground.

He was filling in for starting left tackle Christian Darrisaw when David Quessenberry, a player in his sixth season and a former Buffalo Bill, took Udoh’s place.

Fourth quarter begins with Eagles in (ground) command.

The Eagles retreated the ball into Vikings territory over the last 5:19 of the third quarter. 
With Kenny Gainwell out due to injury, D’Andre Swift has been the Eagles’ starting running back. He has 107 rushing yards on 18 carries and is making his homecoming debut in Philadelphia. 
Hurts has passed for 173 yards, all but 50 of which have gone to Smith.
A.J. Brown and Hurts were seen on Prime Video cameras arguing, and head coach Nick Sirianni was also present. Brown had three catches for 17 yards going into the fourth quarter. On the first play of the fourth quarter, a short pass to Brown was incomplete. Four plays later, Brown momentarily caught a 25-yard touchdown pass, but a holding penalty caused the play to be called back. Christopher Bumbaca

Eagles lead the Vikings 14 to 27, but Jordan Addison brings them back.

The Vikings and Kirk Cousins turned to the rookie to make a play when they were at their worst. They received a prize.

In a third-and-5 situation, a 20-point deficit, and no time left, Cousins threw a pass to Jordan Addison, the 23rd pick overall in the 2023 draft, downfield.

DeVonta Smith’s big touchdown from the previous series was appropriately answered by Addison, who snuck past the defense and strutted into the end zone. The Vikings were still behind 27-14. — C. Bumbaca
