On the other two drives, one resulted in a Jake Elliott 30-yard field goal, thanks to a 48-yard reception by Shelton Gibson, and on the other end when Linval Joseph took a fumble 64 yards for a touchdown and a 10-3 lead with 4:12 left in the first half.

To seal the victory, the Vikings relied on the play of their special teams, which has gone through its own set of growing pains this season after releasing rookie kicker Daniel Carlson following the Green Bay game. Stephen Weatherly knocked the ball loose and Wentz couldn't recover to catch Joseph from behind after the strip-sack.

"I think Coach Flip is giving Stef and Adam the opportunity to make those plays", Cousins said. "This is definitely not where we want to be". I wouldn't say we are an undisciplined group.

"It feels good", said Latavius Murray, who replaced Cook. But an illegal formation penalty negated the play.

According to ESPN's NFL Matchup, opposing quarterbacks are getting the ball out quickly against the Eagles, the secondary isn't covering and the numbers reflect it. "There's no excuse for it".

Vikings DE Danielle Hunter over Eagles QB Carson Wentz during last Sunday's game.

Against the Titans last Sunday, Wentz was under enormous heat and turned the football over in the fourth quarter, thanks to a missed assignment by right tackle Lane Johnson. "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". I wasn't trying to go for anything special, just trying to wrap him up and get him to the ground the proper way so I wouldn't get a flag. Thielen has 49 catches this season for 599 yards, the most ever for a Minnesota player after five games.

"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. They are 2-3, and they are 2-3 on merit. We just need to have a complete game. "Obviously, we kind of have some ebbs and flows as an offense - slow start, seemed like we got some momentum, hurt ourselves again". On Thursday night, the team heads north to East Rutherford, New Jersey for a Thursday night encounter with their NFC East rival, the 1-4 New York Giants.
