We were that young team making these mistakes. 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.

"With the offensive line we have on this team, running the ball like that, that doesn't make sense to me", he said.

"Obviously, it is not where we want to be", said Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham, who made seven tackles and recovered a fumble. The 2-3 Eagles meet the 1-4 Giants who lost Sunday on a 63-yard Field Goal by the Graham Gano of the Carolina Panthers. Quarterback Carson Wentz, who led the National Football League in third-down passing past year, completed just three of seven third-down passes for 40 yards and one sack. These little mistakes that sometimes can be overlooked are just killing us. It was the same thing that echoed after last week's game. "But I think you see what happens when we run the ball. We have to be really hard on ourselves and learn from these mistakes and turn it around fast". Optimism about the future has switched to the expectation of immediate success. He was acquired by the Eagles from Miami at the trade deadline last season and helped the team win the Super Bowl.

It may have not looked as much, but the Minnesota Vikings defense bullied the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. The first came midway through the second quarter. Two of those misses came in overtime, and a fed-up coach Mike Zimmer released him the next day and replaced him with Bailey.

Coach Doug Pederson agreed with Ajayi on Monday but said the decision came down to the situation.

Fabinho insists he is adapting well at Liverpool
He's been at Chelsea for a long time now, he's achieved so much but I can't speak for Eden, he knows in his mind what he wants. After being a part of success like that and seeing what we've done recently, I feel we're going in the right direction.

With 4:24 to play in the second quarter, Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz dropped back to pass with a fresh set of downs and was charged in the backfield by Stephen Weatherly.

"We're self-inflicted. We're shooting ourselves with penalties and turnovers that are hurting our offense", Pederson said.

The Vikings got the ball right back and, with an assist from a roughing the passer call by referee Walt Coleman when Michael Bennett went low on Cousins, drove 56 yards in eight plays, with Thielen's 3-yard touchdown ending it. After the Eagles recovered a Vikings fumble at the Minnesota 30 with 10:03 left, it looked like Philadelphia had all the momentum. He rushed for 1,924 yards and nine touchdowns in 31 games with Miami before he was traded to the Eagles In October 2017.

The Vikings took just six plays to move from their own five to the Eagles four-yard line to add an additional three points on a 22-yard field goal by kicker Dan Bailey. "It's frustrating. If I wasn't a Christian, I'd probably be losing my mind". "I know it sounds cliché, but it's true".

In fact, Ajayi spoke to reporters afterward, which wouldn't have been allowed if he'd had a major injury, and said the Eagles didn't run the ball enough.
