Keep Bradford upright and run the ball
There is no debate that the Philadelphia Eagles have some big boys on their defensive line. Fletcher Cox is an absolute monster and guys like Bennie Cunningham and Connor Barwin can do some real damage if they can take advantage of a situation.
And the situation in Minnesota isn’t a good one. They’ve lost many offensive linemen so far this season and have backups starting at both tackle positions. Jeremiah Sirles is doing a good job so far at right tackle, but T.J. Clemmings is still adjusting to the challenge of protecting Sam Bradford’s blind side.
This should be a major thing to watch during week 7 of the NFL season. While the Eagles have struggled against the run, they do have an excellent pass rush. If the Vikings can establish that run and Bradford can use his excellent play action skills, this could quickly turn from a negative into a huge positive.
