As they prepare for their Week 6 matchup, who are three Philadelphia Eagles players that could really help out the Minnesota Vikings this season?
It’s hard to believe, but Week 6 of the NFL season is already here. On Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings will be taking on a pretty good, but dinged up, Philadelphia Eagles team. Both of these teams currently sit at 3-2 and are right in the thick of things in their respective divisions.
The Vikings have had some issues on their team this season. Minnesota’s rebuilt offensive line has been a mixed bag so far. They have been good in the running game, but they have struggled in pass protection against some of the better defensive lines in the NFL.
Minnesota has also been bitten by the injury bug in their secondary and they have had to force some very inexperienced young corners into the lineup.
Another issue the Vikings have faced this year is erratic play from their well-compensated starting quarterback. Minnesota also has a kicker who has been solid as of late, but he has still given the team and their fans ulcers every time he lines up to attempt a field goal.
The Eagles are just a few years removed from a Super Bowl championship and they have lots of talent on their current roster. A lot of these talented players could help the Vikings out this season. Here are three of those pesky Philadelphia players who could make Minnesota a much more formidable team this year.
