The Minnesota Vikings will host the Philadelphia Eagles in a big NFC matchup in Week 6, but what could happen when the two teams clash on Sunday?
The Minnesota Vikings come into Sunday’s meeting with the Philadelphia Eagles looking to establish the type of momentum they never did in 2018. As the Vikings currently stand at 3-2, they look to separate from a large group of teams in the middle of the NFC standings and get the upper hand as they look to make a return to the playoffs.
Standing in their way in Week 6 are the Eagles, who have shown two different sides to their game this season. With wins over Washington, Green Bay, and the New York Jets, the Eagles came off as an aggressive, swarming team that looks like it can make another run to be a contender in the NFC. In their losses to Atlanta and Detroit, they looked like a team with flaws that could put those plans on ice.
As the Eagles return to the scene of their Super Bowl victory two years ago, they’ll likely find U.S. Bank Stadium much more intimidating this time around. The Vikings will be looking to continue their good vibes from last week’s win over the New York Giants and in two previous games, they’ve been able to jump out to huge leads before coasting to victory.
With a matchup like this, it’s always fun to look and see what could happen when the two teams step between the lines, so who could come away with a much-needed victory on Sunday?
