After getting a big victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, what did we learn about the Minnesota Vikings and their chances moving forward?

Raise your hand if you predicted the Minnesota Vikings to storm off to a 24-3 lead over the Philadelphia Eagles in the first half of their matchup on Sunday. If your raising your hand, put it down because you’re lying.

Many believed that the Vikings were completely capable of defeating the Eagles this week. But the way Minnesota went about it was something that few saw coming.

Philadelphia has plenty of weaknesses, but they also have a lot of talent. The Eagles definitely had a chance to leave U.S. Bank Stadium with a victory over the Vikings on Sunday.

However, Philadelphia’s chance to win pretty much vanished after the opening kickoff.

For the second-straight week, the Vikings performed well on offense, defense, and special teams. Minnesota is going to be a very hard team to beat moving forward if they continue to play like they have during their last two games.

So with Sunday’s contest now in the books, what did we learn about the Vikings after they earned their fourth victory of the 2019 season?
