Vikings are capable of beating anyone
Few people took Minnesota’s impressive win in Week 5 seriously because it came against an underwhelming New York Giants Team. Fair enough, but the Vikings’ victory on Sunday should have turned a few heads.
Minnesota got a ton of big plays from their entire team against the Eagles and it resulted in their fourth win of the 2019 season. If the Vikings go out and continue to perform like they did on Sunday for the rest of the year, they will have a chance to beat any remaining opponent on their schedule.
On the offensive side of the ball, this week felt like the first time Minnesota was able to utilize all of their weapons in the best way possible. And while the defense certainly didn’t have their best game on Sunday, they still came up with a number of impactful plays that helped result in a Vikings victory.
Even Minnesota’s special teams did well against Philadelphia. Dan Bailey knocked down another field goal and the Vikings weren’t fooled by an Eagles fake field goal attempt at the end of the second quarter.
Minnesota showed what they are capable of on Sunday and their performance should remind everyone that they deserve to still be considered a contender this season.
