Even with a very convincing win over the Philadelphia Eagles, the Minnesota Vikings weren’t perfect. What are three things they can improve for Week 7?

Last week, the Minnesota Vikings got a big win over the Philadelphia Eagles. The Vikings’ passing attack and Kirk Cousins was on fire, taking advantage of a depleted Eagles secondary. Minnesota’s ground game found it harder to get yardage, but they eventually toughed out over 100 yards.

The Vikings’ defense was once again superb. They were able to put a lot of pressure on Philadelphia quarterback Carson Wentz and shut down the Eagles’ rushing attack.

Minnesota’s secondary was tight in coverage, intercepting Wentz once, and they had quite a few tipped passes that were nearly picked off. Even the Vikings special teams were solid last week as Dan Bailey hit all of his field goal and extra-point attempts.

This was a total and complete team win for Minnesota and one that they should feel very proud of as they took care of a tough opponent at home.

As good as that win was though, the Vikings can’t get complacent. They always have to strive for perfection and there are a few areas they can look to clean up as they head to Detroit for a big divisional game against the Lions on Sunday.
