5 most disappointing Vikings in the loss to the Eagles in Week 2
By Nik Edlund
The Minnesota Vikings got their butt kicked by the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2. Who were the most disappointing members of the team in the humiliating loss?
After an impressive beat down of the Green Bay Packers, the Minnesota Vikings were dominated on the road against the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday. The Vikings looked unprepared on both sides of the ball, and the entire team looked flat and disinterested.
Defensively, Minnesota’s corners were giving huge cushions to the Eagles receivers which lead to easy completions for quarterback Jalen Hurts. The Vikings rarely blitzed, if at all, and they allowed Philadelphia to basically do whatever they wanted as they marched to more than 300 yards of total offense in the first half alone.
Offensively, things weren’t much better for Minnesota. Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins was forcing the ball to receivers who weren’t open, and the team only ran the football 11 times for 62 yards.
The performance we saw on Monday night was a far cry from what we saw from Minnesota a week ago against the Packers. Who the 2022 Vikings are, remains a mystery at this point.
What isn’t a mystery is the members of Minnesota’s roster and coaching staff that didn’t perform well in Philadelphia. Here are the five that were the most disappointing of all.
