Deja Vu: Vikings to open 2018-19 season in Philly

19 March, 2018, 20:42 | Author: Heidi Alvarez

"The Vikings will visit Philadelphia to take on the Eagles in the annual Thursday night opener in the Super Bowl champion's host stadium, according to longtime Philadelphia media member Howard Eskin".

The Vikings will come in with a brand new starting quarterback, but one who is very familiar with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The NFL season may begin with a chance at revenge for the Minnesota Vikings.

The players seemed to understand they would be remembered and honored for Friday's game and had acquitted themselves well Sunday. The Retrievers shot 67.9 percent from the field in the second half and held Virginia to 42 percent after intermission.


The Vikings will have quarterback Kirk Cousins, who spent his first six seasons of his National Football League career with the Eagles' NFC East rival Washington Redskins and signed a three-year $84 million deal with Minnesota.

If correct, the game would be a re-match of the NFC Championship game, in which the Vikings suffered a 38-7 loss at Lincoln Financial Field. If they hope to get back to the NFC Championship - and beyond - with new QB Kirk Cousins leading the charge, they'll have to go through a daunting schedule to get it done.

Cousins will not be unfamiliar to the Eagles, with the six starts he made against them over the last three seasons for the division-rival Redskins as a reference. Minnesota has won just once in Philadelphia since 1986 and the road team in the kickoff game has an all-time record of 3-13 since 2002.
