Grading the Eagles after the 23-21 loss to the Vikings

  • Eagles confident rookie DE Josh Sweat can make an impact filling in for Derek Barnett

Murray did what he could against the NFL's top rushing defense, carrying 11 times for 42 yards, and catching two passes for 14 yards.

After a slow start offensively in the first half when two straight drives to the red zone stalled on third-and-short and kicker Dan Bailey missed field goals from 28 and 45 yards out, the Vikings' pass-rush broke the game open.

Cook was hurt September 16 at Green Bay.

Recovering a fumble in midair was special, but rumbling 64 yards with it for a TD was true highlight-reel stuff.

But if we learned nothing else from the three games the Eagles have lost, we've learned that the defense's ability to keep coming to the rescue isn't going to continue forever.

"Personally, I feel fine", he said.

"We're just exhausted of beating ourselves and losing to teams we should beat", said running back Wendell Smallwood. Mike Hughes filled in for Waynes.

"We can't have that", Pederson said.

Cousins was fantastic in the face of pressure all game, completing 30-of-37 passes for 301 yards and a touchdown.

Early in the fourth quarter, with Minnesota leading 20-14, Cousins threw a backward pass to rookie running back Roc Thomas that went off his hands and was ruled a lateral. Also meh. Still a better day than Alshon Jeffery, who caught two of eight targets for 39 yards and failed to hang on to a key third-down pass - he got drilled, but the offense had to have it. Shelton Gibson, of all people, provided the Eagles' longest gain of the day with a 48-yard bomb.

"In a flawless world that would have been a forward pass", Cousins said.

"I have no idea what the other theory [for his benching] would be", Pederson said, "because everything in this business is performance-based". "I'm confident we'll fix it, but it's frustrating right now".

The Vikings never trailed again in the game, and in fact, played to the tune of a 20-3 lead well into the third quarter. Bennett stayed in the tunnel during the anthem the first month of the season but already ran onto the field during pregame introductions.

"I see guys that are battling their tails off and competing with one another to play".
