Vikings vs Eagles… Good morning Horners! What a game! Way to start your victory week with the sound win over the Philadelphia Eagles. 38-10 was the final score where the Vikings jumped out aggressively early and even though the Eagles fought back, the Vikes snatched all the momentum back with a stiff 82 yard drive and score. That’s what we love to see as fans and at Good Morning Gjallarhorn.
Kirk Cousins was on FIRE! 22 of 29 for 333 yards and 4 TDs. He had one interception that was not his fault, but is playing like we hoped he would. Is he possessed by aliens? The truth is out there, but we don’t care. Just keep this up, and as Ted Glover says, “we have a really good football team.” Stefon Diggs had a day too, by catching 3 of those touchdowns and amassing 167 yards. Against the Eagles’ interior 7 led by Fletcher Cox that was #1 against the run, Alexander Mattison, Dalvin Cook and even Stefon Diggs amassed 122 yards. The passing and run games were for the second week complimentary of each other and Stefanski called a good game. How refreshing is that?
The Vikings defense had its moments too, holding Carson Wentz and crew to just 20 points. Eric Kendricks seemed to be everywhere and is continuing his outstanding season. Danielle Hunter now owns the NFL record for most sacks before turning 25, and even though Wentz was slippery, he was pressured all day. If all this keeps up, we as fans have a lot to look forward to. Next, the Vikes take on the Detroit Lions in Ford Field and keep the victory Mondays going.
