Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni said this week that the team wanted to involve running back D’Andre Swift more in the offense than he did in the opener, and the team accomplished that mission Thursday night.

Swift had two touches in the Week One win over the Patriots, but took on a much larger role with Kenneth Gainwell out of the lineup against the Vikings. The Philadelphia native rushed 28 times for 175 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles’ 34-28 victory and said after the game that he didn’t let himself be frustrated by his limited role in the opener.

“Was I got frustrated?” Swift said, via Mike Jones of TheAthletic.com. “No. We achieved victory. I I wouldn’t say frustrated. . . . I prepared myself just to be ready when he called my number. “I know what I’m capable of.”

Quarterback Jalen Hurts called it “a great job and we needed it from him,” while head coach Nick Sirianni praised Swift’s vision and explosiveness in what was the team’s 10th 200-yard rushing game since that Sirianni was hired. The performance illustrated why the Eagles acquired Swift in a trade and why he is unlikely to be on the sidelines of the offense in the coming weeks.
