Vikings returner Brandon Powell returned an Arryn Siposs punt 19 yards to the Eagles 35 before Justin Evans forced a fumble that Nicholas Morrow recovered at the Eagles 27. That cost the Vikings a possession.

Alexander Mattison’s fumble on the first play of the team’s next drive was forced by Avonte Maddox and recovered by Evans at the Minnesota 39-yard line.

The Vikings’ last missed opportunity came just before the half when Kirk Cousins ​​hit Justin Jefferson for a 30-yard gain. When Jefferson reached the goal line, he fumbled. The officials ruled that the ball did not cross the pylon and spotted it at the 1-yard line with 34 seconds left in the half. A replay review overturned it, with the ball clearly coming out of the side of the end zone.

They gave the ball back to the Eagles, who drove 37 yards to set up Jake Elliott’s 61-yard field goal at the buzzer.

The Eagles have rushed him 26 times for 133 yards, including 13 runs on their 16-play, 75-yard touchdown drive. Jalen Hurts reached the end zone for the final yard on the Eagles’ signature drive play.

The Eagles have passed just 76 yards, 54 of them on a DeVonta Smith reception on the opening drive to set up an Elliott field goal.

The Vikings have run him just four times, with Mattison gaining 9 yards. They had only 22 plays and Cousins ​​went 13 of 17 for 140 yards. He threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to tight end TJ Hockenson.
