Carson Wentz, Eagles fall short to Vikings in NFC title game rematch

Carson Wentz, Eagles fall short to Vikings in NFC title game rematch

Cook, listed as questionable for Sunday's game, declined comment afterward. This was the drive after the Eagles scored their first touchdown of the game.

Thielen, who went for 116 yards on 7 catches and a touchdown against the Eagles, is the first player in the Super Bowl era to have more than 100 yards in the first five games of the season.

To make this situation even more hard to deal with, Ajayi is in the middle of the final year of his contract, meaning the Eagles could be in a hard position this offseason when it comes to determining whether it's worth bringing him back for another year.

The offense didn't grade well coming off the Eagles' ugly 23-21 loss to the Vikings on Sunday, as expected - but one person in particular received a failing mark after the latest defeat. But for the third straight game since his return, he lost a fumble, this one returned for a touchdown by the Vikings in the second quarter. Yesterday the Eagles ran for just 81 yards. They were 2 for 9 on third down.

Cousins threw for 301 yards and one touchdown, and completed 30 of 37 passes to become the first player in National Football League history with at least 30 completions in four consecutive games. After 30 minutes of football, the Vikings lead 17-3, thanks to a fumble recovered for a touchdown.

India vs West Indies
In search of second wicketkeeper, we have given opportunities to DK and right now we are giving an opportunity to Rishabh Pant. Another surprise was the exclusion of both Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar who featured for India in the Asia Cup.


The Vikings were on a two-game losing streak, and may have saved their season with a win, which improved their record to 2-2-1. Bennett stayed in the tunnel during the anthem the first month of the season but already ran onto the field during pregame introductions. Two point conversions are made at a roughly 50 percent rate. Unlike the previous week, when the made Marcus Mariota look good, Cousins might have played his best game ever, considering the heat he was under. Instead, they punted and then the defense gave up a drive that ended in a 52-yard field goal to put the game out of reach.

Left tackle Jason Peters' false start with 3:26 left in the half. Stephen Weatherly knocked the ball loose and Wentz couldn't recover to catch Joseph from behind after the strip-sack. Roughing the passer. Bennett was called for going low on a tackle that dragged Cousins down by his legs.

Mills getting torched by Adam Thielen for a 68-yard reception on the Vikings' first play of the second half. Ajayi had eight of those carries for 29 yards.

Isaac Seumalo was not the answer to the Eagles' protection issues, to nobody's surprise.
