Eagles-Vikings report card

Here is Domo's report card for last night's game. You can give your grades by clicking here.

RUSHING OFFENSE

The Vikings effectively neutralized LeSean McCoy most of the game, holding him to 33 yards on 10 carries in the first 3 quarters. Eagles’ only significant rushing yardage came on Mike Vick scrambles. Grade: D

PASSING OFFENSE

Mike Vick had his poorest game of the season, turning the ball over 3 times and averaging less than 6 yards per attempt. The offensive line seemed incapable of protecting him. Grade: F

RUN DEFENSE

For just the second time since Week 4, the Eagles gave up 120-plus rushing yards. Adrian Peterson averaged 5.7 yards per carry in the first 3 quarters. Quarterback Joe Webb rushed for 26 yards, including 9 on a touchdown run. Grade: C-minus

PASS DEFENSE

The Eagles failed to register an interception for just the second time this season and allowed rookie Joe Webb to average 7.5 yards per attempt. Cornerback Dimitri Patterson had a second straight poor game. Grade: D

SPECIAL TEAMS

Eagles return game was a non-factor. Special teams had a couple of penalties. Highlight of David Akers’ night was a touchback on a kickoff. He came up well short on a 54-yard field goal attempt. Grade: B

OVERALL

The Eagles’ lethal offense was held in check by the Vikings. Birds had everything to play for and the Vikings had nothing to play for except Leslie Frazier’s job. Yet the Eagles came out flat and played that way the entire game. Grade: F
