By the numbers

* Reggie Brown's 30-yard reception on third-and-12 in the second quarter marked the first time this season the Eagles converted on third-and-10 or more. They had been 0-for-19. They also converted a third-and-11 later in the game on a 12-yard catch-and-run by Correll Buckhalter.

* The Eagles haven't allowed more than 21 points in any of their first seven games. The last time they were able to do that was 2001, when they went 18 games before allowing more than 21 in their 29-24 NFC Championship Game loss to the Rams.

* Eagles wide receivers have 77 receptions this season. Through seven games last season, they had 61.

* The Eagles have converted 22 of 43 third-down opportunities in their last three games, a 51.2 percent success rate.

* The Eagles continue to get little pass-catching production from their tight ends. They have 18 catches for 156 yards and one TD in seven games. Last year at this point, they had 35-520-2.

* Brian Westbrook, who was held to 46 yards on 21 carries by the Vikings, has just three 10-yard-plus runs in the last three games.

* With three field goals in four attempts yesterday, David Akers is 33-for-37 in his career against NFC North teams.

* Correll Buckhalter has just nine carries in the last three games. He had just two against the Vikings, but had four receptions.

* For the second straight game, the Eagles failed to force a turnover. They have just eight takeaways this season. They had 13 after seven games last year.

* The Eagles converted just two of five red-zone opportunies into touchdowns. In the last four games, they've converted just three of 14. Take out the Detroit game and they are 4-for-20 for the season inside the red zone.

* The Eagles didn't have any turnovers against the Vikings. They have just three giveaways in the last six games and have an NFC-best seven for the season.

* With 26 rushing attempts against the Vikings, the Eagles have 185 in 453 offensive plays this season, which means they've run the ball on 40.8 percent of their offensive plays.
