LeGarrette Blount’s impressive up-the-middle 11-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter gave the Eagles the lead for good. Jay Ajayi had a good game, rushing for 73 yards on 18 carries. Corey Clement had 20 yards on his only two carries.
Nick Foles made mince meat of the league’s top defense. He completed 26 of 33 passes, averaged 10.5 yards per attempt and had three TDs and no interceptions. He was 10-for-11 for 159 yards on third down, with two third-down TD passes to Alshon Jeffery.
The Vikings rushed for 27 yards on six carries on their first possession, then the Eagles defense shut the door on them, holding them to 3.6 yards per carry the rest of the game.
The Eagles forced two big early turnovers out of quarterback Case Keenum. Patrick Robinson had a 50-yard interception return for a touchdown, and Derek Barnett’s strip sack killed a Vikings scoring opportunity. The Eagles limited the Vikings’ top two receivers, Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, to 8.9 yards per catch and no TDs.
Jake Elliott converted his only field goal attempt, a 38-yarder, and had six touchbacks on six kickoffs. Donnie Jones had a 43.3 net average, put all three of his punts inside the 20, and didn’t allow dangerous Marcus Sherels to return any of them.
The Eagles racked up 456 yards, 27 first downs and 38 points against the league’s top defense. They gave up an early touchdown and didn’t flinch. They forced three turnovers out of a team that had 14 giveaways all season. Nick Foles completed 10 of 11 third-down passes against the league’s best third-down defense.
