The Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles have developed an intense National Football League rivalry in the space of just 10 months, as ESPN recounts, dating back to last season’s NFC Championship Game when the Eagles ran off 38 unanswered points after falling behind 7-0, to trounce Minnesota and gain a berth in Super Bowl 52 — which they won. But on Sunday, the rivalry will heat up once again as the two NFC teams square off the featured game of the Week Five, and one that will live stream from Philly.
But more important than the bad blood between the teams is the fact that both entered the 2018 season as co-favorites, along with the Los Angeles Rams, to reach the Super Bowl from the NFC, according to CBS Sports. But while the Rams have opened the season at 4-0, both the Vikings and Eagles have struggled. Minnesota comes into the Sunday game at 1-2-1, while the Eagles stand at 2-2.
Both teams are coming off Week 4 losses, as Minnesota fell to the Rams, per Pro Football Reference, and the Eagles dropped a close 26-23 decision to the Tennessee Titans.
In his second start back from injury, Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz put up impressive numbers against the Titans, completing 33 of 55 pass attempts, per SI.com, for 348 yards and a pair of touchdowns, but it still wasn’t enough.
