Gameday Live Blog: Vikings vs. Eagles, Week 6

Will Ragatz

It's go time. The Vikings are set to kick off against the Eagles in a massive NFC clash.

A win would go a long way. A loss would obviously not end the season, but it would make things a lot more difficult going forward.

Fourth Quarter

Final score: Vikings 38, Eagles 20

8:21 Dalvin Cook gets into the end zone for the touchdown to cap an 8-play, 88-yard drive. Big plays were by Irv Smith Jr. (29-yard catch) and Alexander Mattison (career-long 35-yard run).

13:42 The Vikings finally get their first sack of the game. Facing third and long, the crowd got the loudest it's been all day, and the blitz worked perfectly. Mackensie Alexander and Kendricks split the sack. Kendricks also has 2 passes defended and a TFL.

Third Quarter

Vikings 31, Eagles 20

1:22 Stefon Diggs with his third touchdown of the game. Taps his toes in the back of the end zone to complete a 9-play, 75-yard drive. Vikings needed that response. Diggs had 4 touches on that drive, and Johnson had a diving catch for 16 yards. Cousins is still locked in.

Vikings 24, Eagles 20

6:23 Elliott field goal cuts the lead to 4. Wentz threw a beautiful 26-yard pass to Jeffery to move the Eagles into field goal range.

9:53 The Vikings went backwards on that drive. Holding on Dakota Dozier and illegal block on Bisi Johnson created a 1st and 30. Eagles have great field position with a chance to tie the game.

Vikings 24, Eagles 17

12:18 We have a ballgame. Wentz hits Jeffery for the short touchdown after a 45-yard pass to Sanders. This time Sanders burned Barr on a wheel route, just like he did Kendricks in the first half.

Halftime: Vikings 24, Eagles 10

Second Quarter

0:20 Eagles fake a field goal for some reason, and Elliott's pass is tipped and intercepted by Everson Griffen.

1:11 Andrew Sendejo burns his old team with an interception. Cousins' pass hit Diggs right in the hands and popped up into the air.

Vikings 24, Eagles 10

7:09 This game is far from over. Wentz hits Miles Sanders for a 32-yard touchdown to cap a 5-play, 75-yard drive. Kendricks burned by the rookie running back up the seam.

Vikings 24, Eagles 3

9:39 Well then. Cousins rolls left after play-action and hits Diggs for another touchdown. 49 yards. This is crazy.

9:43 Mike Hughes breaks up the pass to Jeffery on 4th and 2. The Vikings take over from the Eagles' 49-yard-line with a great chance to add to their lead.

Vikings 17, Eagles 3

11:39 That was quick. 13-yard run by Mattison, then a 62-yard bomb TD to a wide open Stefon Diggs.

Vikings 10, Eagles 3

12:15 Jake Elliott's 53-yard field goal is good. Eagles remain run-heavy on offense. Two near misses by Vikings D: Griffen had Wentz in his arms for a sack but couldn't get him down, and a tipped pass by Kendricks was nearly picked.

First Quarter

Vikings 10, Eagles 0

1:57 Dan Bailey 39-yard field goal is good. Vikings moved the ball again after starting with good field position. Cousins took to long to get it to an open Thielen on 3rd down.

6:12 Jordan Howard runs up the middle for no gain on third down, forcing a three and out on the Eagles' first drive.

Vikings 7, Eagles 0

7:48 Touchdown Vikings. Cousins drops a beautiful touch pass to Thielen in the back of the end zone. 13 play, 75 yard drive to open the game. 3 catches for 31 yards for Thielen.

9:10 Zimmer challenges the ruling that Cook was short of the first down; it's overturned.

11:37 Diving catch by Adam Thielen on 3rd and 13 extends the drive. Beat former teammate Andrew Sendejo over the middle. Cook runs for 14 on the next play.

12:56 Nifty reverse to Stefon Diggs, who picks up the first down but looked to have a lot more room to run if he cut back to the inside. Not much blocking by Cousins.

15:00 Vikings receive the opening kickoff, go to work

What a response by the Vikings after the lead was cut to 4. Two long touchdown drives to all but seal the win.

Cousins getting too float-happy. Just throw it on a line if Thielen is that open, dammit
