Carson Wentz, Eagles fall short to Vikings in NFC title game rematch

The Eagles showed slight improvements from their performance last week against the Titans, but it was not enough to secure a win. Corey Clement hasn't played in the last two because of a quadriceps injury. I wasn't trying to go for anything special, just trying to wrap him up and get him to the ground the proper way so I wouldn't get a flag. The Vikings kicked a field goal with a late fourth-quarter drive.

Heading into Sunday's contest, Philly's offensive line had given up 14 sacks with an adjusted sack percentage of 7.7, according to Football Outsiders.

Trailing 20-3, the Eagles cut the deficit to 20-14 on Carson Wentz's 12-yard touchdown pass to Wendell Smallwood and Smallwood's 2-point conversion run with 12:09 left in the game.

The Vikings are now crushing the Eagles, 20-3. The Eagles seem to be cautious about Wentz taking unnecessary hits, but to go away from a sure bet in short-yardage situations seems very silly.

But if we learned nothing else from the three games the Eagles have lost, we've learned that the defense's ability to keep coming to the rescue isn't going to continue forever.

It didn't end up working out for the Eagles.

It appears the season is over for the Philadelphia Eagles' leading rusher, running back Jay Ajayi. Seumalo got first crack at the job and looked terrible on the Eagles' first drive, getting pushed back into Wentz's lap on all three pass attempts. For starters, it was questionable whether or not he even hit Cousins low. Cornerback Jalen Mills got beat on a double move, which was a constant theme throughout the game.

It's the full game reworked with VR in mind, with the entire pursuit of Handsome Jack and his cronies included in the new package. And this version of Borderlands 2 is a single player experience, which means Vault Hunter skills that rely on teamwork are out.

Thielen made history as the Vikings upstaged Super Bowl champions the Philadelphia Eagles 23-21. Hopefully, that changes because if not, they will not be making a return to the postseason.

There just seems to be one important fact that the Eagles and their fans have seemed to forget-the National Football League didn't stop playing games after the Eagles won.

After acquiring the running back from the Miami Dolphins in the middle of last season, Ajayi ended up being a key piece on offense for Philadelphia during their epic Super Bowl run, and was arguably the top player in the backfield on the current roster.

Despite not having solid protection from the offensive line, Wentz still did everything in his power to try to get the Eagles a win. This is a totally new season, new team, everything about it as we are finding out.

Cousins was fantastic in the face of pressure all game, completing 30-of-37 passes for 301 yards and a touchdown. On the Eagles' first touchdown drive of the game, he threw for 50 yards and found Smallwood for a 12-yard touchdown reception.

But if you've watched Vikings games this season, you know Cousins is part of the solution, not the problem.
