GAMEDAY PREVIEW: Vikings Visit Eagles Tonight in Philly
The Minnesota Vikings look to build on last week's season-opening win tonight in Philadelphia against the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field in Week 2 of the NFL season.
Last week the Vikings opened the regular season with a 23-7 win over the Green Bay Packers in Minneapolis. The Eagles opened their season last Sunday with a 38-35 win over the Lions in Detroit.
Obviously, a huge week for us. A big opportunity to go to a really tough environment and really a true first test with going on the road. They're playing really good football right now, really tough outfit in all three phases, so we've got to have a great, great week of preparation and making sure we're ready to go, handling some different aspects of the plan this week from the noise to obviously, just in general not being in your home environment, so it will be big for our guys.
For the Vikings, only cornerback Andrew Booth, Jr. (quad) is 'out' for tonight's game.
No players are listed on the Eagles' injury report.
The Vikings and Eagles have only faced each other 29 times in the regular and postseason, with Minnesota holding a slight lead in the all-time series 15-14. The Vikings won their last matchup 38-20 in October of 2019 at U.S. Bank Stadium.
The Vikings are 1½ point underdogs against the Eagles tonight.
The game is set to kickoff at 7:30 pm CT. (TV: ABC)
