How Can The Eagles Takedown The Undefeated Vikings?
The Eagles have a daunting task when they return home this Sunday to play the 5-0 Minnesota Vikings. Vikings are 1st in NFL in 2016 in Points Against (12.6 per game) along with their Defense being Top 10 in NFL in Touchdowns Allowed. Their Offense has committed zero Turnovers on the season while being ranked 6th in NFL in Time of Possession.
NFL Network Analyst and 11-year NFL Offensive Lineman Shaun O'Hara joined Rich Quinones on Wednesday with his keys for the Eagles versus the Vikings on Sunday:
“One of the best things you can do against the Vikings (defense) is spread them out and try to make them tackle. They have some very physical corners, Xavier Rhodes is a very physical corner; he did a great job against Odell (Beckham Jr.) so it is going to be tough sledding for the Eagles offense. This is where the (Eagles) defense has to come in, and quite frankly the defense failed them last week. I give credit to the Redskins O-line for giving Cousins time but the Vikings do not exactly have a great run game; you can not let Sam Bradford sit back there and put the baby in the pocket. You’ve got to get pressure on him.”
