Dave Weinberg’s Vikings-Eagles 2-minute drill
A quick look back at the Eagles 24-7 win on Monday Night against the Minnesota Vikings.
Eagles' best number: 3 (interceptions by Eagles defense)
Eagles' worst number: 0 (points scored in second half)

Eagles played much better than our Trivia Team. Movin' On Up lost a tiebreaker for second place at Nauti Spirits Distillery Monday before the game.
1. Eagles cornerback Darius Slay (two interceptions, great coverage)
2. Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (two rushing touchdowns, 333 passing yards with a TD)
3. Eagles punter Arryn Siposs (TD-saving tackle on a blocked field goal)
Eagles' best play
Siposs' hustle was the biggest play of the game. Vikings cornerback Patrick Peterson blocked a field goal attempt in the third quarter. Minnesota's Kris Boyd and dashed toward the opposite end zone, but Siposs hustled downfield and made the tackle. Eagles cornerback Avonte Maddox ended the Vikings' threat with an interception.
Eagles' worst play
An ill-timed screen pass bounced off running back Kenneth Gainwell and was intercepted by former Eagles linebacker Jordan Hicks in the fourth quarter.
The Vikings finally looked ready to mount a rally after Hicks' interception in the fourth quarter set up a first-and-goal. Slay ruined the comeback attempt with his second interception of the game in the end zone.
