The Philadelphia Eagles and the Minnesota Vikings will match up on the NFL circuit Sunday.
The Eagles are sitting at 3-2 on the season so far. Philly has fallen to the Falcons 24-20 and the Lions 27-24 but otherwise taken out the Redskins 32-27, the Packers 34-27 and the Jets 31-6.
In the win over New York, Philadelphia QB Carson Wentz had 189 yards with one TD, and Jordan Howard had 62 yards and one TD. Zach Ertz led the charge receiving with his 57 yards and TD off five catches.
Over on the Vikings’ side, they’re 3-2 this year as well. Minnesota has fallen to the Packers 21-16 and the Bears 16-6 but has wins over the Falcons 28-12, the Raiders 34-14 and the Giants 28-10.
In the New York game, Vikings QB Kirk Cousins posted 306 yards and two touchdowns, while Dalvin Cook had 132 yards rushing. Adam Thielen was the lead receiver there on 130 yards and two scores from two catches.
The Eagles are 5-0 ATS versus a team with a winning record and 5-1 ATS in their last six in Week 6. Philly is 5-1 ATS in their last six road games and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 in October.
Meanwhile, the Vikings are 6-1-1 ATS in their last eight in October and 1-6-1 ATS in their last eight after an ATS win. Minnesota is 1-7 ATS versus a team with a winning record and 1-6 ATS in the last seven after a straight-up win.
Philadelphia could have left their offense at home and beaten the Jets with defensive scores last week; New York was that bad. Still, the Eagles did their jobs and coupled with a big win over a good Packers team at Lambeau that makes two solid games for them.
As for Minnesota, their woes last week appeared much ado about nothing following that Giants drubbing, but a victory here would put much of the early doubts to rest. I’m going to go with Minnesota to keep things rolling and cover in what should be a fun and competitive matchup.
