Previewing the Eagles’ offense vs Vikings’ defense

 The once proud Minnesota Vikings’ defense has fallen from it’s historic 2017 regular season performance due to a number of factors Youth DeAndre Carter Jersey , but is it enough for the banged up Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles’ offense to exploit?The Eagles have made adjustments to their lineup, whether due to performance or injury, before every game this season. The newest tinker includes a shake-up at left guard, where Isaac Seumalo will supplant the struggling Stefen Wisniewski.Considering the issues with pass protection against stunts and blitzes the coaching staff decided it best to try a new configuration. We’ll know right away if those problems persist against a Vikings team that frequently utilizes a double mug look that has confused the Eagles. It’s not just the line missing these pick-ups, it’s the running backs as well, but with Corey Clement still nursing a quad injury a switch at left guard may not be enough.That’s not to say that the Vikings pass rush has been a bulldozer. Over the last three weeks they’ve barely scrapped 30% pressure rates after hanging a 50-burger on the San Francisco 49ers in Week 1. If they get closer to that Week 1 performance Youth Fletcher Cox Jersey , it might be time to hit the panic button. That’s not something I was expecting to say about this line only five weeks into the season.Beyond the pass rush, the Vikings’ secondary has been gashed for big plays in the air due to some shaky secondary play. Xavier Rhodes has not looked like his usual shutdown self and the rest of the unit isn’t holding their end of the bargain.We broke down how the Eagles can attack the Vikings in the newest Kist & Solak Show; stream it on the media player below or click here if the player doesn’t load. As always, FLY EAGLES FLY!Dallas Goedert loses bet to Carson Wentz The Eagles have two very proud alumni of the Dakota universities on their roster, with Carson Wentz having played for the North Dakota State Bison, and tight end Dallas Goedert suiting up for the South Dakota State Jackrabbits.These guys may be friends now, but the NDSU-SDSU rivalry is real Authentic Chris Long Jersey , and the two made a friendly wager about the outcome of last weekend’s game. With the Bison besting the Jackrabbits 21-17, Goedert lost the bet, and on Wednesday, paid up by decking himself out in Bison gear.Also, can we also please talk about how there is a Bobblehead of college QB Carson Wentz high-fiving Thundar, the Bison mascot!?(So Authentic Nick Foles Jersey , I looked into it....)This particular Bobblehead was unveiled on Sept. 21 as the latest addition to the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum (which, yes, is a thing). It was unveiled as part of a new series of 12 athletes high-fiving their mascots. The two NFL versions were Dak Prescott with Rowdy, and Tom Brady with Pat Patriot. (Booooo.) They’re only producing up to 1,000 of the Carson Wentz-Thundar Bobbleheads, but it looks like there are still some available if you’re into this kind of thing.(Editor’s note: This post has been updated to reflect the correct spelling of Thundar the Bison mascot Womens Brandon Brooks Jersey , as (appreciatively) pointed out in the comments by CDfromND.)
