Philadelphia Eagles vs Minnesota Vikings

You can stream the game on NFL Sunday Ticket (subscription needed) if you are not in those areas. Yet, Bradford has done nothing but prove everyone wrong and complete over 70% of his passes and lead the Vikings to four straight wins, after not playing in the season-opener. Jordan Matthews led the Eagles once again, with 3 receptions for 75 yards while Nelson Agholor racked up 34 yards on 3 receptions of his own.

The Vikings are a 3-point favorite to win the game, according to Vegas Insider.

Sam Bradford returns to Philadelphia on Sunday aiming to extend Minnesota's unbeaten start to the season in the latest twist to what has been a surreal year for the former Eagles quarterback. "I think I owe it to all of the guys in our locker room to not try and do anything special, not try to do anything extra", Bradford said. I think when you get caught up in everything that's going on outside the building, when you get caught up in things outside of football, that's when things can go wrong.

On the offense, Minnesota is averaging 23.8 points and 302.6 yards per game.

The Eagles need to get pressure on Bradford on Sunday if they hope to upset the Vikings. "I've tried to watch as much as possible".

"From my standpoint, just staying positive, staying upbeat, the energy level [and] just keep reminding them that they are a good football team and they have got to believe in one another and put the thing back on track", he added.

To get a better handle on this year's Vikings, here's what they're saying about the Eagles' Week 7 opponent. So who has the advantage? "We're very grateful that we've been given the opportunity to share the facility, with a top-two team in rugby in the world to see what their world's like", Rams coach Jeff Fisher said. And you know, we're taking a young quarterback who's ... We know a lot about him. "It's been a whirlwind and I'm just trying to enjoy it day by day". His safety valve is tight end Kyle Rudolph (21 catches, 236 yards, three touchdowns), who Bradford uses much in the way he used Ertz with the Eagles. Sadly, it does not seem as though the Vikings' kicker has fully recovered from the effects of missing that field goal attempt.

"We have to be more disciplined", linebacker Nigel Bradham said.

All of this is true so far, though we run the risk of getting ahead of ourselves a little bit. But they ultimately made a decision to keep Barbre at left guard and replace Johnson with rookie Halapoulivaati Vaitai. But coach Doug Pederson is sticking with the fifth-round pick instead of moving other guys around on the line.

However, since the Philadelphia Eagles have returned from their week 4 bye, the defense has allowed over 20 points in their last two contests and struggled to stop opposing running backs.

We are a long, long way from the end of the 2016 regular season. There's a reason they signed him: He's not T.J. Clemmings. If the Eagles lose this game, they are in danger of being three games behind the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC East. They sent their 2017 first-round pick and a 2018 selection that will range from the second to the fourth round to the Eagles four days after original quarterback Teddy Bridgewater went down with a massive knee injury.

But don't expect a barrage of trash-talking from the soft-spoken brothers. I'm sure they're going to hype it up. "He's not on offense".
