The Vikings' defense stiffened, though, moving the Eagles back 10 yards and forcing them to punt.

The Eagles are doing things that a good team doesn't do, that a team that aspires to be good can not do, and that a team that just won a Super Bowl should not do. Either way, this is not a well-run machine on offense or defense. Unlike the previous week, when the made Marcus Mariota look good, Cousins might have played his best game ever, considering the heat he was under. Adam Thielen recorded his fifth straight game with 100 yards receiving, becoming the third player in National Football League history with 100 receiving yards in each of team's first five games of the season, joining Charley Hennigan in 1961 (Oilers) and Bob Boyd in 1954 (Rams), according to Elias. Costly penalties stalled drives. Jay Ajayi's fumble at the Vikings' 5-yard line was a backbreaker, though, and while Smallwood had the touchdown, he dropped a third-down pass. "That was a big play".

To their credit, numerous players are owning their mistakes. The offensive line - particularly tackles Jason Peters and Lane Johnson - has underperformed.

"Personally, I feel fine", he said. "If I remember correctly, we had maybe three carries at the end of the first quarter", the running back said in defeat, per McManus. I'll bite the bullet. And though Wentz put up sparkling numbers against the Vikings - 24-for-35, 311 yards, two touchdowns, no interceptions - he had not been the same quarterback he was last season, not yet. "It starts with me and goes right down the line". "But we have to clean it up". "I've been playing pretty well", he told the Philadelphia Inquirer in the locker room postgame. Cleaning up self-inflicted mistakes resulting in what many called a lack of focus. "I'd like to have that play back, no question". "If the quarterback has the ball, I know they don't want low hits on the quarterback, but if you're falling down, I guess you're supposed to just let the quarterback go", safety Malcolm Jenkins said.

"We can't have that", Pederson said. "Little mistakes are killing us".

To seal the victory, the Vikings relied on the play of their special teams, which has gone through its own set of growing pains this season after releasing rookie kicker Daniel Carlson following the Green Bay game. "We've got to really be hard on ourselves and learn from these mistakes and turn it around fast".

The struggles continued to start this season.
