Coming from a diehard Eagles fan I am surprised by this. No team wants to start 0-2, that doesn't mean that it won't happen! The Eagles roster is head and shoulders better than the Vikings. Philly also did not look great after going up 16-0 last week and Hurts made some mistakes(4th qtr fumble), I expect a spirited effort and them to come out and take care of business. Not to mention Kirk Cousins is beyond awful in primetime games and against teams above .500...I just don't think the Vikings are that good and they did it with smoke and mirrors last year, got every break and bounce and won every close game. Back to reality this year for Minnesota.

I will say that Philly has a few key injuries but I think they can withstand them due to their depth. I actually did not take the spread but have the Eagles in a numerous teasers and ML parlays. Maybe we can both win.
