Eagles and McNabb Defeat the Vikings 23-16
The criticisms behind the play of the 2007 Minnesota Vikings seem to play like a broken record. The Vikings lost another game at home to a team with a losing record. Once again, they were unsure who would start at quarterback, Adrian Peterson was limited in carries, and once again the Vikings gave up over 300 yards passing to a quarterback that had nothing but question marks going into the game.
Donovan McNabb under much scrutiny in Philadelphia coming off of a knee injury, played his best game of the season completing 23 of 36 passes for 333 yards and a touchdown. The Vikings continued to show why they are the league's worst pass defense.
Reggie Brown caught a career-high eight passes for 105 yards and Brian Westbrook had 92 total yards and two touchdowns, ESPN.com reports. Both of Westbrook's scores came in the red zone, where Philadelphia has had problems all year.
The Vikings continued their stretch of juggling quarterbacks as well. Going into the game there was a mystery between who would start, Tarvaris Jackson or Kelly Holcomb. Jackson was injured and ruled unable to play and Holcomb ended up injuring his neck early in the second half. The only quarterback left out of the mix, Brooks Bollinger, came in completing 7 of 10 passes for 94 yards in under one half. He gave Minnesota's offense a much needed spark, but it was too late.
The (2-5) Vikings will host the San Diego Chargers at home next Sunday.
