The Philadelphia Eagles will look to defend their home turf on Monday against the Minnesota Vikings at 8:30 p.m. ET. The game is expected to be a close one, with the Eagles going off at just a 2-point favorite.
Philadelphia sure made it a nail-biter, but they managed to escape with a 38-35 victory over the Detroit Lions this past Sunday. Philadelphia QB Jalen Hurts was slinging it as he accumulated 243 passing yards in addition to rushing for one TD and 90 yards. Hurts ended up with a passer rating of 120.
Meanwhile, while not quite a landslide, the matchup between Minnesota and the Green Bay Packers this past Sunday was still a pretty decisive one as Minnesota wrapped it up with a 23-7 win at home. The team accrued 17 points in the first half and coasted on those for the win. Minnesota’s WR Justin Jefferson was one of the most active players for the team, catching nine passes for two TDs and 184 yards.
Special teams collected 11 points for Minnesota. K Greg Joseph delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
Philadelphia ended up a good deal behind the Vikings when they played when the teams previously met three seasons ago, losing 38-20. Maybe the Eagles will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the contest and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.

ESPN will host this week’s Monday Night Football matchup between the Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles with kickoff set for 8:15 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
The Eagles are coming off a close win over the Detroit Lions in Week 1. Up 38-21 heading into the fourth quarter, the Eagles nearly blew a two-touchdown lead in a 38-35 win over Detroit. Philly has big issues on the defensive side of the ball, something that could come to light matching up vs. Justin Jefferson. The offense should be fine. A.J. Brown caught 10 passes for 155 yards in his Philly debut. The run game combined for over 200 yards on just under 40 carries.
The Vikings pulled off a convincing win over the rival Green Bay Packers in Week 1. Minnesota has Jefferson to thank for that. He put up nine catches for 184 yards and two TDs, accounting for more than half of the offense. That will be key for a win over the Eagles. Kirk Cousins wasn’t tested much so we’ll see how things go if the Eagles can get pressure on the QB. Overall, the Vikings defense performed well and looks promising under new head coach Kevin O’Connell.
