Vikings Stun Eagles 24-14
The Minnesota Vikings stayed 2 days longer than expected but it turned out it was worth their wait as Minnesota upset Philadelphia 24-14 Tuesday night in Philly. The Vikings and Eagles were tied at 7 apiece at halftime after Antoine Winfield forced a Michael Vick fumble and returned it 45 yards for a touchdown. Joe Webb led the Vikings in the 2nd half rushing for a touchdown and throwing for 195 yards on the night. Webb ran for another 31 yards. Adrian Peterson returned to the lineup and ran for 118 yards and a touchdown. Michael Vick was sacked 6 times but still threw for 263 yards and a touchdown and he ran for another 63 yards and a score. The Vikings improve to 6-9 this season and 3-2 under interim head coach Leslie Frazier. Philadelphia falls to 10-5 and has missed out on a chance at a first round bye. The Vikings close the season at Detroit Sunday at noon, pregame on WJON at 11am.
