Vikings vs. Eagles Tuesday Night Football: Grading Philly's Performance

The Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles' Week 16 matchup was put on hold for two days due to the extensive snow storm in the Philadelphia area. This seemed to be a problem for the Eagles from the beginning, giving the Vikings more time to prepare, and even possibly get Brett Favre back for the game. The Vikings may not have had Favre back, but they may have someone even better. 

Philadelphia just gave this game away. From the beginning, it didn't look like the Eagles were playing like a playoff and possible Super Bowl contender. They played like a team that was already eliminated from the postseason, playing the Super Bowl champions.

The Eagles lost the game at home, and their record slips to 10-5; fortunately, they are already a lock as NFC East division winners. 

The Vikings may have found their franchise QB. Not only did Joe Webb have no turnovers in the game, but he was also able to win the game against a playoff-caliber team. This is huge for the Vikings organization and I am incredibly impressed with how Webb performed in this game. With Webb's performance the Vikings were able to pick up another win and their record improves to 6-9; of course, they are still out of the playoffs.

Here is the Eagles postgame report card following a loss to the Vikings:
