The Vikings effectively neutralized LeSean McCoy most of the game, holding him to 44 yards on 13 carries. Eagles' only significant rushing yardage came on Mike Vick scrambles.
Mike Vick had his poorest game of the season, turning the ball over three times and averaging just over 6 yards per attempt. The offensive line seemed incapable of protecting him.
For just the second time since Week 4, the Eagles gave up 120-plus rushing yards. Adrian Peterson had 118 yards on 22 carries, an average of 5.4. Quarterback Joe Webb rushed for 31 yards, including 9 on a touchdown run.
The Eagles failed to register an interception for just the second time this season and allowed rookie Joe Webb to average 7.5 yards per attempt. Cornerback Dimitri Patterson had a second straight poor game.
The Eagles' return game was a non-factor. Special teams had a couple of penalties. The highlight of David Akers' night was a touchback on a kickoff. He came up well short on a 54-yard field goal attempt.
The Eagles' lethal offense was held in check by the Vikings. Birds had everything to play for and the Vikings had nothing to play for except Leslie Frazier's job. Yet the Eagles came out flat and played that way the entire game.
