You bet your hashtag Eagles fans (and haters) noticed what happened in Minneapolis as the Eagles flailed their way to a tie with the Bengals.
While Carson Wentz was targeting guys like John Hightower and Deontay Burnett, Justin Jefferson was running wild for the Vikings.
Jefferson was the wide receiver from LSU that many Eagles supporters wanted with the 21st overall pick in April. The Eagles instead took Jalen Reagor, who missed the game with a torn UCL in his thumb. Reagor is expected to miss 6-8 weeks.
Minnesota, with pick No. 22, took Jefferson, who had his first big game with seven catches, and made his first visit to the end zone with a scintillating 71-yard touchdown.
Jefferson’s 175 yards were the second-most in a game this season (Julian Edelman had 179 yards in Week 2) and the most in Week 3 heading into the Monday night.
Up in North Jersey, San Francisco was using the rookie wide receiver they took at No. 25 to help pound the Giants. Brandon Aiyuk caught five of his eight targets for 70 yards and ran the ball three times for another 31 yards. He scored a touchdown on one of them.
Across the field at Lincoln Financial Field, Tee Higgins, the 33rd pick, scored Cincinnati’s two touchdowns in that hideous 23-23 game.
