"I do think it meant a lot to them as a defense", Cousins said.
Nick Foles led the Eagles to a 38-7 rout over Case Keenum and Minnesota's top-ranked defense in the title game on his way to earning MVP honors against New England.
The Eagles made things interesting in the second half on Sunday, but even before they found themselves in a three-score hole midway through the third quarter, there wasn't much commitment to the running game.
"We were in great position and we go backward", Wentz said.
The Eagles forced their first three-and-out of the day at the end of the third quarter, and Wentz orchestrated a 10-play, 66-yard drive that ended with a 12-yard touchdown pass to Wendell Smallwood on a wheel route past Eric Kendricks. We are playing like we are a young rookie team and we are not. "There was a lot of pressure to come in here and get a win".
"I think Coach Flip is giving Stef and Adam the opportunity to make those plays", Cousins said. Stephen Weatherly knocked the ball loose and Wentz couldn't recover to catch Joseph from behind after the strip-sack.
Cousins tossed a 3-yard touchdown pass to Adam Thielen to extend the lead to 17-3 at halftime. The first mistake happened late in the second quarter as defensive end Michael Bennett was called for a questionable roughing the passer penalty. A person familiar with the situation says Ajayi tore an ACL and will miss the rest of the season. "I have to do a better job". Pinned inside their own 5-yard line, the Vikings were able to flip the field and cap off the drive with a field goal after the throw that highlighted the toughness Cousins displayed all game.
If it wasn't dropped passes, it was faulty blocking.
Stefen Wisniewski was replaced at left guard by Isaac Seumalo prior to the Vikings game, and he said that his benching was not related to his level of play. In four of the Birds' five games, their opponent has marched 50 yards or more on their first drive.
Carson Wentz and the rest of Philadelphia's offense again had trouble converting in the red zone and on third down, even after the defense gave them a flawless opportunity to take a lead. But another illegal formation penalty followed and Wentz was called for intentional grounding. DE Derek Barnett (shoulder) and DT Haloti Ngata (calf) and RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) were inactive.
The Eagles (2-3) now have their own two-game losing streak to worry about, and will try to snap that when they play their first game inside the NFC East Division on Thursday night against the 1-4 New York Giants.
