Philly Newscaster Says Eagles Players Need To Give Up Sex Until They Stop Playing Terribly (VIDEO)

This was the drive after the Eagles scored their first touchdown of the game.

Minnesota's Adam Thielen became the fourth receiver to top 100 yards against the Eagles' defense this season, joining Julio Jones, DeSean Jackson and Corey Davis.

The penalties are what have to be the most frustrating part of that drive.

They did these things last week, in an overtime loss in Nashville to the Titans, and they did them again Sunday, in a 23-21 loss to the Vikings at Lincoln Financial Field.

Anthony Barr certainly suffered at the hands of that game-plan last week, but against the Eagles, he was used more to the level of his talents, chasing the running game, keeping his zone, and finding the football. Graham later took down Roc Thomas for a 2-yard loss at the Eagles 4, helping forcing a third-quarter field goal.

The Eagles went three-and-out on their first possession on Sunday, with two Carson Wentz pass attempts and a sack. There to recover the fumble was nose tackle Linval Joseph, who breathed life into the game before he headed to the sideline to get back all the oxygen he expelled on the ultimate big-guy touchdown.

The Vikings were on a two-game losing streak, and may have saved their season with a win, which improved their record to 2-2-1. On second and 10, Wentz was flagged for intentional grounding that moved the ball back to the Minnesota 40 and eventually the Eagles would be forced to punt when they couldn't convert on third-and-20. Smallwood later stretched out for a 2-point conversion to make it 20-14. With another TD, they would have another shot at tying the game. Perhaps more importantly, it appeared Bennett was blocked into Cousins by Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph.

Giants officially waive 1st round bust Ereck Flowers
He did not, and so now he is part of the Giants' future, while Flowers is officially - finally - in the past. But when the Giants' offense took the field for the ensuing possession, Wheeler was back out there.

Wentz got crushed by edge rusher Stephen Weatherly and the ball popped up in the air, conveniently enough for Joseph, who snatched it up and ran an impressive 69 yards to the house to give the Vikes a 10-3 lead.

The veteran back also fumbled at Minnesota's 5-yard line to end a promising drive in the second half, acknowledging that that result somewhat squanders his argument.
