NFL Nation's Kevin Seifert tells Mackey & Judd that one road loss to a good team isn't the worst thing in the world, but the Vikings' offense has to figure out how to score.
1500 ESPN Vikings beat writer Matthew Coller joins Mackey & Judd and they try to answer, "Who's to blame for Minnesota's anemic offense against the Eagles?"
Vikings NFL Nation reporter Ben Goessling and Bears NFL Nation reporter Jeff Dickerson preview the Week 8 matchup, discuss their top potential fantasy play and make their game predictions.
Vikings have little reason to worry
Minnesota's loss didn't hurt its playoff odds much. FPI still has the Vikings out in front in the NFC, though Football Outsiders gives the Seahawks a narrow advantage. Playoff odds (Insider)
Doug Kezirian and Bob Scucci break down the lines for NFL Week 8 and discuss the difficulty in assessing the Cowboys, the magnitude of the Vikings-Bears matchup and more.
Could Jarius Wright be traded?
The veteran WR has lost playing time to the emerging Adam Thielen, and the cap-strapped Vikings could benefit from some relief by moving him. Keep an eye out as the trade deadline looms. Potential trade targets
The return of Jay Cutler makes the Bears a more explosive (and implosive?) team, as the Vikings are well aware.
The Vikings' Sam Bradford fumbled four times in Sunday's loss, but it wasn't just because of the scheme the Eagles used against their ex-quarterback.
FPI: Vikings' defense carrying offense
Minnesota maintains the NFL's most efficient defense in the latest FPI rankings. But the Vikings' offense, exposed in Sunday's loss in Philly, remains a quandary, falling a whopping 15 spots. Full FPI rankings
Given the spate of injuries the team has suffered, I am surprised that it took this long
Vikings take tumble, still among NFL's best
Following Sunday's turnover-filled loss in Philadelphia, the Vikings fall three spots in our Power Rankings. In spite of the issues that were exposed, they can turn it around quickly Monday night. Power Rankings
Is Vikings' D the NFL's most dominant unit?
Two of five Insiders from our roundtable think so, as the group continued its tear in Philadelphia despite a loss. That said, the O-line might be an impediment to competing for a Super Bowl. Insiders debate
The Vikings are undefeated no more, and coach Mike Zimmer pins Sunday's loss on Minnesota doing what his team seldom does: beat itself.
Mike Zimmer admitted he's "concerned about the offensive play in general" after the Vikings' lethargic loss to the Eagles on Sunday.
Ben Goessling ESPN Staff Writer
Mike Zimmer attributed more of the Vikings' issues to players pressing too much and making uncharacteristic mental mistakes than anything else. If there was any idea the Vikings were overconfident coming out of their bye week, Zimmer didn't seem to share it. There are few things that irk the coach more than dumb mistakes, and he saw plenty of them in his film review of the Vikings' 21-10 loss to the Eagles.
Ben Goessling ESPN Staff Writer
Mike Zimmer said Andrew Sendejo is day-to-day with an ankle injury, and Jerick McKinnon should be fine.
Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has been cleared to play in Chicago's Monday Night Football matchup against the Minnesota Vikings on Halloween.
Sam Bradford, Vikings had an ugly day
The wealth of sacks and turnovers weren't all Bradford's fault, but they led to him posting the lowest QBR by any player in Week 7. It would have been worse if not for opponent adjustments. Week 7's best, worst QBs
'Sam is just like any other quarterback. You hit him, he's not going to be the same quarterback.' But Carson wasn't any better
Hold on to the ball!
There were a combined five turnovers on five possessions over an 11-play stretch in the first quarter of Sunday's Vikings-Eagles game. Per the Elias Sports Bureau, it's the first time there were turnovers on five straight possessions in a game since Oct. 18, 2009, in a game between the Steelers and Browns.
Is it 2000 all over again?
Per ESPN Stats & Info, Sunday's loss to the Eagles marks the first time the Vikings were the NFL's last unbeaten team since 2000, when Randy Moss led them to the NFC Championship Game. The last time the NFL's last unbeaten team in a season won the Super Bowl was the 2006 Colts.
