The Eagles were 30 yards from winning a football game on Sunday.

With four minutes and change left in the game's first half, the Eagles drove to the Vikings' 31 easily on their fourth possession.

"It's hard. Because if you hit a quarterback in the waist and slide down, which can happen if you're off balance because pass rushing is hard, you're going to slide down", defensive end Chris Long said.

Coleman made what proved to be a crucial call in the Eagles' 23-21 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, flagging Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett for roughing the passer in the final minutes of the first half.

An inexplicable loss to the hapless Buffalo Bills, a tie with the rival Green Bay Packers, that devastating loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in last year's NFC title game, etc.

The Eagles got the ball back at the Minnesota 30 with 10:03 left on a lost fumble by Roc Thomas following a backward pass from Cousins.

Cousins threw for 301 yards and one touchdown, and completed 30 of 37 passes to become the first player in National Football League history with at least 30 completions in four consecutive games.

Joseph snatched Wentz's fumble out of the air and rumbled the distance to give the Vikings a 10-3 lead in the second quarter.

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. But the Eagles went after Wentz in the 2016 draft, went all in on him, because they believed him capable of handling such pressure and expectation, and, well, here we are. He had two 6-yard runs in the first quarter. Unlike the previous week, when the made Marcus Mariota look good, Cousins might have played his best game ever, considering the heat he was under. Smallwood later stretched out for a 2-point conversion to make it 20-14. They couldn't get to Cousins, who carved up the Eagles for 150 yards on 20 of 24 completions. Weatherly popped the ball up and it landed in Joseph's hands.

Despite being down 17-3 at the half, Philadelphia called seven run plays on the first drive of the third quarter and got within the shadow of the goal line - when Ajayi lost a fumble at the Minnesota 5.

Without Cook, the Vikings rushed for 77 yards on 23 attempts.

Isaac Seumalo was not the answer to the Eagles' protection issues, to nobody's surprise. But Wentz was called for intentional grounding and coach Doug Pederson elected not to let Jake Elliott try a 58-yarder.
