PHILADELPHIA - The Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles play on Monday, Sept. 19, in an NFL Week 2 game.
After a disappointing playoff exit in 2022, the Philadelphia Eagles hope to improve their playoff chances in the upcoming season. Their Week 1 game was against the Detroit Lions, winning 38-35 on the road. They will take on the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2 at Lincoln Financial Field. The Vikings are coming off a 23-7 win over the Green Bay Packers and should have their hands full against the Eagles in the coming weeks.
While the Vikings have a slightly better defense than the Eagles, both teams are highly capable of scoring points. Philadelphia's offense is a bit more balanced than the Vikings', but the Eagles have a home-field advantage, which helps them. The Over/Under line has been set at 51.5 points, a solid number to bet on.
Both teams have been improved by their off-season moves. The Philadelphia Eagles added Haason Reddick and Jordan Davis, who should help them in the secondary. Another defensive line addition is James Bradberry, who will pair up with Darius Slay to create a strong duo. The Philadelphia Eagles are a top-15 team and a legitimate contender for the playoffs.
