PHILADELPHIA (AP) — This time http://www.thevikingslockerroom.com/auth...ght-jersey , it’s Kirk Cousins vs. Carson Wentz.The quarterbacks and the stakes will be different when the Philadelphia Eagles (2-2) host the Minnesota Vikings (1-2-1) in a rematch of the NFC championship game Sunday.Nick Foles led the Eagles to a 38-7 win over Case Keenum and the Vikings last January. The Super Bowl MVP went back to the bench after Wentz returned from knee surgery in Week 3. Keenum went to Denver because the Vikings gave Cousins a fully guaranteed $84 million contract to be the face of their franchise.Neither team is playing at a championship level right now and both are desperate for a win.“They’re a great team, record aside,” Wentz said. “We know we’ll get their best, obviously with the way it ended last year.”Cousins had been successful against the Eagles in seven starts for Washington. He had thrown for 2,122 yards with 16 touchdowns and five interceptions while going 4-3 in those games.“It’s a great environment, a great place to play an NFL football game on a Sunday afternoon. Great crowd,” Cousins said. “I’ve had my fair share of battles there. Some have come out victorious, some have come out as the loser. It will be a great test for us.”Some things to watch between the Vikings and Eagles:FLIP’S FAMILIARITYVikings offensive coordinator John DeFilippo was Philadelphia’s quarterbacks coach the past two seasons. He’s quite familiar with Wentz and coach Doug Pederson’s system. The Eagles already beat former offensive coordinator Frank Reich and the Colts in Week 3.“The same as going against Frank Womens Matt Wile Jersey , some of the terminology, some of the calls, maybe hand signals, whatever it may be that he knows,” Pederson said. “Listen, he’s a smart guy, but he’s also preparing his team to get ready to play. I think that’s where his focus is right now this week.“We’re seeing some of the same things from their offense that we do, and so it’s good for our defense to see. We’re aware of it. It’s a home game Dan Bailey Jersey , so we can cut down on a lot of the signals, a lot of the verbiage, things like that at the line, and just try to go play.”GETTING DEFENSIVEBoth teams are struggling on defense. The Vikings had the No. 1 defense a year ago. They’re 21st this season. The Eagles were fourth last year. Now they’re 10th and the secondary has been shredded by Ryan Fitzpatrick and Marcus Mariota in two road losses.The Vikings are missing three-time Pro Bowl defensive end Everson Griffen. The Eagles lost safety Rodney McLeod.NO BALANCEThe Vikings are last in the NFL in rushing and Dalvin Cook leads the team with only 98 yards while averaging just 2.7 per carry. The Eagles are first in run defense but poor against the pass. So expect Cousins to throw a ton. Or not.“It’s important for us to have balance,” Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. “It keeps the defensive line from pinning their ears back all the time. I think it helps the football team overall. We just have to do a better job.”NO BALANCE IIThe Eagles had success running the ball in an overtime loss at Tennessee, gaining 109 yards on 20 carries from backs Jay Ajayi and Wendell Smallwood. But Pederson called 74 percent pass plays.“We try to be as balanced as we can be and we’re going to play the game that we think needs to be played, and some of it is dictated during the course of the game,” offensive coordinator Mike Groh said. “Coach is as patient a play caller as there is in the running game in this league and really doesn’t deviate from it. … A run call is never very far from the tip of his finger. He’s always thinking about it and conversing with the staff during the course of the game.”DYNAMIC DUOVikings receivers Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs have been unstoppable. Diggs leads the team with three touchdowns and is averaging 11.5 yards per reception. Thielen has 40 catches and is the only player in the league with 100 yards receiving in every game this season. They’re going against a pair of cornerbacks http://www.thevikingslockerroom.com/auth...oss-jersey , Jalen Mills and Ronald Darby, who’ve struggled. I know, I’m as stunned as you are"Barring a completely and wholly unexpected development, it appears that the 2019 season will be the last one for wide receiver Laquon Treadwell in a Minnesota Vikings’ uniform.In a move that should come as a surprise to absolutely nobody, the Vikings have officially declined to exercise the fifth-year option on Treadwell’s rookie contract, meaning that he will become an unrestricted free agent after this season.To say that Treadwell has been disappointing since the Vikings made him the 23rd overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft would be a massive understatement. After a rookie season that saw him catch just one pass, Treadwell’s production hasn’t exactly skyrocketed since then. He’s appeared in 40 games in his Minnesota career, and in those games he has recorded just 56 receptions for 517 yards and one touchdown.Picking up Treadwell’s fifth-year option would have been an expensive proposition for the Vikings. The fifth-year option salary for wide receivers in Treadwell’s draft class would have given him a salary of around $10.2 million for 2020 Womens Ameer Abdullah Jersey , and if Treadwell had become injured at any point during the season to the point where he couldn’t have passed a physical prior to the start of the new league year, the Vikings would have been on the hook for every penny of it.There was really no reason to think that the Vikings were going to exercise Laquon Treadwell’s option, and on Wednesday they made it official that they would not.
