The Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles entered Week 7 with the best and third-best turnover differentials in the NFL. Naturally, their game was considered the best matchup among the early slate prior to the games actually starting but the play on the field has been decidedly … less than stellar.
Philadelphia, who entered the game with just one interception thrown and one fumble lost, added one more of the former to their total early when Carson Wentz was picked off. The Vikings took the ball to the goal line.
From there, the Vikings, who had lost a fumble but who have not thrown an interception this season, unfortunately broke that streak when Sam Bradford was picked off in the end zone.
Fortunately for the Vikings, Wentz threw ANOTHER interception shortly after that. Oh, and the Eagles also fumbled the football somewhere in there as well. Through 10 minutes of play the game saw two first down and five turnovers, despite a combined turnover differential of plus-17 going into Week 7.
Two first downs. Five turnovers. Game of the week!
