Following Eagles loss to the Vikings is it time to panic?

Wentz was also sacked three times for minus-28 yards.

Stefen Wisniewski was replaced at left guard by Isaac Seumalo prior to the Vikings game, and he said that his benching was not related to his level of play. Through those five games, he has caught the ball 47 times for 589 yards and 3 touchdowns. It's easy to forget, in the wake of Nick Foles' near-flawless play in both the NFC Championship Game and Super Bowl LII, just how often the Eagles won games previous year because Wentz, more than anyone, won them. On the other two drives, one resulted in a Jake Elliott 30-yard field goal, thanks to a 48-yard reception by Shelton Gibson, and on the other end when Linval Joseph took a fumble 64 yards for a touchdown and a 10-3 lead with 4:12 left in the first half. I looked inside of me, sacked the quarterback, and I think led to us losing the game.

Along with Wentz's fumble that led to a Vikings' score, the Eagles had numerous self-inflicted mistakes throughout the game.

"We talked all week", quarterback Kirk Cousins said. "We gotta be better". "We need to check ourselves, myself included, and figure out what I can do to help this team". "We're just doing a lot of things we don't normally do that you don't see out of a championship team".

Lane Johnson's struggles continue. "Little mistakes like that - really, the same thing happened last week".

When Minnesota needed a big defensive stop late in the game when its offense gave the Eagles unfavorable field position after Cousins fumbled while throwing laterally (it was ruled a backwards pass), the Vikings re-ignited their pass rush.

Carson Wentz's overall numbers - a 68.6 completion percentage, 8.9 yards per attempts, 2 touchdowns - were impressive. On the Eagles' first touchdown drive of the game, he threw for 50 yards and found Smallwood for a 12-yard touchdown reception. "But we believed that, so we just did what we did". "If I remember correctly we had maybe three carries at the end of the first quarter". This is a totally new season, new team, everything about it as we are finding out. That kick made up for two Bailey misses in the first half, from 28 and 45 yards. The Eagles did eventually score to put 21 points on the board, but it wasn't enough to beat the Vikings as Minnesota recovered an onside kick to ice a 23-21 win.

"I paired it off with speed off the ball", Weatherly said of his big play.
