That game was like a roller coaster. Lions ram it down our throats on the first drive, then Eagles dominate for much of the game, and then we hang on as the defense gets porous at the end.

No pass rush. Knew this could be an issue heading into the season, but it’s a big issue right now.

Defense was porous throughout the second half. It’s a big concern. Lions have definitely improved and play with toughness. They will be fun to watch. Glad they didn’t get us today.

I'm not overly concerned about the defense. I just think the Lions are going to be better tha npeople think. They do not quit.

I dunno. They were making our guy uncomfortable and we weren’t returning the favor. The Lions adjusted to our aggressive scheme against the run and we never figured it out. But that said, always great to get a win in the books.

Gotta disagree. After the first drive, we shut down their run for a long while. We went to 5 DL and they couldn't move the ball at all.

Great win last night against a quality opponent, still things to clean up, but that's fine after two games. Cousins is a strange player. Looks all world one game, then throws three picks in key spots. He must drive Vikings fans nuts.

His record on MNF is unbelievably bad. Maybe 2-10?

Some of the Eagles beat writers I follow on Twitter have been talking about this as a litmus test because Cousins beats bad teams and loses to good ones. Think his MNF/night game record is a reflection of that because it is usually 2 good teams playing those.

See this note from Kempski's article:

6) The Measuring Stick Award 📏: Kirk Cousins

Cousins has a career record of 10-43 against teams that have finished the season with a winning record. He beats bad teams, and loses to good ones.

The game last night was weird to me. The Eagles utterly dominated the game and it seemed like it was 63-0, but only scored 24 points. The Vikings had 3 or 4 red zone trips that yielded 0 points. It was a much closer game than it seemed.

The Eagles May have taken a foot off the gas near the end of the game, but Minnesota had their chances for sure.
