5 Bold predictions for the Eagles Monday night matchup vs. Vikings

·2 min read

The Eagles and Vikings are set for a huge Monday night showdown, and both teams have endless possibilities for an offensive explosion.

Philadelphia will enter as one of the top-ranked teams in the NFL after posting 38 points and 455 yards on an improved Lions team.

For Minnesota, they’ll feature Kirk Cousins at quarterback, and the talented Justin Jefferson makes his first visit to Philadelphia since being passed over by the Eagles for Jalen Reagor.

With expectations rising for both teams, here are five bold predictions for tonight.

Jefferson is among the best in the NFL today, but Philadelphia has two top ten cornerbacks and two physical safeties.

Draft night regret will fall to the wayside as the Eagles hold Justin Jefferson to under 50 yards receiving in a home win.

This is the boldest of all predictions, but Covey looks like a seasoned veteran fielding punt.
