Minnesota Vikings-Philadelphia Eagles

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings kinda shart the bed Sunday in Philadelphia, racking up their first loss of the season 21-10 in a game that wasn’t even that close. Sam Bradford didn’t show well in his return to Philly (play calling and the offensive line didn’t help) and the Zimmer Hellfire Defense got after Carson Wentz, but missed opportunities and mental errors hallmarked the first L of the 2016 campaign.

• This Was a Failure in All Phases
• This Offensive Line is Why the Vikings Will Not Win a Super Bowl

When Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards was asked about first-round pick Trae Waynes last week, Edwards mentioned the rookie cornerback from Michigan State continues to improve as the preseason has progressed.

Then he was asked if he’s going to be ready to start Week 1.

Edwards responded, “Well, that’s what we’re aiming for, that’s what we’re all working for, but we’ll just take it from week-to-week. We’ve still got two more games to go and just keep evaluating it through the process.”
