Philadelphia Eagles were manhandled because they took the Vikings too easy

With no Adrian Peterson, no Toby Gerhart and none of the Vikings’ top three cornerbacks, Minnesota beat the NFC East-leading Eagles at home for its most lopsided win of the season. Makes perfect sense, right?

Well, the game might have at least given credence to the idea that Matt Cassel should have been the Vikings’ starting quarterback for much more of the season than he’s been. Cassel threw for 382 yards, helped Greg Jenningscatch a career-high 11 passes and ran for a score. His future in Minnesota as well as the futures of the people who saw fit to keep him on the bench for so much of the season — are bound to be tantalizing topics after this game.

The biggest problem with this game was the fact that the Philadelphia Eagles walked into this game overconfident.  I myself thought there is no way possible the Vikings can win this game.  They truly shocked me and for that I apologize, but come on Eagles you need to win this game.  You did not just let them put up a 40 burger, you let them put up 48, damn near a 50 burger, OUCH!
