Eagles running back Jay Ajayi has torn ACL

"I think after the performance last week, they wanted to get back to doing things".

The Eagles, toasted as conquering heroes after beating New England in the Super Bowl eight months ago, were getting booed by the home crowd Sunday. Either way, this is not a well-run machine on offense or defense. "The game plan is giving them a chance". If the Eagles missed one, they were likely - by simple math - to convert the other (assuming they held the Vikings and scored a second touchdown) because that's how math and percentages work. Costly penalties stalled drives.

Along with Wentz's fumble that led to a Vikings' score, the Eagles had numerous self-inflicted mistakes throughout the game. "Obviously, we kind of have some ebbs and flows as an offense - slow start, seemed like we got some momentum, hurt ourselves again".

Barr played well, and more to the point, played from the position on the field he has the experience and skill for.

"I thought he made some unbelievable throws", Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. "If I remember correctly, we had maybe three carries at the end of the first quarter", Ajayi told reporters after the loss. I'll bite the bullet. "There are no excuses and will put it all on me". Last season, Carson Wentz was flawless on his quarterback sneak attempts and that seemed like an obvious call given the situation. Johnson was beaten badly on Wentz's fumble that went for a touchdown. "But we have to clean it up".

"I don't think the fight is the issue", Safety Malcolm Jenkins stated.

"Finish every block, finish every tackle, finish every play, and finish the damn game". "For him to make that kick is really why we brought him here". "Those little mistakes that sometimes can get overlooked are just killing us". "We all know who those players are".

Lane Johnson's struggles continue. Fans booed the team heading into the locker room trailing 17-3 at the half. Scoring early coupled with the ability to stop the run by the defense made opponents predictable and one-dimensional.

The Eagles have a total of 12 sacks in their first five games, which is tied for 16th in the NFL. "It is a big test for us". "So, there's no surprise to his success this season and we're going to keep it going".

"We're just exhausted of hearing it every game", Wendell Smallwood said of the mistakes. "The veteran team that we have, I am confident we'll fix it".

The Eagles announced Sunday that they placed Ajayi on injured reserve with a knee injury. They visit the New York Giants Thursday night.

The fastest and surest fix would be for Wentz to finish shaking off any lingering rust. Graham later took down Roc Thomas for a 2-yard loss at the Eagles 4, helping forcing a third-quarter field goal. "We can't lose any more games, so we have to get on the road right here". "This is definitely not where we want to be. But unless we play better than this, we are not".

Both teams needed a victory.

The Eagles finished with 81 rushing yards on 17 rushing attempts, and the team averaged 4.8 yards per carry.
