The Vikings have plantly of fresh memories of this week's opponent - the Philadelphia Eagles.  Some bad - the loss in the NFC Championship game two years ago, and some good - last year's win sparked by one of the more memorable touchdowns of the last few seasons.

After a 38-7 loss in Philadelphia in the NFC title game after the 2017 season, the Vikings went back to Philly last October and pulled out a 23-21 win.  The highlight of the game was defensive lineman Linval Joseph's 64-yard fumble return touchdown. After the score, Joseph was shown on camera sitting on the bench wearing sunglasses and taking draws from an oxygen mask.
