Vikings coach Mike Zimmer met with reporters on Wednesday, including KSTP Sports, and he broke down Sunday's opponent, Philadelphia.

The Eagles, like the Vikings, are 3-2, and are coming to U.S. Bank Stadium for the first time since winning the Super Bowl there in February 2018.


Philadelphia owns the No. 1 ranked rushing defense, and on offense rank 7th in the NFL in points per game (28.2), and have produced the 2nd-best third-down offense in the NFL.

Zimmer also touched on offensive linemen Pat Elflein and Garrett Bradbury, how loosey-goosey QB Kirk Cousins played in the win over the Giants, and more.

The Vikings return home after two straight road games. RB Dalvin Cook is 2nd in the NFL is rushing yards (542) and their defense is allowing the fourth fewest yards per game (292.4) and the fifth fewest points per game (14.6).
