After stoning the Eagles on their first series, followed by going three-and-out themselves, the Vikings have allowed the Eagles to go downfield and put a touchdown on the board to take an early lead.
The Vikings had the Eagles in a third-and-long situation, but Michael Vick overthrew Jeremy Maclin on a long pass play. However, Asher Allen was flagged for pass interference on the play, and the Eagles’ drive continued. After a long pass to Maclin that the Vikings probably should have challenged (and did so too late), the Eagles got into the end zone on a three-yard pass from Vick to rookie tight end Clay Harbor in the back of the end zone. Leslie Frazier challenged that play. . .and, predictably, lost the challenge.
Philadelphia’s scoring drive took seven plays to move 50 yards and took 3:34 off of the clock.
With 7:42 left in the first quarter of play, the Vikings trail the Eagles, 7-0.
