Minnesota Vikings Slowing down Carson Wentz was Key to Sunday’s Victory


MINNESOTA VIKINGS: Focus on slowing Wentz from the start. Carson Wentz hasn’t precisely been Mr. First Quarter this season, posting a 54.4 passer score in the first 15 minutes and a 102.3 rating thereafter.

So how does the Vikings defense extend that trend and get after the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback early Sunday at U.S. Bank Arena?

” Like we do any other week,” safety Anthony Harris informed me Thursday. “Try to provide him various looks pre-snap, see if we can make his job a bit more difficult as far as knowing what coverage we remain in and make him figure it out, and then attempt to keep tight protection, make him throw in some tight windows and after that try to go hand-in-hand with the rush too to try to be efficient. Pressing him, get into his feet, attempt to make him anxious in the pocket and then making those windows tight to include.”

It worked when the teams fulfilled in Week 5 last season. The Eagles’ first 2 drives netted a combined minus-4 lawns, and both of Wentz’s goal passes came in the fourth quarter of a 23-21 Vikings win.
