Our Eagles vs. Vikings predictions for Week 2 of the NFL season

Our Eagles vs. Vikings predictions for Week 2 of the NFL season originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia

The Eagles (1-0) will host the Vikings (0-1) in the 2023 home opener at Lincoln Financial Field on Thursday Night Football.

To the predictions:

Reuben Frank (1-0)

It’s hard not to have concerns about the Eagles after the opener. What’s the back seven going to look like with all the injuries and lack of depth? Will Brian Johnson find a way to get Jalen Hurts into a rhythm? Can Hurts handle the constant blitzes he’ll see? Can the Eagles’ move the ball consistently against a Vikings defense that allowed only 242 yards in its season-opening loss to the Buccaneers? Can the Eagles generate more consistent pressure Thursday night on Kirk Cousins than they did Sunday on Mac Jones? Can the Eagles hold up physically on a short week? Can special teams go a week without a major breakdown? A lot of concerns, a lot of questions. But the bottom line is that despite the injuries and question marks, the Eagles are just a better team than the Vikings, and I’m confident they’ll shake off their rust and play much better Thursday than they did in the opener.

Eagles 33, Vikings 23

Dave Zangaro (1-0)

The Eagles didn’t suffer any season-ending injuries in Week 1 but they certainly got banged up. Nakobe Dean is on IR and they’ll also be without James Bradberry, Reed Blankenship and Kenny Gainwell in this game. Missing four starters isn’t ideal and those three on defense will hurt. The Vikings have a pretty good passing attack with Justin Jefferson, T.J. Hockenson and more. But Kirk Cousins never seems to perform all that well in primetime and he’s missing his center. This Vikings’ offensive line isn’t great and the Eagles’ defensive tackle rotation has a chance to disrupt this game from the first snap. If they don’t, then things could get a little dicey with the Eagles’ patchwork defense at a couple positions. But my guess is the pass rush does get home…
