Eagles release veteran LB Brown after loss to Vikings

Vikings open as favorites vs. Eagles

Patience was all Diggs needed, as it turned out, to re-establish himself as a prominent receiver for Kirk Cousins and the Vikings.

Sendejo returned the pick to the Eagles 48-yard line with 1 minute, 2 seconds left in the second quarter and quarterback Carson Wentz went to work.

The touchdown gave the Vikings a 17-3 lead.

Just two weeks ago, Diggs' name was attached to trade speculation.

The Philadelphia Eagles released linebacker Zach Brown on Monday, just three days after he made unflattering comments about former teammate Kirk Cousins. He almost threw a third to Diggs in the second quarter but barely missed him deep over the middle. But the Vikings are 29th in passing yards per game (191). While the loss was tough, there are some players who played a solid game, and if they get help moving forward, the Eagles could surely bounce back.

The Vikings have shifted from a pass-heavy offense to a run-oriented attack this season and it has paid off to a degree. Besides, the Eagles would be getting the ball back after halftime. They wouldn't score again. The star wideout hauled in seven catches for 167 yards with three touchdowns in Minnesota's convincing win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Cousins responded the following week by feeding Thielen for a season-high in yards and finding him in the end zone twice.

Per the Philadelphia Inquirer, the second question postgame for Brown was about Cousins and he wasn't happy about it. They've now held all of their first six opponents to 21 points or fewer.

Early in the third quarter, the Eagles announced linebacker Nigel Bradham was questionable to return with an ankle injury. They rushed for over 100 yards against the league's top run defense.
