Jay Ajayi: Eagles should have run more vs. Vikes

To their credit, numerous players are owning their mistakes.

The NFL didn't shut down.

The Eagles announced Sunday that they placed Ajayi on injured reserve with a knee injury. It appeared to be a portent of things to come. Mental blunders have cost the team throughout the first five weeks. Dropped passes. Squandered opportunities.

Except replays showed there might not have been much force at all behind Bennett's tackle. Shelton Gibson made a leaping 48-yard reception at the Vikings 17. His early misses behind him, Bailey nailed a 52-yard field goal with 2:51 left in the game to extend the Vikings' lead to 23-14. Wentz was 7 of 11 for 89 yards in the half, and sacked twice for minus-20 yards.

Carson Wentz's overall numbers - a 68.6 completion percentage, 8.9 yards per attempts, 2 touchdowns - were impressive.

Fox Philly analyst Garry Cobb seems to have a solution that may get the Eagles out of their funk. But more mistakes cost them. The Eagles, however, did nothing with the turnover.

Jay Ajayi, the fourth-year running back who had been playing through a transverse fracture in his back, now has a more significant injury: ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Monday evening that Ajayi tore his ACL and is out for the rest of the season.

With four minutes and change left in the game's first half, the Eagles drove to the Vikings' 31 easily on their fourth possession.

This Minnesota Vikings squad has some demons to exorcise. "We can get the bad taste out of our mouth fast and go on the road to New York Thursday night".

Wide receiver Shelton Gibson's nice mid-air adjustment on a 48-yard reception at the Vikings' 19.

Then the second self-inflicted mistake happened early in the third quarter.

After acquiring the running back from the Miami Dolphins in the middle of last season, Ajayi ended up being a key piece on offense for Philadelphia during their epic Super Bowl run, and was arguably the top player in the backfield on the current roster. And on the Vikings' next drive, DeFilippo dialed up one of the team's most successful run calls of the season, when Latavius Murray gained 12 yards on a first-down draw. Smallwood later stretched out for a 2-point conversion to make it 20-14. But another illegal formation penalty followed and Wentz was called for intentional grounding. Vikings linebacker Eric Kendricks recovered the ball.

The Vikings are now crushing the Eagles, 20-3.

The veteran back also fumbled at Minnesota's 5-yard line to end a promising drive in the second half, acknowledging that that result somewhat squanders his argument.

The Philadelphia Eagles suffered two major losses Sunday.

The storm clouds gathering over South Philadelphia contain a silver lining, Eagles coach Doug Pederson contended at his day-after news conference. Mills was facemask-to-facemask with Minnesota receiver Adam Thielen following a pass breakup on third-and-goal.
