Eagles Visit Vikings and Peterson Sunday

Donovan McNabb and the Eagles will be on the road in Week Eight to battle the Vikings at the Metrodome.  Both teams are 2-and-4 and are coming off of tough losses in Week Seven.  The Eagles were leading the Bears by four points with under two minutes to go, but allowed Chicago to drive 97 yards and score the game-winning touchdown with nine seconds remaining.  Brian Westbrook returned to the lineup for the Eagles and rushed for 79 yards in defeat.  The Vikings had a field goal blocked and returned for the go-ahead touchdown in a 24-14 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Texas.  Rookie Adrian Peterson ran for 63 yards and score and Tarvaris Jackson completed just six passes for 72 yards as Minnesota lost for the fourth time in five games.  The last time these two teams met, the Eagles beat the Vikings 27-14 in the 2004 NFC Divisional Playoffs.
