Stephen Nover's NFL Monday Night Blockbuster
(NFL) Minnesota vs. Philadelphia, 09/19/2022 8:30 PM, Score: 7 - 24
Money Line: -132.00 Philadelphia (Home)
Result: Win
Both teams look improved. But there's a class difference in the trenches that make the Eagles the superior team. I also like Jalen Hurts better than Kirk Cousins. Philadelphia has home field advantage, too.

Hurts is close to being a top-10 quarterback - if he isn't already - given his mobility and addition of A.J. Brown to go with two speedy running backs, DeVonta Smith and Dallas Goedert, one of the better tight ends in the league. The Eagles may have the best offensive line in football.

The Vikings have Justin Jefferson and Dalvin Cook to prop up glorified game manager Cousins. Minnesota's offensive line, though, is not nearly the caliber of the Eagles' offensive line.

The Eagles also upgraded their defense, drafting stud defensive tackle Jordan Davis and signing Haason Reddick, James Bradberry and Kyzir White. The Lions had trouble running last week when Davis was on the field. Reddick is one of the top pass rushers and Bradberry an elite cornerback.
