The Philadelphia Eagles are trying to stay ahead of the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC East with a win over the Minnesota Vikings. Currently they’re one game ahead of the Cowboys, and they need to win out to stay ahead of the Cowboys, because the two teams play in the season finale.
“The biggest thing we stress each week is whatever opponent that we have, let’s just be 1-0 that week,” running back LeSean McCoy told the team’s official website. “We’re not looking down the line to the Cowboys game or (what our record is). We just want to keep winning and control our own destiny.”
“We’re just a one-week operation, so I literally was thinking about the Vikings game running off the field (last) Sunday,” coach Chip Kelly said. “It’s, ‘What’s our next opportunity to go out and see where we are as a team?’ and that’s what this deal is all about. The teams that are mentally tough can work their way through it, and I think we have a mentally tough group.”
