The Minnesota Vikings didn’t play on Monday night but they still saw their odds to be the primary seed improve because the Commanders beat the Philadelphia Eagles by a rating of 32-21.
The sport itself was mostly controlled by the Commanders. They forced the Eagles to show the ball over 3 times and Commanders quarterback Taylor Heinicke forced an unnecessary roughness penalty after dropping to each knees on a critical fourth down contained in the two-minute warning.
The loss by the Eagles puts the Vikings in a tie for first place within the NFC and although the Vikings lose the tiebreaker, it puts them in a greater spot to potentially get the illustrious top seed and a first-round bye.
Vikings cornerback Akayleb Evans even took to Twitter to thank the Commanders for pulling out the victory,
