This game will serve as a rematch of the NFC Championship Game where Nick Foles and the Eagles went on to desecrate the Vikings 38-7. The Eagles went on to win Superbowl 52 against the Patriots two weeks later.
With the Vikings not having Case Keenum any longer, this is a chance for new Minnesota QB Kirk Cousins to show who he is with his new team. However, after the beating that Minnesota took from the Eagles back in January, Eagles fans are optimistic with their chances. The Vikings will also have to see the Eagles have their Superbowl 52 banner raised in a ceremony before the game.
It seems that Minnesota fans haven’t gotten over the blow out they received, taking to Twitter to share their feelings on the season opening match-up and Eagles fans:
Phillies fans just did the Eagles chant at the Twins game. I'm honestly still surprised any of the neanderthal Philly sports fans can spell Eagles. And Fuck off!

Give it a fucking rest already. You won so what. Most annoying fanbase in the NFL. No other fanbase has carried on about winning an nfc championship game more than eagles fans.

I’m starting to hate Eagles fans more than I hate Packers fans and that’s really saying something

The #Vikings lost out to the #Eagles in the Alshon sweepstakes, lost to the Eagles in the NFC Championship, watched the Eagles win the Super Bowl in their stadium, and now will have to watch the us raise our first banner to kick off the season.
