Vikings vs Eagles: Philly Looks To Extend Five Game Win Streak
Which team is the hottest club in the National Football League heading in Week 15 action? If you said Philadelphia – you are correct.

This NFC clash is scheduled for 1:00 PM ET on Sunday, December 15, 2013, from Mall of America Field in Minneapolis, MN. War Eagles!
Philadelphia Eagles: Top NFC East team – despite rough start
After opening the 2013 NFL season with a 3-5 record many pundits wrote off the first year of the Chip Kelly era in Philadelphia as a disaster. Coming over from Oregon and bringing the Ducks high tempo offense to the NFL didn’t work out very well in the early going for the Eagles rookie head coach. However, since Nick Foles took over as the starting quarterback in Philly, the Eagles have won five straight games by a 158-90 combined count. During Week 14 action, in a driving snow storm, the Iggles posted 28 fourth quarter points in a 34-20 win over the Detroit Lions.
Minnesota Vikings: In a tight battle for first pick in the 2014 NFL Draft
After falling out of playoff contention early, the Vikings opened NFL 2013 with a 1-7 record, Minnesota (3-10) failed to follow up on their Wild Card postseason appearance and 10-6 record from a year ago. The Vikings are now in a tight “battle” with the Texans, Falcons and Redskins for the first pick in the 2014 NFL Draft in April. Houston leads that race with two wins while the other three teams have three wins each. Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart are both listed as questionable for this contest. If either running back plays – he will be far less than 100% healthy.
