Footbal: Webb-led Vikings upset Eagles Tuesday night

-A A +A
By Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Written off by nearly everyone, the Minnesota Vikings wouldn't let two extra days sitting around a hotel bring them down.

After all they've been through this season, it may have given them extra motivation.

Rookie Joe Webb threw for 195 yards and ran for a touchdown in his first career start filling in for an injured Brett Favre, and the lowly Vikings stunned Michael Vick and the NFC East champion Philadelphia Eagles 24-14 in the NFL's first Tuesday game since 1946.

"I think this was a big win because it was a national game," defensive end Jared Allen said. "We wanted to let people know that we are still here to play even though we went through a rough patch. It has been a crazy season and after the last two days and all we went through, this was a nice win."

Adrian Peterson ran for 118 yards and a score, helping the 14-point underdogs knock Philadelphia out of contention for a first-round playoff bye.

The Eagles (10-5) could've secured a bye with victories over the Vikings (6-9) and against Dallas on Sunday coupled with a loss by either Chicago or Atlanta this weekend.
