Eagles vs. Vikings 2013 Week 15 Flash Video: The REAL Vikings

New, comments

For the context behind this week's flash video, read this column:

It all started with a book discovered by former Philadelphia Eagles fullback Owen Schmitt. The subject: The Berserkers, a group of Norsemen who were said to fight with an animalistic ferocity. Schmitt told his teammates about them, particularly the offensive linemen. Next thing you knew, as Pete Townshend once wrote, the beards had all grown longer overnight. Right tackle Todd Herremans sported a Berserker-inspired topknot for a little while there. With the Eagles going to the land of those other Vikings – they play in Minnesota on Sunday – center Jason Kelce was quick to make the distinction. He and his hirsute linemates are not emulating mere Vikings here.

The Eagles take on the Vikings at 1 PM EST on Sunday in Minnesota.
