The Eagles just defeated the Vikings for the second time in 2018

Minnesota takes another L.

The Philadelphia Eagles have been a big source of misery for Minnesota Vikings fans in 2018.

As if absolutely demolishing the Vikings by a final score of 38 to 7 in the NFC Championship Game wasn’t enough, the Eagles then went on to win the Super Bowl in Minnesota’s home stadium.

That must have been tough for Minnesotans to watch.

Unfortunately for the Vikings, they’re still not done taking losses. Just check out what the Eagles’ official Twitter account did to them on Saturday morning.

That’s new Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins on the right wearing green back in college.

Oh, and the guy on Cousins’ right (our left)? That’s Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles, who completed 26 of his 33 attempts (78.8%) for 352 yards, three touchdowns, zero interceptions, and a 141.4 passer rating against the Vikings’ so-called “No. 1 ranked defense” in the NFC Championship Game.

So, yeah, I really have to disagree with the Vikings’ original tweet here. I’d say wearing green worked out pretty well for the Eagles as they blew out Minnesota and then went on to win the Super Bowl.

The Vikings will be reminded of that very fact when they see the Eagles’ Super Bowl banner hanging from the rafters when Minnesota visits Lincoln Financial Field this season.

If the NFL schedules Eagles versus Vikings for the regular season opener on Thursday night, the Vikings will even have to watch the Eagles’ banner raising ceremony first-hand.
