What channel is Vikings vs. Eagles on today? Schedule, time for ‘Monday Night Football’ in Week 2

Sports

When the Vikings play the Eagles, you might want to keep your eyes on the pass-catchers.

Lining up at the X for Minnesota will be Justin Jefferson, perhaps the league’s best wide receiver. The spindly Jettas is a superstar in every sense of the word — a touchdown-scoring, griddy-dancing talent who has been dominant in his short career. Jefferson wants 2,000 receiving yards this year. It’s hard to say he can’t hit that mark, especially after he torched Green Bay’s secondary for nearly 200 in Week 1.

Philly has its own star to snag passes out of the air: newcomer A.J. Brown. Brown’s arrival gave Jalen Hurts something he so desperately desired — a true No. 1 option. Brown is certainly being paid like one.

Brown put up 155 receiving yards against the Lions, making easy work of an improved defensive back unit. With his mammoth frame and soft hands, Brown looks well on his way to a career season. That should thrust him into the upper echelon of wideouts, a place Jettas knows very well.

What do you get when you put two of the most talented receivers in football on the field with one another? Fireworks. Expect to see plenty of highlights at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia Monday night.
