Continued: Vikings' three and out: Cassel's back

Running back LeSean McCoy, who leads the NFL in rushing with 1,305 yards, and DeSean Jackson, who is 10th in receiving yards with 1,080, need 222 combined yards to become the most prolific rushing and receiving combination in Eagles history.

The record belongs to running back Ricky Watters (1,411) and receiver Irving Fryar (1,195), who combined for 2,606 yards in 1996. The Eagles lead the league in rushing (158.5 yards per game) but also rank No. 1 in passing plays of 20 or more yards (64). With 400 yards of offense on Sunday, the Eagles would become just the fourth team in league history to post 11 400-yard games in their first 14 games.

“They’re a running football team, no doubt about that,” Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway said. “[Quarterback Nick] Foles has done an excellent job of throwing the ball in his spots and giving his receivers a chance, but they’re definitely trying to give LeSean the ball as much as they can and let him make plays.”
