The Eagles got a much-needed win at home on Sunday, stifling the Minnesota Vikings for four quarters and sacking old friend Sam Bradford six times — with four fumbles — on the way to a 21-10 victory. At 4-2 and with a date against the Cowboys next Sunday night, the Eagles are in good shape to reseat themselves at the front of the pack in the NFC East.

For Eagles fans, it was a strange game to weigh out the pros and cons of the Bradford trade (one he requested, let's not forget). Statistically, Carson Wentz had a bumpy but efficient game, throwing 16/28 for 138 yards and a touchdown. He also threw two picks, bringing his total to three on the year against eight touchdowns.
But when it comes to vindicating Bradford's ticket out of town, all Eagles fans needed to see was a win. Here's what Twitter had to say about Bradford's bruising return to Philly.
