By the numbers: Key stats from Vikings-Eagles


The NFL world is still buzzing about the Vikings' "improbable" 48-30 win over the Philadelphia Sunday at the Metrodome, and for good reason: No one in their right mind would have thought the woeful Vikings would halt the soaring Eagles.

But that, as the cliche goes, why they play the games. Here are some key stats that add up to one victory that all in VikingLand should feel good about:


Quarterback rating for Minnesota's Matt Cassel, who had 382 yards and two touchdowns in the air, and ran for one himself.


Touchdowns for third-string running back Matt Asiata, who spelled the injured Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart with 30 rushes and three receptions.


Receptions by Greg Jennings for 163 yards and a touchdown.


Time of possession for the Vikings, while the Eagles only had the ball for 23:34.
