EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- As the last team in the NFL to lose this season, the Minnesota Vikings had played well enough to keep their weaknesses mostly hidden.Their post-bye trip to Philadelphia was not only a performance failure, but an exposure of their flaws.Pass blocking was the biggest problem in a 21-10 defeat by the Eagles on Sunday afternoon , as Sam Bradford lost two of his four fumbles and threw an interception behind a leaky patchwork line that didnt get much help from the rest of the offense but was thoroughly outplayed by their opponents.Bradford took six sacks and was hit 12 times by his former team that used insider knowledge toward a crafty strategy by defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz that called for a well-disguised series of blitzes out of zone coverages.Now Sam is throwing into a defense where people are looking at him and have people have eyes on the football, Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said. Its a little tougher to see where those are coming from.Jenkins cited experience facing Bradford in practice last year and training camp this summer in concluding he prefers to throw to the outside of the field when the rush comes. Taking advantage of injury replacements for the Vikings at both tackle spots, the Eagles applied plenty of pressure off the ends of the formation. Schwartz drew raves from his players afterward about the game plan.He was really kind of a step ahead of what they were doing every series, defensive end Connor Barwin said.The Vikings (5-1) had no trouble admitting defeat in by far their worst game of the season. They werent quite willing to acknowledge being outsmarted.The Eagles have a good football team and a good defense, tight end Kyle Rudolph said, but you can only shoot yourself in the foot so many times.Coach Mike Zimmer lit into his team, particularly the offensive line, in blunt, stern postgame remarks that garnered plenty of national attention. Having newcomer Jake Long rotate in a bit at both tackle spots for T.J. Clemmings and Jeremiah Sirles didnt help.The expectedly rusty Long, who over the last two calendar years had played only 11 regular-season snaps because of knee trouble, was twice beaten for sacks that forced lost fumbles, including a whiff against blitzing safety Rodney McLeod late in the second quarter after the Vikings had reached field goal range. Including the fourth-and-1 run that was stuffed at the 6-yard line early in the fourth quarter, the Vikings turned the ball over three more times inside the 20.The book on beating the Vikings this year was always going to be building a healthy lead in the first half, minimizing turnovers against their dominant defense and overwhelming the offensive line with a pass rush that knocks Bradford out of rhythm. Thanks to the Eagles, that book became a best-seller on Sunday.The defense forced four turnovers and allowed only 239 yards, and the Vikings still lost by 11 points.Were trying to figure out everything right now, Zimmer said, promising changes this week without specifying whether he meant the lineup, the game plan, the practice routine or all of the above. This is a gut-check day.Zimmer, recalling the lopsided loss in last years opener at San Francisco, wasnt worried his teams ability to bounce back.Im kind of glad it happened to us, just to get hit in the mouth early in the year for once, wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson said. Sometimes you need that. Things will get better.The Vikings play at Chicago on Monday night, giving them an extra day to address the deficiencies and mistakes.Confidence? I dont know. But I do have faith in this football team and obviously, you know, faith is belief without proof, Zimmer said. Right now, I dont have any proof so I have to have faith that well get it done. I think we will. But until we prove it, its just throwing stuff against the wall.---AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL coverage on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Adidas Nmd Deutschland .

INDIANAPOLIS -- Paul George did what the three-time All-Star does best.He scored a season-high 37 points, including 13 straight in the fourth quarter, to lead the Indiana Pacers over the Portland Trail Blazers 118-111 on Saturday night.Thats the Paul George we are accustomed to, forward Myles Turner said. It was good to see him find that groove.George missed the game at Portland on Nov. 30 when the Pacers lost 131-109, and because of injuries and a five-game trip out West, he hadnt even played at home in more than two weeks.George made up for lost time, putting on a show with five 3-pointers and the fourth-quarter rally in his first game back at Bankers Life Fieldhouse since Nov. 23. Thaddeus Young hit a career-high six 3s while getting 24 points and nine rebounds, and Turner added 14 points for the Pacers, who had lost five straight regular season games to Portland.I thought Thaddeus was the biggest player of us all tonight, George said. I was the one who was there late in the game, but he was the one who kept us in the game.C.J. McCollum made a career-high seven 3-pointers and had a season-best 34 points for the Trail Blazers. Damian Lillard had 33 points behind five 3s.George scored 13 straight points in the fourth quarter for Indiana. He was fouled on the go-ahead basket with 4:36 remaining and completed the three-point play to give the Pacers a 108-105 lead.Indiana didnt even take its first lead until Al Jefferson was fouled on a basket and made the bonus free throw to put the Pacers ahead for the first time 99-98 with 8:34 left in the fourth quarter. Then McCollum scored seven straight points to give the Trail Blazers the lead again before George took over.The Pacers trailed by 20 points after Portland didnt waste much tiime taking a lead right from the start.ddddddddddddLillard, who scored 28 points in Portlands win over Indiana on Nov. 30, had a big first quarter with 19 points and five 3-pointers.Its the same thing, Lillard said. We start off the game well and we build a lead, but we know the other team is going to make a run. Were just not getting it done.He made back-to-back 3s to put the Trail Blazers ahead 26-11 with 5:59 remaining in the first, and McCollums 3-pointer with 8:09 left in the second quarter gave the Trail Blazers a 58-38 lead.George made back-to-back 3-pointers with under a minute to go in the first half. His 3 with 25.3 second remaining put the Pacers within seven to trail 71-64 at the half.3-POINT SHOOTOUTPortland finished with 16 3-pointers -- just one shy of tying their season best. It became a 3-point shootout during different stretches throughout the game. McCollum made one in the third quarter to put Portland ahead 82-73, but George answered with a 3 before McCollum made another. Young scored three 3s during a stretch in the third to cut the deficit to six.TIP-INSTrail Blazers: Their 44 points in the first quarter were the most Portland has scored in a quarter this season and the 13 points in the fourth was the fewest scored in a quarter. ...
