In a post on X (formerly known as Twitter), Prime Video Sports PR reported that the Eagles-Vikings contest was “the most-streamed NFL game in history.”
Across all platforms, the game had 16.6 million viewers, which was a 16-percent increase from last year’s Week 2 Thursday night game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers. It also marked the best viewership for a Thursday night game on Prime Video.
This contest featured a matchup between two of the NFC’s top clubs from 2022 (Eagles were 14-3, Viking 13-4), both of whom carry high-powered offenses. The game certainly didn’t lack fireworks, with Philly winning a high scoring affair 34-28.
Minnesota quarterback Kirk Cousins had 31 completions for 364 yards and four touchdowns against Philly’s stingy defense. Superstar wideout Justin Jefferson had another field day, hauling in 11 catches for 159 yards.
While Eagles’ QB Jalen Hurts once again struggled with consistency in the passing game, the Vikings had no answer for Philly’s rushing game. The Eagles rushed for 259 yards and three touchdowns on 48 carries.
Offseason trade pickup D’Andre Swift led the way with 175 yards and one touchdown. Hurts had 12 carries for 35 yards and a pair of rushing scores.
