MINNEAPOLIS -- This is the type of non-scoring drive that can help a team win playoff games.

Philadelphia just moved the ball out from its 5-yard line to yard line to the Vikings' 43-yard line before punting. Although they didn't score, the Eagles held on to the ball for nearly seven minutes and shifted the field position battle back into their favor.

Instead of taking over near midfield, the Vikings now have possession at their 10-yard line. We'll see if this turnaround ends up having an impact on what is now a two-point game.
