The Eagles and Vikings were both winners on the first weekend of the regular season and we’ll have a defensive back from each team with us on Tuesday’s edition of PFT Live to discuss how they were able to wind up on the right side of the final score.

Eagles cornerback Brandon Boykin will join Mike Florio to discuss Philly’s 34-17 victory over the Jaguars. They’ll talk about the Jags racing out to a 17-0 lead, the adjustments the Eagles made to get back into the game and what the team needs to work on to ensure that they aren’t digging themselves out of those holes every week.

The Vikings had no need for dramatic comebacks against the hapless Rams. They won in a 34-6 romp that was fueled by a strong defensive performance. Safety Harrison Smith played a big role in that performance as he had a sack and an 81-yard interception return for a touchdown as Minnesota won in Mike Zimmer’s first game as the team’s head coach.
