MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 15 (UPI) -- Matt Asiata ran for three touchdowns and Matt Cassel had a big game with 382 passing yards Sunday, sending the Minnesota Vikings over Philadelphia 48-30.

Asiata picked up the slack for injured running backs Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart as the Vikings (4-9-1) logged a season-high point total against a normally stingy Eagles defense.

Cassel went 26-of-35 through the air with two TDs and an interception.

His favorite target was Greg Jennings, who made 11 grabs for 163 yards and a touchdown.

Nick Foles amassed 428 passing yards with three scoring strikes on 30-of-48 efficiency, but it wasn't enough as Philadelphia (8-6) had its five-game winning streak snapped.

The Eagles came into the day with a 1/2-game lead over Dallas in the NFC East.

DeSean Jackson made 10 catches for 195 yards and a touchdown.
