The Philadelphia Eagles defeat the Jacksonville Jaguars 29-21 and remain the NFL’s lone unbeaten team at 4-0.
Ex-Eagles Head Coach coach Doug Pederson and the Jacksonville Jaguars blazed to a 14-0 lead. The Eagles second quarter magic remained in this game. The offense scored three rushing touchdowns on route to 20-14 halftime lead. The Eagles racked 112 yards on 25 rushes in the first half, despite being down starting LT Jordan Mailata. Mailata left in the first quarter, due to a shoulder injury.
RB Miles Sanders led Eagles offense with 134 yards rushing and two touchdowns. He led a running attack, which gained 213 yards on the ground in the less-than-ideal conditions. QB Jalen Hurts and RB Kenny Gainwell each had rushing touchdowns.
LB Haason Reddick had a huge day with two strip-sack fumbles. The Eagles forced five takeaways and had three sacks on the day. CB James Bradberry had a interception against Jags QB Trevor Lawrence.
Eagles QB Jalen Hurts threw for 204 yards and WR A.J. Brown had 5 catches for 95 yards. Hurts overcame an awful interception and looked like the QB we saw through three weeks, making decisive throws that were largely on-point and completely flushing the bad play from his mind. You need a QB with a short memory when it comes to turnovers. Hurts continues to play well and has made tremendous strides from last year.
The Eagles head to Arizona to face the Cardinals next Sunday.
