Jalen Hurts ran for 157 yards to set an Eagles record for a quarterback in the Philadelphia Eagles 40-33 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night.
Hurts also threw for 153 yards and two touchdowns for the NFC-best Eagles, who moved to 10-1 for the fifth time in history. Miles Sanders ran for 143 yards and two scores as the Eagles rushed for 363 overall, the second-best total for the franchise.
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers suffered an oblique injury and left in the third quarter with his team trailing 34-23 after grimacing his way through a drive that led to a Packers field goal.
Rodgers’ replacement, Jordan Love, kept the Packers (4-8) in the game by connecting with Christian Watson for a 63-yard catch-and-run touchdown that cut Philly’s lead to 37-30.
Jalen Hurts had 254 combined yards, including 126 on the ground, and threw a TD pass in the first half as the Eagles built a 27-20 lead. He ripped off runs of 42, 28 and 24 yards.
In the second half, he hit A.J. Brown for a 6-yard TD pass and a 34-20 lead that just added to his staggering numbers on one of the great nights ever for an Eagles QB.
The Eagles host the Tennessee Titans next Sunday.
