The Philadelphia Eagles took down the Tennessee Titans in an electrifying win led by Jalen Hurts and A.J. Brown. A highly-anticipated matchup between the two teams did not disappoint Eagles fans. Titans fans, on the other hand, were not quite as fortunate.
Jalen Hurts had one of the best games in his career, taking advantage of the Titans’ poor passing defense. In just 39 passing attempts, Hurts recorded 380 yards, three passing touchdowns, and one rushing touchdown. How’s that for a running back?
In his last two games, Hurts has had over 700 total yards, six touchdowns, and no turnovers. Hurts was near-perfect against the Titans despite one or two poor throws. On passing attempts over 10 yards, Hurts went 6-for-11 and scored each of his three passing touchdowns. While he certainly had a lot of help today from his receivers, he was decisive, smart with the ball, and very accurate, as he completed 74% of his passes. This game will be one to remember for the Eagles’ QB1.
Everybody knew coming into this game that Brown was looking for his revenge against the Tennessee Titans. Coming off a rough three-game stretch, Brown was also looking to have a bounce-back game. Playing his former team for the first time in his career, he did just that.
Brown had one of the best games of his career, completely dominating the Titans’ secondary. His first 40-yard touchdown of the day would be called back as his toe was just out of bounds. Fortunately for Brown, he capitalized on a 40-yard touchdown the next play. This was just the beginning of a spectacular day for him. His second touchdown was even more impressive, catching the ball off the defender’s back. The throw by Hurts on this play was just as impressive as the catch. Brown finished with eight receptions for 119 yards and two touchdowns. This game was a much-needed confidence booster for Brown and the Eagles, who have had a few close calls over the past few weeks.
What would Swole Batman be without his Ro-, Skinny Batman? While Brown’s performance was outstanding, we can’t let this overshadow Smith’s impressive effort. Before the Hurts to Brown connection was established in this game, Smith was carrying the load to start.
He has been on a very impressive stretch of games, picking up the slack that Brown left behind. In his last three games, Smith has recorded 230 yards and a touchdown that he notched against the Titans. Smith also had a 100-yard game, finishing with five receptions for 106 yards and a touchdown.
The “Batman effect” was on full display in this game as the whole trio dominated.
