Revenge is a dish best served cold… or twice… or both… The Philadelphia Eagles opened the second quarter of their Week 13 tilt dead even at 7-7 on the scoreboard with the visiting Tennessee Titans. Jalen Hurts and A.J. Brown quickly took care of that.
Philly’s star QB1 went deep down the right sideline and connected with his best bud for a 41-yard score. Unfortunately, A.J.’s right toe landed on the sideline, so following a review, the pass was incomplete. No biggie. That just delayed the inevitable.
A.J. Brown is putting in work versus the Titans in Week 13.
We haven’t checked out what NFL Next Gen Stats has to say on the matter, but we can’t think of any time when a 41-yard TD was called back but led to a 41-yard score later.
Following a bit of a letdown, and again on second and 15, Hurts dropped back and hit A.J. Brown again. Number 11 did the rest and housed one. It may not have been as pretty as the first, but it still counts as six points on the scoreboard.
Take a look.
We’ve been told all week that this is ‘just another game’ for A.J. Brown. Clearly, this isn’t that. We advised you ahead of this one to take the OVER on his expected receiving yards total (80.5). Hopefully, you took our advice.
To make long stories shorter, Number 11 is putting in work versus his former team, but if you’re like the rest of us, you were already well aware that something like this would happen.
Update: A.J. Brown is back in the end zone again!
The Titans could have triple-teamed him on that one. There was no way he wasn’t coming down with the ball.
