The Eagles bounce back thanks to a 31-17 masterful performance versus the Dolphins on Sunday Night Football.
The two-game losing streak to the Miami Dolphins is over. Ahead of the Philadelphia Eagles' Week 7 prime time showdown, the thoughts and theories ranged from everything like whether or not the Birds could hang with the Fins to discussions about why they chose THIS GAME to bring back the iconic kelly green look.
As it turns out, Sunday Night Football felt like Christmas had been moved from December 25th to October 22nd. There were rough spots, but every Birds fan went home and laid head to pillow with smiles on their faces.
Philly more than doubled the Dolphins' first-down total (26 first downs for the Birds compared to just 12 for the Fins). Jalen Hurts completed 23 of 31 passes. 279 yards and two TD passes were the result.
QB1 also tossed an interception (more on that in a second). Hurts' QBR was 75.5 compared to 44 for Tua Tagovailoa, His rating was 109.5. Tua's topped out at 87.5. Hurts also scored six points with his legs by way of The Brotherly Shove. There's reason for the Eagles and their fans to be proud after this one.
Let's get into the good, bad, and ugly.
