Hours later, we're still buzzing. The adrenaline is still coursing through our bodies. We have barely slept. We have already rewatched the game twice. Things couldn't have gone any better than what we witnessed from the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 7 on Sunday Night Football. They walk out of this one with a statement victory over the AFC East's best team.
We'll be honest. We didn't expect Philly's defense to hold the Miami Dolphins to ten points. We didn't expect the Fins' O to be shut out in the second half. Keep in mind the fact that it was Miami's defense that scored their final TD.
The only setback in this one was we saw Jalen Hurts limping around a little after this one wrapped.
Hopefully, the news will be favorable. Philly needs its QB1, but for now, let's look at some of the Eagles that were the hammer to Miami's nail.
We tip the cap to some of the Eagles that made Sunday Night Football a game to remember.
Heck, no one would complain if we gave everyone game balls, but we'd like to shine the spotlight on some Birds that were fun to watch and most certainly brought their A-game.
1. A.J.. Brown, wide receiver
The numbers speak for themselves... Ten receptions... 137 yards receiving... One receiving TD...
That's his fifth straight game in which he has eclipsed 125 yards receiving. That's certainly an Eagles franchise record. It also ties an NFL record, one he now shares with Pat Studstill and Calvin Johnson.
2. Dallas Goedert, tight end
Philly didn't look in Dallas Goedert's direction much in the second half, but the damage was already done during Philly's first three drives. He set the table nicely to help spearhead a Week 7 win.
He finished with 77 yards receiving and a TD on five receptions. That's how you celebrate National Tight Ends Day!
3. Jalen Hurts, quarterback
It was a tough night for QB1 in spots. He was sacked three times. He lost a fumble. He unfortunately gave up a TD. Hey, that's life. No sweat though... When Jalen Hurts needed to be at his best, he most certainly was.
Hurts finished this one with 23 completions on 31 attempts, 279 yards passing, two passing TDs, a rushing TD, and a 109.5 rating. He also helped convert four fourth-down attempts as the Birds ran The Brotherly Shove to perfection.
4. The entire Eagles defense
What can you say about this performance? Versus what has been the NFL's best offensive attack through the first six weeks, the Eagles defense surrendered 244 yards, 5.1 yards per play, and TEN points.
Darius Slay's interception halted what could have been a game-tying drive. Philly never looked back after that.
Terrell Edmunds led the team in total tackles (nine). Josh Sweat registered a pair of sacks. Nolan Smith introduced the opposing quarterback to the turf for the first time in his career. Kudos to Sean Desai and his defense. It doesn't get any better than this effort!
