The Philadelphia Eagles have a strong start this season. The Eagles have a 2-0 against the Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings. Jalen Hurts had one of his best games last night, and we hope to keep the momentum going this season! Minnesota played a mushy zone designed to counter Hurts specifically, and he (and the play-calling) ate them alive. Just like in 2017, the Minnesota Vikings only mustered a meager 7 points against the Philadelphia Eagles. I have a complete stat breakdown below!

Top 3 Game Moments

Darius Slay intercepts Kirk Cousins in the RedZone and hands the ball off to James Harden!

There are immaculate vibes in the Lincoln Stadium tonight. I am sincerely jealous of everyone there! Giving the ball to Harden was the icing on the cake. I am feeling indescribable feelings towards Philly sports right now!

53-Yard TD Bomb from Hurts to Watkins!

"Jalen Hurts can't throw deep" takers are in shambles. What a great cold open from Jalen Hurts! The roar of the crowd at that moment was tremendous. Go, birds, baby!

Darius "Big Play" Slay gets another INT covering Justin Jefferson

Ladies and gentlemen, your NFC defensive player of the week. Slay has two more catches than Reagor tonight, and so does my Grandma! This is what happens when you blitz. Does Cousins think Slay is a Viking?
