Game Recap: Eagles 40, Packers33

It was a historic night in Eagles history, as they inducted Trent Cole and Hugh Douglas, both defensive end, into the franchise’s Hall of Fame, and introduced the all-black uniforms.

The Eagles made history on the field as quarterback Jalenhurts set a franchise record with 157 rushing yards. Running back Miles Sanders also set a career-high with 143 yards rushing as Philadelphia beat the Green Bay Packers by 40 yards to 33 to improve their league record to 10-1.

Check out the video below for a detailed recap.

FIRST QUARTER

The Eagles have lost the coin toss for the second consecutive season. The opening kickoff will be given to the Eagles.

Jalen Hurts ran 24 yards to the Eagles 49′ yard line to convert 3rd and 10. Darnell Savage, a Packers defensive back was hurt on the play. Miles Sanders made back-to-back handoffs from shotgun to gain 14 yards and move the chains. Hurts was successful in passing DeVonta Smith to gain 6 yards. All three of Hurts’ attempts to pass to Smith were unsuccessful. Hurts held the ball on a QB drawing and Quez Watkins made a great downfield block that allowed Hurts to gain 28 yards to the Packer’s 6-yard line. Kenneth Gainwell ran up to the middle for 4 yards and a touchdown two plays later.

The eagles lead 7-0 with 11 minutes remaining in the quarter.

Injury Update: Savage is in question after sustaining a foot injury.

The Eagles lined up on 3rd-and-4 with Fletcher Cox at the end and Haason Reddy inside. Javon Hargrave put pressure on Aaron Rodgers in the middle. Rodgers passed the ball to Allen Lazard but Darius Slay got a run on it and kicked it up the air. Josiah Scott made the pick at the Packer’s 35 and returned it 6 yards.

The Eagles increased their lead following the Scott interception. Three plays later, Lane Johnson pulled and Miles Sanders shook Kenny Clark at the line of scrimmage. This resulted in a touchdown of 15 yards. Jake Elliott missed the punt, making it 13-0 with 9 minutes remaining in the first half. With his seventh rushing touchdown, Sanders broke a new career record.

Hurts has 60 yards of rushing, while Sanders has 32.

The Packers returned the ball to the ballgame after a 38-yard kickoff return. Rodgers threw the ball to Aaron Jones, who ran 10 yards. Rodgers hit Jones for 30 yards after a tackle by Fletcher Cox. A.J. Dillon ran up the middle and scored a touchdown of 20 yards. With 6:40 remaining in the first quarter, it’s 13-7.

The Eagles attempted to steal the ball on third-and-1 but were denied. The offense was allowed to continue on the field after 4th down. Sanders won the snap but Hurts didn’t take control. Rasul Douglas touched him for no gain. With five minutes remaining in the quarter, the Packers take control of downs at the Eagles’ 38.

On 3rd-and-8 the Packers went empty. Rodgers attempted to get the first down by screen to Aaron Jones. But T.J. Edwards made a big tackle and only gained a 3-yard gain. On 4th down, the Packers tried to get it. Rodgers hit Christian Watson 21 yards for an Eagles-line gain. C.J. Gardner-Johnson suffered injuries during the tackle attempt. Reed Blankenship was brought in to replace Gardner-Johnson. After the injury, the Packers play-action and Rodgers hit Randall Cobb to the middle for the touchdown. Scott was in coverage. With 3:09 left in the first quarter, the Packers lead 14-13

Eagles employ multi-TE personnel in order to boost the running game. A.J. Hurts are the first to connect. Brown makes the first attempt at a touchdown, connecting for a 23-yard gain to the Eagle’s 47-yard line. Three plays later, on third-and-2, the Eagles bring Cam Jurgens on the field as an additional lineman. Hurts run free from the pocket to run down the right side of the field to the Packer’s 3-yard line, for a gain of 42

The quarter ends with the Eagles leading 14-13. Gardner-Johnson is listed as questionable to be back after suffering a rib injury.

Hurts ran 103 yards in the first quarter.

SECOND QUARTER

Sanders scores his second touchdown on the first play in the second quarter with a 2-yard touchdown run. With 14:54 remaining in the half, the Eagles attempt to connect for the PAT and regain the lead of 20-14.

REED BLANKENSHIP ladies and gentlemen This rookie agent was playing for the injured Gardner Johnson. He made his first career interception when he intercepted a pass meant for Tyler Davis. The Packers used a mixture of run and pass to move the ball, with both backs and tight ends Robert Tonyan involved. For added size, the Eagles used their 5-man front but brought in KyzirWhite mid-drive instead of Josiah Scott. With 11:12 remaining in the half, the Eagles take control at their 22.

Rodgers has tonight’s two interceptions and the entire season nine. He had nine interceptions in his previous two seasons (back-to-back MVP campaigns) together.

The Eagles start the drive with a chunk of play. Smith passes Hurts to Smith on an excellent comeback route for a 17-yard gain. Hurts gained 17 more yards with a QB draw, and the Eagles added 15 more yards when Packers safety Adrian Amos dived at Lane Johnson’s knees, drawing the attention of Nick Sirianni. The drive was stopped abruptly by wide receiver A.J. Brown lost the ball at the Packers’ 24-yard line. With 8:37 remaining in the half, Rudy Ford, a former Eagle, took the ball from Brown and Quay Walker, a rookie linebacker for the Eagles.

The Packers appeared to have regained the lead but Jones’ 13-yard touchdown run was canceled by an Elgton Jenkins holding penal. It didn’t matter. Rodgers found Jones later on a scramble drill at the back of his end zone for a touchdown. Marcus Epps was covering. The Packers failed to score the PAT at the same south end as Elliott in the first quarter. It’s now 20-20 with 7 minutes remaining in the half.

Arryn Siposs, Eagles’ punter, kicks the first game-winning punt. After linebacker Justin Hollins claimed waivers from the Rams this week, the Eagles’ offensive drive was halted. Hurts were sacked on the second down. Siposs made a great punt to turn the field. The Packers started from their own 18, with 5:48 remaining in the half.
