Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts had a field day with wide receiver AJ Brown as the NFL’s only undefeated team remained against the Pittsburgh Steelers after a 35-13 win on Sunday.
Philadelphia is now a fun sports city, with the Phillies in the World Series and the Eagles looking like big favorites to compete for a Super Bowl. To keep the vibes strong, Brown did his best to strip the Steelers secondary to pave the way for an easy win.
He needed just six catches to go for 156 yards with his three scores, all in the first half. The first was a 39-yard strike from Hurts on the Eagles’ first drive of the game. Then, after the Steelers killed over seven minutes on the clock to tie the game at 7, Hurts threw one down the right sideline that was perfectly placed for Brown to pick it up in the air.

But the best play of the day was Brown’s third touchdown while on a double team and still walked away with the score. It was a 29-yard strike from Hurts, and Brown bounced two defenders off him for the score, and he made sure to point both in shame.
Hurts would go for 285 yards with four touchdowns — he found Zach Pascal on the first drive of the second half for a 34-yard touchdown — as he continues to defend the MVP title.
On the ground, Miles Sanders led the way with 78 yards on nine carries and a touchdown.

For the Steelers, there wasn’t much to like about rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett’s offensive side. He had 191 yards on 25 for 38 without a touchdown and his interception on the Steelers’ final drive of the game.
A pivotal moment also came during a practice towards the end of the third quarter. Pittsburgh was down 15 points, but they were getting positive plays left and right to get into Philly territory. However, Javon Hargrave had a backpack on Pickett that was picked up and led to a touchdown just two plays later: Hurts found Brown for 43 yards followed by Sanders’ touchdown.

Najee Harris continues to struggle in the running game for the Steelers, rushing for 32 yards on eight carries. Rookie Jaylen Warren rushed for 50 yards on six carries while Pickett rushed for 37 yards on seven carries.
The Eagles also managed to put Pickett down six times. Hargrave recorded two sacks, while CJ Gardner-Johnson, Marlon Tuipulotu, Milton Williams and Haason Reddick each had one.
Continuing to fly high, the Eagles are on a short week as they take on the Houston Texans on Thursday night.
