Hurts Throws For 4 TDs On Injured Knee To Help The Eagles Beat The Commanders And Improve To 7-1


After an early run, Jalen Hurts cautiously made his way back to the huddle, clearly limited by his damaged left knee. Still, he persisted and helped the Philadelphia Eagles win another game.

With three touchdowns from Hurts (two to A.J. Brown), the defending NFC champs defeated the Washington Commanders 38–31 on Sunday. The Eagles moved to 7-1 and provided more proof that they are a Super Bowl contender by coming back from a double-digit deficit, led by their injured franchise quarterback.

“We’re just enjoying the journey,” said Hurts, who did not want to talk about how his knee was feeling. “Obviously, there’s one stop we’d like to make in the end, but it’s just a journey. You have to really embrace the process of it.”

Hurts merely responded, “I’m here,” when questioned about the knee. Though Hurts persevered through the injury to play one of his greatest games of the season, Brown and coach Nick Sirianni were not in a rush to discuss the injury with him.

Hurts, who isn’t usually one to run, completed 29 of 38 attempts, including touchdown passes to Julio Jones and DeVonta Smith. His two tries of seven yards rushing were Hurts’ fewest since December 26, 2021, before he twice went down to kneel to end the game.

Hurts mishandled on one of those rushes, a “Tush Push,” at the Washington 1-yard line. This was the first of two Philadelphia errors inside the 5-yard line. In the first half, Kenneth Gainwell lost a fumble at the 4.

Hurts had a ton of choices to choose from when there wasn’t much action on the ground. Brown was the first player in NFL history to receive more than 125 yards in six straight games. On his first touchdown, Brown made an incredible one-handed catch; on his second, he caught the ball through double coverage.

Philadelphia’s defense rallied late after letting Sam Howell complete 24 passes in the first half. In order to set up D’Andre Swift’s touchdown run, Reed Blankenship intercepted Howell in the fourth quarter. With just over two minutes remaining, Haason Reddick sacked him, the Eagles’ first of the game.

Despite Howell throwing for a career-high 397 yards and four touchdowns behind a redesigned offensive line, Washington (3-5) fell for the sixth time in six games. Top receiver Terry McLaurin had a string of drops that resulted in a turnover on downs late in the game, and coach Ron Rivera chose not to challenge a crucial fourth-down grab by Smith in the third quarter that replays indicated should have been incomplete.

According to Rivera, neither he nor his staff saw the replay of Smith’s catch. McLaurin accepted accountability for failing to secure the ball.
