Philadelphia Eagles defender Jalen Hurts led his team through minnesota vikings on Monday Night Football at Lincoln Financial Field, rushing for two touchdowns and throwing another.
Hurts, 24, threw for 333 yards on 26 of 31 completions and rushed for 57 yards on 11 carries.
One of the shortcomings of his winning night was an interception, but otherwise Hurts had a brilliant game.
Despite neither team scoring in the final half and the bulk of the points coming in the second quarter, there was plenty of action.
In the third quarter, Eagles cornerback Darius Slay defeated Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins to passed the ball Philadelphia 76ers guard James Harden.
Darius Slay vs. Justin Jefferson
Sleigh, 31, ended the evening with two interceptions and completely blocked the Vikings wide receiver. Justin Jefferson.
Jefferson, 23, is arguably the best wide receiver in the league, and Slay managed to tame him.
In the six head-to-head matches between the two, Slay allowed Jefferson only one catch, received two INTs, and dropped three passes.
It was one of the best performances by an Eagles defenseman in recent history.
The win puts the Eagles 2-0 ahead of next Sunday’s game against Washington commandersand the vikings will try to return more than 0.500 by defeating Detroit Lions.
