Deion Sanders once said: “If you look good, you’ll feel good, and if you feel good, you’ll play well.” » The Eagles looked good Sunday night, wearing Kelly Green jerseys and helmets for their game against the Dolphins.
And their acting perfectly matches their looks.
Philadelphia cruised to a 31-17 win over Miami on “Sunday Night Football,” keeping the Dolphins’ offense off the scoreboard in the second half and playing smart football every step of the way.
The Dolphins quickly rallied from a 17-3 deficit, scored a touchdown just before halftime and found the end zone again in the third quarter when Jerome Baker intercepted a deflected pass from Jalen Hurts to make it six. How Mike McDaniel overcame alcoholism to become a rising NFL coach
The game’s defining sequence came right after a pick-six when Hurts missed a turnover and led a touchdown surgery. After the Eagles’ defense contained Tagovailoa and the Dolphins, the offense engineered a nearly seven-minute touchdown drive to ice the game.
A.J. Brown overcame a slow start and shined for the Eagles, recording 137 yards and a touchdown in the victory. Brown has now had five straight games with at least 125 yards and appears to be on his way to a career-best season.
Hurts, Brown and the Eagles have higher goals than just individual success, and a win over one of the AFC’s best teams is one way to make a statement. Philadelphia improved to 6-1, while the Dolphins missed a chance to take a two-game lead in the AFC East and fell to 5-2 against the Patriots.
