Jalen Hurts Has 3 TDs, Eagles Come Back To Beat Washington
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Jalen Hurts ran for two touchdowns and threw for another to help the Philadelphia Eagles come back from an early deficit and beat virus-ravaged Washington 27-17 in a critical showdown with NFC playoff implications.
In his first game back from an ankle injury, Hurts scored on a pair of 1-yard QB sneaks to set the single-season franchise record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback with 10.
He was 20 of 26 for 296 yards passing with a touchdown pass to Greg Ward and a bad-luck interception.
Miles Sanders rushed for a career-high 131 yards.
Washington struggled behind recently signed quarterback Garrett Gilbert and missing a handful of starters.
