Eagles 38, Lions 35


Jalen Hurts accounted for 333 yards and a touchdown, and A. J. Brown had a career-high-tying 155 yards receiving in his Philadelph­ia debut.

The Eagles scored 24 points in the second quarter and had a 17-point lead in the fourth that was cut to three when Jared Goff threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to DJ Chark with 3:51 left.

Philadelph­ia sealed the win with Miles Sanders’s 24-yard run on third and two from the Philadelph­ia 27 just before the twominute warning and Hurts’s sneak that converted a fourth and one from the Detroit 40 with 50 seconds left.

Sanders finished with 96 yards rushing and was one of three Philadelph­ia running backs to score.

The Lions started strong, opening the game with a nineplay, 75-yard touchdown drive and forcing Philadelph­ia to turn it over on downs.

Hurts, though, proved to be tough to stop. He ran 17 times for 90 yards and a one-yard touchdown early in the second quarter.
