Eagles Defeat Indianapolis In Nail Biter

The Philadelphia Eagles beat the Indianapolis Colts 17-16 on Sunday, but it took a late touchdown from quarterback Jalen Hurts to do it. NBC Sports reports Hurts ran for 87 yards, including the go-ahead 7-yard touchdown with 1:20 left. The Eagles trailed 13-3 early in the fourth quarter, but a 22-yard touchdown pass from Hurts to Quez Watkins made it 13-10 with 4:37 left. The Eagles went down the field, but everything came down to one play, the fourth down from the 9. Hurts ran the ball up the middle, and the Eagles kept the drive going. But everything came down to one play, the fourth down from the 9. The Colts didn't convert and the Eagles could finally exhale as they improved to 9-1. The Eagles desperately needed strong play from their two newest players, defensive tackles Linval Joseph and Ndamukong Suh. They played often and effectively. They even combined on a sack in the third quarter. The Eagles trailed 13-3 before Quez Watkins scored on a 22-yard touchdown pass from Hurts early in the fourth quarter. That made it 13-10. The Eagles had one more chance, thanks to Haason Reddick's sack on Matt Ryan on 3rd-and-goal from the 5. That forced a 37-yard field goal and kept the Eagles within a touchdown with 4:37 left. And the Eagles went down the field.
