With a commanding 24-7 win against the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football in their home opener at Lincoln Financial Field, the Eagles made a statement in prime time.
The Eagles provided plenty of reasons for supporters to cheer as quarterback Jalen Hurts displayed brilliance, completing 26 of his 31 passes for 333 yards.
He established a new career high by making his first 11 pass attempts in the game. Hurts scored twice rushing, added 57 more yards on the ground, and had one touchdown passing (a BOMB for 53 yards to Quez Watkins).
The defence upheld its end of the agreement by keeping the Vikings scoreless in the second half after the Eagles jumped out to a 24-7 halftime lead.
During the country's civil strife in the 1990s, his parents fled Sierra Leone for the United States. They eventually settled in Maryland, where Constant worked on building a youth tennis training facility before taking on maintenance duties there. According to Tiafoe, Alphina was a nurse who "worked two jobs, overtime through the nights." When Tiafoe and his twin brother Franklin were born in 1998, they spent a lot of time with rackets near Dad's workplace.
The Eagles are 2-0 and will play their first NFC East opponent on Sunday at Washington after the defence forced three turnovers, all of which were interceptions by Kirk Cousins. This is how the game progressed:
After receiving the opening kickoff, the Eagles drove 82 yards in 11 plays, with Jalen Hurts caroming through three Vikings defenders for a 3-yard touchdown run, his second of the year.
On the first play from scrimmage, DeVonta Smith received a pass for the first time this year and gained 5 yards. A.J. Brown's first reception as an Eagle at Lincoln Financial Field on third-and-13 for a gain of 19 yards to the Minnesota 10-yard line was the pivotal play of the drive.
