vikings 28-24 Philadelphia Eagles

Eagles remain undefeated

PHILADELPHIA (AP), Jalen Hurts caught a pair of touchdowns on 1-yard carries and threw a 63-yard pass to DeVonta Smith for another touchdown as the Philadelphia Eagles beat the turnover-prone Minnesota Vikings 34-28 on Thursday.

D'Andre Swift rushed for 175 yards and a touchdown for the defending National Conference champion Eagles, who barely held on to the lead.

Hurts, the second-highest vote-getter for the Most Valuable Player award, overcame a poor passing performance in the first half to wake up the crowd when he connected on a delivery to Smith to make the score 27-7 in the second quarter.
