View from my living room:
We had a great time celebrating Thanksgiving Thursday, though I have to admit it just wasn't the same without the Anchor Bowl. It's truly a shame that some schools are ending their Thanksgiving rivalry games.
1. Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (157 rushing yards were the most ever for an Eagles' quarterback)
2. Eagles running back Miles Sanders (143 rushing yards and two touchdowns)
3. Packers running back A.J. Dillon (64 rushing yards and a touchdown on 8 carries)
Eagles' best play
Hurts broke loose for several long runs, including a 42-yarder that set up the Eagles' third touchdown.
Eagles' worst play
Wide receiver A.J. Brown coughed up a fumble for the second time in as many games. Packers linebacker Quay Walker recovered it and returned it 63 yards.
Jake Elliott hit a 54-yard field goal with about two minutes left in regulation that gave the Eagles a 10-point lead.
