Extra Points: Dave Weinberg’s Eagles-Lions 2-minute drill
By DAVID WEINBERG
Eagles' best number: 155 (A.J. Brown's receiving yards)
Eagles' worst number: 144 (D'Andre Swift's rushing yards)
View from my living room:
I got to my recliner a little late after playing in the Cape May National Club Championships. Let's just say the Eagles had a better day than me.
1. Eagles quarterback Jaylen Hurts (333 combined yards from scrimmage)
2. Lions running back D'Andre Swift (144 rushing yards and a TD on 15 carries)
3. Eagles wide receiver A.J. Brown (tied his career high with 155 receiving yards)
Eagles' best play
Brown showed his potential as a game-breaker by hauling in a 54-yard pass from Hurts.
Eagles' worst play
The defense needs a lot of work. Swift broke loose for a 50-yard run.
The Eagles nearly wasted a big lead, but were able to hang on when Hurts picked up a first down on a fourth-down sneak with under a minute to play.
