Inside the Birds: Old-school W over the Pack
Behind monster efforts from Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders, two pivotal turnovers created and the anticipated return of Alshon Jeffery, the Eagles marched into Lambeau Field on Thursday night and toppled the Green Bay Packers, 34-27.
Sanders and Howard steamrolled the Packers' defensive front, combining for 159 yards on 26 carries, with Howard scoring three touchdowns, including a go-ahead 2-yard TD run in the fourth that gave the Eagles the lead for good. The Eagles averaged 5.3 yards per carry against the Packers as coach Doug Pederson leaned heavy on his two-tight end formations to springboard the rushing attack.
Nigel Bradham picked off Aaron Rodgers to the end the game after backup corner Craig James got his hands on the ball before Bradham plucked it from mid-air.
