Eagles run all over Vikings, Jalen Hurts racks up three total touchdowns in victory

The Philadelphia Eagles can beat anyone in a bunch of ways — on Thursday night, they chose the run game.

The Birds ran for 259 yards in their 34-28 victory over the Minnesota Vikings.

The game wound up being high-scoring, but for a brief time, it looked like ugly Thursday night football was back – there were three turnovers and a missed field goal in the first quarter. 

Hockenson scored a late touchdown that affected plenty wallets across the country with the backdoor cover, but now the Vikings were going for the miracle. They didn’t recover the onside kick, but did force a punt. With seven seconds left at their own 17, the hail mary fell way short, and the clock hit triple zeroes. 

Swift totaled 175 yards on 28 carries, while Smith led the Eagles with 131 yards. 

Cousins threw for 364 yards, 159 of them obviously to Justin Jefferson in the losing effort.

The Vikings will look to get their first victory when they host the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 3, while the 2-0 Eagles will face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a Monday night contest the following day.
