The Philadelphia Eagles are still undefeated in the NFL

The Philadelphia Eagles are still undefeated in the NFL

The Philadelphia Eagles continue to dominate the NFL regular season. Sunday, during the eighth day, they easily beat the Pittsburgh Steelers (35-13), their neighbor. The Eagles continue their faultless: seven games, seven wins (they were off last week). It is the only team still undefeated this season.

Eagles quarterback and wide receiver Jalen Hurts and AJ Brown put on a festival. The first threw 285 yards and four touchdown passes. The second feasted on these offerings, with 156 yards and three TD’s, all scored in the first period. Philadelphia’s defense also hurt Pittsburgh, inflicting six sacks on Steelers QB Kenny Pickett.

10 minutes from the end of the match, Nick Sirianni, the coach of the Eagles, allowed himself to rotate his workforce, as the success of his team was obvious.

Pollard, McCaffrey and Henry impress

At the level of the score, it is less visible. But the Buffalo Bills also won an easy victory against the Green Bay Packers (27-17). The favorites for the next Super Bowl have won for the sixth time in seven matches this season. At the break, Buffalo was already leading 24-7. The Bills then relaxed, perhaps a little too much, because Josh Allen, their QB, was intercepted twice. But, apart from the runner Aaron Jones (143 yards), Green Bay did not shine and did not benefit from it. The Packers conceded a fourth straight loss.

The Dallas Cowboys were strong, scoring seven touchdowns against Chicago (49-29). The runner Tony Pollard was able to forget Ezekiel Elliott, the holder, absent due to knee and thigh injuries. He gained 131 yards and scored three TD’s. Alvin Kamara scored the three touchdowns for the New Orleans Saints, easy winners of Las Vegas (24-0). The Raiders have not once entered their opponent’s part of the field.

Christian McCaffrey, recently transferred from Carolina to San Francisco, had a successful festival: a TD scored while running, a second on reception and a third on a pass. And the 49ers won at the Los Angeles Rams (31-14), who look less and less like the sacred team at the Super Bowl, last February. The Tennessee Titans won in Houston (17-10), thanks to 219 yards from Derrick Henry, their star runner. This signed his sixth game over 200 yards in career, equaling the record of OJ Simpson and Adrian Peterson.

Crazy end to the game between Atlanta and Carolina

The Miami Dolphins, on the other hand, enjoy the aerial game. They beat Detroit (31-27), with 328 yards passed by Tua Tagovailoa, their QB. Tyreek Hill garnered 188 yards, when Jaylen Waddle scored two touchdowns. Quietly, the Minnesota Vikings play the leading roles. They won against Arizona (34-26) and have six wins in seven games, the second best record in the NFL (behind Philadelphia and tied with Buffalo).

In the duel between two surprise teams of the season, the Seattle Seahawks had the upper hand against the New York Giants (27-13), thanks to two TD’s scored late in the game. Completely crazy conclusion between Atlanta and Carolina: the Panthers equalized 12 seconds from the end, on a touchdown from 62 yards. But the kicker missed the conversion. Extension. The Atlanta QB was intercepted. But Carolina did not take advantage and missed a field goal. Younghoe Koo, the Falcons kicker, then did not tremble and offered the victory to his team (37-34).

Kansas City and Patrick Mahomes were off this week. Day eight will end with Cincinnati and Joe Burrow traveling to Cleveland on Monday.
