The only problem is ... it could have been longer.
If Ajayi didn’t get caught from behind, it would’ve been an 86-yard touchdown. This didn’t end up mattering because the Eagles scored a touchdown on this drive anyway (Carson Wentz to Torrey Smith), but that didn’t stop Ajayi’s teammates from teasing him about it.

Corey Clement: “Get yo slow ass over here! You slow as shit!”
Jay Ajayi: “They gon’ lower my speed on Madden”
Kenjon Barner: “Unhook the trailer, with your slow ass ... that’s a damn shame! You an embarrassment ... that was a good run though.”
Haha, love that little line by Barner at the end to make it clear he’s just messing around.
In fairness to Ajayi, he did get caught from behind by a pretty fast player. Cowboys safety Byron Jones runs a 4.3 40-yard dash and he’s an elite athlete all around.
Still, you’d like to see the Jay Train take it all the way to the station. Can’t get caught by the caboose.
