This game should’ve been a comfortable win for the Birds but nope, it was way closer than any of us would have liked.

The Eagles got off to a strong start. The 19-play, 90-yard opening drive took 9:54 off the clock and resulted in a touchdown to put the Eagles on the board first 7-0.

There was some good but there was also a TON of bad — a combination of drops and stupid turnovers allowed the Jets to hang around upsetting the Birds, 20-14 and allowing the Jets to secure their first win in franchise history against the Eagles.

The Birds also lost Lane Johnson (ankle), Eli Ricks (knee) and Reed Blankenship (ribs) to injuries during the game.

Jalen Hurts finished with 328 total yards, 2 TDs and 3 INTs.

D’Andre Swift had 17 yards on 10 carries. A.J. Brown had 131 yards on 7 catches and became the first Eagles WR to have 125 receiving yards in 4 straight games.
