Eagles Defeat Jaguars in the Rain 29-21- Week 4 Summary

“Rain, sleet, or snow, the Eagles train to go!”- Jalen Hurts

The Philadelphia Eagles took on the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, October 2nd, at 1 PM EST. This was an entertaining game to watch.

Lots of scores on both teams; Miles Sanders, a key player this game, helped guide the Eagles’ offense to a comeback win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Sanders finished with 29 touches, 156 scrimmage yards, two touchdowns, and no fumbles.

However, Philadelphia had a horrible start to the game. Four minutes into the game, Jalen Hurts throws a Pick-6 (an interception returned for a touchdown). Andre Cisco picked him off and took it to the house for 59 yards.

The Philadelphia offense couldn’t make anything happen in the first quarter. At the end of the first, the Jaguars finished it with a score, as Trevor Lawrence passed to Jamal Agnew for a 4-yard touchdown.

The second quarter is where Philly started to turn up. They marched down the field, and Hurts rushed up the middle for a 3-yard touchdown run. The big play that got them down the field was a Hurts short pass across the middle to Dallas Goedert for 26 yards.

Then, Philly’s defense gets a stop. The next drive for the Eagles was a score as well. They utilized their run game this drive since they were in rainy conditions in Philadelphia, as Miles Sanders rushed up the middle for a 10-yard touchdown run.

Then, Philly’s defense stepped up and forced a fumble. The pass rush was too great for the Jaguars’ offensive line, which forced Lawrence to scramble, and due to the rainy condition, the ball slipped out of his hand, and Hasson Reddick could recover it.

The next offensive drive for the Eagles is also a score. The key play was a 4th down conversion at the Jax 12-yard line. It was a 4th and 1 and Hurts sneaked forward for a 2-yard gain, picking up first down.

Then, Kenneth Gainwell rushes to the left for a 10-yard touchdown run.


The second half started slow for both teams, with each possession going nowhere. However, 6 mins into the 3rd quarter, the Philly defense shows why they are easily a top 3 defense in the league by forcing another turnover. James Bradberry intercepts a pass from Lawerence intended for Christian Kirk.

The Eagles responded with a Jake Elliot 43-yard field goal. Unfortunately, Elliot was hit late in this play and is now ruled out against the Cardinals. Due to the late hit, they pick up the first down but kick a field goal anyways, as they don’t convert third down later that drive.

Then, Philly again shows why they are the best defense in the NFL by forcing another turnover. Of course, it was Reddick who made the play. Reddick stripped Lawrence and recovered the ball for no gain. Then, Philly’s offense got going again by scoring another touchdown.

Miles Sanders rushed for another touchdown for 5 yards. Philly also attempted a two-point conversion. Unfortunately, that fails; Hurts threw an incomplete pass to Devonta Smith.

Then, the Jaguar’s offense made some changes and scored on their next drive. Lawrence found Jamal Agnew again for an 8-yard touchdown pass.

Philly’s offense gets stopped the next drive, as the Jaguar’s defense forced a turnover on downs.

There was a notable play for the Eagles, however. A particular play that seems to keep getting Philly significant yardage is a short pass to Dallas Goedert. He caught the pass and ran for 22 yards. Goedert leads the NFL in yards after the catch at the tight end position.

Now, there is a common phrase that is mentioned throughout this article, and it is “Philly forces a turnover.” Well, it happened again, and it was none other than Hasson Reddick who came up big. He stripped Lawrence, and Javon Hargrave recovered the ball for a 2-yard gain. Philly sat in victory formation and ended the game as Hurts kneeled it out. 


Eagles Player of the Week:

The Titan Tribune nominates Linebacker Haason Reddick as the Eagles’ Player of the Week. Haasan had four solo tackles, two strip sacks, two fumble recoveries, one tackle for loss, and one quarterback hit this past week against the Jaguars.

Reddick showed just how well he could get to the ball last Sunday and was a force that changed the course of the game. He helped seal the game with a recovered strip sack from Trevor Lawrence late in the fourth quarter.
