PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Jalen Hurts rolled to his right, scampered down the sideline and stutter-stepped to the 5-yard-line, where he was wrapped up by a defender with another in pursuit. Hurts twisted his body, lowered his head, dragged two defenders with him and powered his way in for an adrenaline-filled 26-yard touchdown run that about broke the game open.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Kirk Cousins tried to get the ball to Justin Jefferson.
Darius Slay kept getting in the way.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A.J. Brown hung an “Always Open” sign — such as the kind you’d find at a diner — last week in his locker.
