The matchup of the league’s best offenses failed. The Eagles, who entered second in total offense, gained 355 yards and outgained the Dolphins 31-17.
Lucky for the Dolphins with 244 yards, it’s not that bad.
Jalen Hurts’ two turnovers led to 10 Miami points. A fumble by Hurts on a strip-sack by Bradley Chubb at the Philadelphia 23 was recovered by Christian Wilkins and led to a 40-yard field goal by Jason Sanders. Hurts also threw a pick-six on a pass by cornerback Kather Coho and a 22-yard return by Jerome Baker.
Hurts went 23-of-31 for 279 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. His touchdowns were 19 yards to Dallas Goedert and 14 yards to AJ Brown. When the Eagles were at the Dolphins 6-yard line they created a punt.
Hurts played the second half with a brace on his left leg, but told NBC sideline reporter Melissa Stark that he was “fine.”
He had 11 carries for 21 yards, including a 1-yard touchdown run on a quarterback push play.
Brown caught 10 passes for 137 yards.
Tua Tagoailoa went 23-32 for 216 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Darius Slay picked him off in the end zone on third-and-eight with 11:21 remaining from the Philadelphia 24.
Tyreek Hill caught 11 passes for 88 yards and a touchdown, and Jaylen Waddle, who was sidelined with a back injury, had six catches for 63 yards. Raheem Mostert ran for 45 yards on nine carries.
The Eagles moved to 6-1, while the Dolphins fell to 5-2.
