It was quite a night for the Eagles on Sunday Night Football as they ran the ball down the throats of the Green Bay Packers all evening. Big nights for QB Jalen Hurts and RB Miles Sanders helped the Eagles to 363 rushing yards in the game. It was a figure topped only by the 2021 Baltimore Ravens in the last 15 years, and enough for top-20 of all-time. The Eagles eventually ran out 40-33 winners.
Hurts and Sanders help rack up rushing yardage
Jalen Hurts and Miles Sanders were the stars of the show on SNF. Quarterback Jalen Hurts rushed for 157 yards while also throwing for two touchdowns. Hurts’ rushing yards are the most ever by an Eagles quarterback in a game.
Meanwhile, running back Miles Sanders racked up 143 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.
The two helped lead the Eagles to a massive 363 rushing yards against the Green Bay Packers. That total that was enough for the 16th best regular season total of all-time in the NFL. In 2021, the Baltimore Ravens rushed for 404 yards, but barring that, this Eagles’ rushing yards total was the highest since 2007.
The Eagles were victorious over the Packers in the game by a scoreline of 40-33.

Jalen Hurts’ rushing game has helped elevate him into MVP conversations this year. Hurts was around +2000 to be MVP with sportsbooks at the start of the season, and can now be backed at +350 with Bovada. Patrick Mahomes is now the odds on favorite for the award.
