The Philadelphia Eagles have once again exhibited their football skill, putting on a spectacle that has both fans and detractors buzzing. Their recent win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was more than a victory; it was a message.
A Historic Scoreline
The Eagles’ 25-11 victory over the Buccaneers was more than simply a win; it was a historic one. This was the 1078th distinct final score in NFL history, a phenomenon known as a “scorigami”. Interestingly, this was the second scorigami of Week 3, with the Miami Dolphins also recording a one-of-a-kind final score versus the Denver Broncos.
The Hurts Effect
Jalen Hurts, the Eagles’ quarterback, was instrumental in this victory. Throwing for a touchdown, running for another, and leading a game-ending drive that spanned over nine minutes, Hurts showcased his skills and determination. His 34-yard touchdown pass to Olamide Zaccheaus was a highlight, helping the Eagles establish a 13-3 lead by half-time.
D’Andre Swift: The Rushing Sensation
D’Andre Swift, with his 130 rushing yards, was another standout performer. This impressive feat comes just a week after Swift’s career-high 175 yards. The Eagles’ rush game has been particularly strong this season, with the team outrushing its opponents 460-69 over the last two games.
Unbeaten and Unstoppable?
For the second year in a row, the Eagles have opened the season 3-0. They are presently the only unbeaten teams, along with Miami and San Francisco. This flawless start has set the foundation for a thrilling season for the Eagles and their fans.
The Eagles will next meet their NFC East rivals, the Washington Commanders, in a game that promises to be exciting. The Buccaneers, on the other hand, will be aiming to rebound from this loss when they face the New Orleans Saints.
