Instant analysis of Eagles 35-13 win over the Steelers in Week 8

Philadelphia moved to 7-0 for the first time since 2004 with a dominant 35-13 win over the Steelers at Lincoln Financial Field.

Jalen Hurts threw three touchdown passes to A.J Brown in the first half and finishes with 285 yards passing and four touchdowns as the undefeated Eagles overcame a slow first-quarter start.

A.J. Brown had six receptions for 156 yards and three scores, as Pittsburgh (2-6) could not contain the physical wide receiver.

Brown signed a $100 million deal, but he’s on a pace for 1,600 yards receiving he may be worth more than we can imagine.

Brown set a new career-high with 156 yards receiving in one game, along with three explosive touchdowns.

Hurts spent time with defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon during the bye week and then proceeded to carve up the Steelers’ defense.

Hurts was near perfect, going 19 of 26 passing for 285 yards, 4 TDs, 140.6 passer rating, and ten rushing yards.

He doesn’t play the safety position perfectly, but Gardner-Johnson is a big-time player who has recorded four interceptions on the season and a turnover in three straight contests.
