National reactions: Eagles move to 10-1 after running all over the Packers

The Eagles are 10-1 after a 40-33 win over the Packers on Sunday night in a game that saw Aaron Rodgers exit with an oblique injury.

Philadelphia rode quarterback Jalen Hurts, who amassed a record-setting 157 yards rushing on the ground, eclipsing the 130 yards rushing set by Michael Vick during the 2010 NFL season.

Hurts became the first player since at least 1950 with 150-plus yards rushing and 150-plus yards passing with multiple pass touchdowns in a game, while Miles Sanders ran for 143 yards and two scores as Philadelphia rushed for 363 overall, the second-best total for the franchise.

Here’s the national reaction to Philadelphia’s impressive offensive performance.

Eagles run all over the Packers.

The Philadelphia Eagles secured a 40-33 victory for their 10th win of the season against the Green Bay Packers. The Birds rushed for over 363 yards as a team. QB Jalen Hurts accounted for 157 of those yards, which marks a career high for the MVP candidate. Ben and Sheil break down the monstrous Eagles rushing attack, why the defense appeared to struggle, and a disappointing outing from the special teams unit.

Eagles run over the Packers.

They finished, as you’d expect, with a lot of rushing yards (363), with Jalen Hurts going for 157 and Miles Sanders going for 143. And that, above all else, is the reason that Philadelphia was mostly able to keep struggling Green Bay at arm’s length all night.

Reed Blankenship’s surprise star turn bolsters Eagles’ big night.

Enter Blankenship, who grew up in a small Alabama town of just over 100 people. A five-year starter in college who holds the program’s all-time tackles record, Blankenship nevertheless went undrafted in the spring and signed with the Eagles for $55,000 guaranteed and a $5,000 signing bonus, ranking him 11th on the team’s 12-player class of undrafted rookies. General manager Howie Roseman later said Blankenship was the “last man in (the safety) group” when he joined the team.
