·2 min read

Jalen Hurts, Miles Sanders, Boston Scott, and Kenneth Gainwell combined for four rushing touchdowns to help Philadelphia outlast Detroit 38-35 in Week 1 of the 2022 NFL season.

There is a lot of good and a ton of wrong to take from the season-opening win, and growth needs to happen between now and when the Vikings descend upon Lincoln Financial Field on Monday night.

Jalen Hurts looked calm and under pressure leading the Eagles, while A.J. Brown is everything as advertised after setting a franchise record in his debut.

With Philadelphia off until Wednesday, here are your studs and duds for Week one.
