Teams and experts around the NFL have been complaining for months about the Tush Push, and the sighs will likely grow louder after Philadelphia added a remix to the play.
Kudos to offensive coordinator Brian Johnson, who, with Philadelphia deep in Commanders territory and looking to run a quarterback sneak, decided to insert a play that allows the Birds to line up in the formation and then run a jet sweep to running back D’Andre Swift who took it in for a touchdown.
Teams must now prepare for the jet sweep along with the Tush Push, and social media reacted.
TD, D'Andre Swift with the Eagles adding a wrinkle to the Brotherly Shove.
Eagles take a 38-24 lead — and they turned the ball over twice inside the 10. Impressive overall performance from the offense.
Eagles will be 7-1 with Dallas visiting next week.

Nice trickery there that every team has to watch for. Eagles will have 38 points & that’s with 2 fumbles inside the 5. Many will be negative today (you have that right). My biggest takeaway is the offense is now ROLLING.
