Eagles vs.  Jaguars: Live updates, game highlights, score


The Philadelphia Eagles, the NFL’s only remaining undefeated team, are hosting the Jacksonville Jaguars at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday afternoon.

The weather is not so welcoming in Doug Pederson’s first trip back to the Linc. It’s a rainy and windy day in South Philly.

One could argue the inclement conditions work in the Jags’ favor. With the Eagles viewed as the superior team, any kind of unexpected variance or weird element introduced to the matchup could potentially be an equalizer.

Whether the weather is a factor or not, this is a big game for the Birds. The Jags appear to be the toughest opponent they’ve faced thus far. And so it will be very interesting to see how the Eagles fare.

  • The Eagles honored Doug Pederson as the Jaguars came out of the tunnel. No tribute video.
  • The Eagles won the coin toss and elected to defer. Jags up first.


  • The Jags ran for five yards and then Marcus Epps knocked down a Trevor Lawrence pass to set up third down. On 3rd-and-5, Christian Kirk dropped a pass that was short of the sticks anyway. Three-and-out.
  • The Eagles took over at their own 21-yard line after Britain Covey let the ball bounce and then tried to return it for a 2-yard gain. The Eagles got to 4th-and-1 from their own 30-yard line and snuck it with Hurts. Risky but good aggressive call to go for it there. A couple players later, Hurts threw to a tightly covered Zach Pascal for some reason and the ball was tipped into the air for a pick six. Looked like a pretty bad decision. Also not the best effort from AJ Brown to prevent the score on the return. EAGLES 0, JAGUARS 7.
  • The Eagles drove 18 yards before having to punt after Hurts’ third down target for DeVonta Smith along the sideline was broken up by the Jags. Thought DeVonta could’ve came back to the ball but also thought it could be complete with more zip on the pass.
  • Arryn Siposs punted the ball from the Eagles’ 47-yard line for a touchback. So, a 27-yard difference. Maybe try to find a punter who doesn’t just kick it into the end zone? On 3rd-and-5, Lawrence had plenty of time to find a wide open Jamal Agnew. The Jags drove into the red zone with ease. James Robinson got stripped by Patrick Johnson but the ball bounced right to Kirk, very fortunate for Jacksonville. On 2nd-and-goal, the Jags ran a play that was similar to Nelson Agholor’s touchdown against the Bears in 2016 where he moved inside and then back outside to shake free for a wide open score. Dougie P playing the hits. EAGLES 0, JAGUARS 14.
  • Hurts rolled right and found AJ Brown for a 31-yard gain. The Eagles got to 3rd-and-5 from their own 42-yard line and ran it with Sanders. That run set up a 4th-and-3 with Hurts rolling left, getting hit, and throwing out of bounds for a turnover on downs. Not good!


  • Agnew was open deep for a touchdown but Lawrence overthrew him. CJ Gardner-Johnson missed a tackle to bring up a Jags 3rd-and-3. On third down, Josh Sweat came up with a tackle for no gain. Big Balls Doug went for it on fourth down and … Lawrence dropped the ball (!) for a Cox recovery. Never hurts to get lucky.
  • The Eagles opened their drive with a screen intended for Kenneth Gainwell, which went for a loss of two yards. Feels like the Birds force it to him too often. Hurts made a nice throw over the middle to Brown for a first down. Then a screen to Goedert went for a 26 yards after he was wiiiide open. Hurts hit Brown for a score…but it was called back for a total bullshit holding on Dallas Goedert. Look at this weaksauce:

The Birds got pushed back to their own 20-yard line but they didn’t let it stop them from scoring. A Hurts run on third down took it down to the 3-yard line. The Eagles went for it and Hurts powered through heavy contact for the Eagles’ first score. Hurts’ legs came up big there. Needed that TD. EAGLES 7, JAGUARS 14.

  • The Jags went three-and-out after Doug went with a coward’s draw on 3rd-and-10. The Eagles thank you, Doug.
  • The Eagles drove to 3rd-and-1 from the Jags’ 29-yard line and converted with another Hurts sneak. Trey Sermon took his first touch with the Eagles and gained 14 yards, nice run by him. Two plays later, Sanders took a draw and followed strong blocking (especially from Jason Kelce) into the end zone. Big theme of that drive, Philly beating the Jags up front. Tie game! EAGLES 14, JAGUARS 14.
  • The Jags had a botched snap on 3rd-and-1 that ended up being ruled as a recovery for the Eagles, though it was originally hard to see exactly who came up with the ball on the replay. Apparently it was Haason Reddick. Second big Jags fumble that led to an Eagles takeaway.
  • The Eagles took over at the Jags’ 35-yard line. They got to 3rd-and-2 from the 13-yard line and Sanders ran for one yard. On 4th-and-1, the Eagles easily converted with another sneak. Two players later, a draw to Gainwell resulted in an Eagles touchdown. The RB had a ton of room to work with up the middle. Jake Elliott missed the extra point with the wind doing him no favors, however. EAGLES 20, JAGUARS 14.




  • Jordan Davis officially logged a start at defensive tackle.
  • Josiah Scott got the start at nickel cornerback in place of Avonte Maddox.
  • Britain Covey replaced Quez Watkins as the Eagles’ kick returner.


  • Darius Slay walked to the locker room after the Eagles’ first defensive drive.
  • Jordan Mailata jogged to the locker room as the Eagles were opening up their second offensive drive. Jack Driscoll replaced him at left tackle.
  • Patrick Johnson got banged up in the second quarter. Suffered a head injury.
