Jets Soar to Victory, Ending Eagles' Undefeated Streak

 

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - After Tony Adams intercepted Jalen Hurts, Breece Hall ran for an 8-yard touchdown on one play with 1 minute, 46 seconds left, and the New York Jets had no lead until then. They preserved the upset by defeating the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles 20-14. We will get our first win against them on Sunday.

The Jets (3-3) looked to be on track against the Eagles, 0-13 overall, but Hurts intercepted his third of the game and Adams returned Philadelphia's fourth turnover 45 yards to put New York back on track. I placed it in the position of Score immediately.

Hall's run rocked MetLife Stadium and sent Jets fans into a frenzy as Zach Wilson connected with Randall Cobb for the two-point conversion.

The Eagles (5-1) had a chance to win by one when they got the ball back, but the defense stiffened as the game was all over. Hurts' deep throw to DeVonta Smith on fourth down was intercepted, and Wilson and the offense converted two knee kicks to seal an unlikely victory.

Hurts was 28-of-45 for 280 yards and one touchdown, but starting cornerback Sauce Gardner and D. Rushing.

Wilson was 19-of-33 for 186 yards and no touchdowns, but he also didn't commit any turnovers and the defense held the Jets back. Greg Zuerlein made four field goals a week after kicking five field goals. Adams, Bryce Hall and Quincy Williams each had an interception, and Quincy Williams recovered a D'Andre Swift fumble.

With the Eagles leading 14-12 and facing a third-and-6 from their own 22-yard line, Hurts threw a pass down the left sideline that was passed by A.J. Brown corrals with a left hand, then a right hand and goes out of bounds. Jets coach Robert Saleh objected, saying Brown did not have full control, but the decision was confirmed after a video review.

The defense held out after that, with Jake Elliott missing a 37-yard field goal to the right, setting the stage for the Jets' comeback.

Hurts completed a 19-play, 91-yard drive on his first possession, culminating in a 3-yard touchdown run to give the Eagles a 7-0 lead.

The Jets first appeared to have a goal-line position in mind when Hurts was ruled to have fumbled at the 1-yard line and Eagles wide receiver Olamide Zachias recovered the ball in the end zone. The Jets' ball was ruled a 1 because by rule only the player who fumbled could recover the forward's fumble in the end zone.

After reviewing the video, officials determined that Hearts was still in control of the ball when it crossed the goal line and reversed the decision.

The Eagles took advantage of a bad inning by the Jets in the second quarter. Hurts hit Brown with a 49-yard pass on a play that evaded C.J.'s tackle. Mosley and Bryce Hall reach the Jets' 3-yard line. Two plays later, Swift caught a pass and spun past the tackle of Quincy Williams. He scored in the end zone, making the score 14-3.
