The Philadelphia Eagles‘ impressive run this season continued on Sunday as they won an overtime thriller against the Buffalo Bills.

That win has resulted in a 10-1 record for the Eagles this season. They have been the best team in the league and are on a five-game win streak. Four of their last five wins have come against contending teams with a winning record. They have already beaten the reigning Super Bowl champions, the Kansas City Chiefs and their divisional rivals, the Dallas Cowboys.

They always talk about Tom Brady with the drives at the end — I’m hoping Jalen starts getting that name. I’m happy that he went out there and finished the deal (with) a game-winning drive. Keep them coming. We love putting it in his hands at the end to give us a chance. 

Hurts finished with 200 passing yards, 3 passing touchdowns and 2 rushing touchdowns. He is now in contention to win his first regular season MVP. The Eagles will look to roll on further as they face the San Francisco 49ers in their next game at home.
