NFL roundup: Eagles win late as Pats crush Jets’ hearts with last-minute TD
Jalen Hurts ran for an eight-yard touchdown with 1:20 remaining, and the Philadelphia Eagles rallied past the Indianapolis Colts 17-16 on Sunday.
Coming off their first loss of the season, the Eagles (9-1) trailed 13-3 in the fourth quarter
Hurts threw for a touchdown early in the period to get Philly within three.
The third-year quarterback was 18 of 25 with 190 yards through the air and rushed 16 times for 86 yards as the Eagles won their seventh straight road game.
Indianapolis (4-6-1) never trailed until Hurts’ scoring run. Interim coach Jeff Saturday evened his record at 1-1 since taking over for the fired Frank Reich.
Hurts did it all, routinely burning the Colts for big runs. And on third-and-goal from the eight-yard line, he found a seam in the middle and sprinted across the goal line for the decisive score.
Indy had a chance for a game-winning drive, but it stalled before the Colts could get to midfield and they turned it over on downs.
Marcus Jones returned a punt 84 yards for a touchdown with five seconds remaining and the New England Patriots outlasted the stunned New York Jets.
It was the third straight win for the Patriots (6-4) and their 14th straight over New York. They also denied the Jets (6-4) a chance to move into first place in the AFC East this late in the season for the first time since 2010.
