Philadelphia (10-1) rushed for a whopping 363 of its 500 total yards and matched its best start since the 2017 team that won Super Bowl LII. Miles Sanders ran for 143 yards and two touchdowns.

Green Bay (4-8) fought hard but lost for the seventh time in eight games and fell to 1-6 away from home, including a Week 5 loss to the Giants in London.

Aaron Rodgers passed for 140 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions before leaving the game with an oblique injury late in the third quarter. His nine interceptions this year are his most since tossing 11 in 2010.

Hurts’ 6-yard TD pass to A.J. Brown put the Eagles up 34-20 midway through the third.

Rodgers, playing with a broken thumb since the setback in England, departed after Mason Crosby’s 29-yard field goal made it 34-23 with 2:03 left in the third.

Jordan Love took over in the fourth quarter, trailing 37-23 after Jake Elliott’s 31-yard field goal. Love’s third pass was a 63-yard TD to Christian Watson — the rookie receiver’s sixth score in his last three games — to make it 37-30 with 9:00 left.

Crosby answered with a 33-yarder with 1:08 left, but the Eagles recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock.

Love finished 6-of-9 for 113 yards and Watson had four catches for 110 yards.

Kenneth Gainwell’s 4-yard TD run capped the opening drive of the game by the Eagles.

Rodgers’ first pick led to a 15-yard TD run by Sanders and a 13-0 lead for Philadelphia.

AJ Dillon’s 20-yard TD run put the Packers on the board. Rodgers’ 11-yard strike to Randall Cobb put them in front, 14-13.

Sanders scored from 2 yards out on the first snap of the second quarter to move the Eagles back on top 20-14.

After Quay Walker’s 63-yard fumble return, Rodgers tied it up with a 23-yard TD to Aaron Jones.

With 13 seconds left, Hurts’ 30-yard TD to Quez Watkins gave Philadelphia a 27-20 lead at halftime.
