NFL Week 11 Game Recap: Philadelphia Eagles 17, Indianapolis Colts 16

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts (1) rushes in the ball for a touchdown Sunday, Nov. 20, 2022, during a game against the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

It didn’t resemble their first eight wins, but it added one to the Eagles' win column nonetheless.

With a Jalen Hurts seven-yard touchdown scamper with 1:20 remaining in the game, the Philadelphia Eagles snuck away with a 17-16 win over the Indianapolis Colts.

Offensive Spotlight: It was almost literally all Jalen Hurts for the Eagles offense on Sunday. His led all players in the game with 86 rushing yards on 16 carries, eight of which resulted in a first down. He ran for 39 more yards than Miles Sanders did and had three more attempts. 

The fumble problem that plagued the Eagles in their first loss of the season last week once again reared its ugly head. Hurts and A.J. Brown both had key fumbles, one to give the Colts an easy score and another to kill a potential scoring drive. That’s all very uncharacteristic for the team first in turnover-differential in the NFL.

Defensive Spotlight: The Eagles cornerback duo once again flexed their muscles in a favorable matchup. James Bradberry was targeted eight times and allowed only four catches for 10 yards, with none going for a first down. Darius Slay was targeted four times and allowed three catches for 36 yards, with only one going for a first down. You’re going to win a lot of games when your starting cornerback duo is playing at that kind of level.

Rookie Spotlight: Bernhard Raimann’s anchor got challenged all day by the Eagles powerful defensive front. He gave up five pressures on 36 pass-blocking snaps, including two sacks. The last one was a costly one on their final offensive drive. 

Offensive Line Spotlight: When looking to find reasons for the Eagles offensive woes, don’t point any fingers at the offensive line. Between starters Jordan Mailata, Landon Dickerson, Jason Kelce, Isaac Seumalo and Lane Johnson, the five combined to allow one lone hurry (Kelce) on 30 pass-blocking snaps. That’s about as dominant a day in pass protection as you’ll see all year.
