The Philadelphia Eagles (9-1) added another feather in its cap after a thrilling come-from-behind road win against the Indianapolis Colts (4-6-1).
Contrary to the team’s first nine games of the season, the Eagles spent most of Sunday’s contest trailing. Entering the fourth quarter, Indianapolis held a 13-3 lead over Philadelphia.
The Eagles proved that the 10-point cushion was not enough, as Jalen hurts and the Eagles offense outscored the Colts 14-3 in the final frame.
It was the first time the Birds were able to mount a 10-point comeback win in the fourth quarter since 2010 in a win over the New York Giants.

Throughout the season the Eagles have had success jumping on opponents early. On Sunday, they proved that they are comfortable in any game no matter the score.
What makes the win all the more impressive is that the Birds were able to find another gear late in the game. They were able to bounce back in a short week after a frustrating loss to the Washington Commanders on Monday Night Football.
“I feel like there was never a doubt,” Hurts said after the win. “Perfection is something that will never be caught, but why not chase it? Why not chase that golden standard of doing stuff the right way, executing with the right details, having the right fundamentals. That’s something that we chase every day.”
