WATCH: Ndamukong Suh on preparing to play against the Colts in just 2 days, Jalen Hurts, and the Eagles winning culture
The Philadelphia Eagles beat the Indianapolis Colts 17-16 to move to 9-1 on the season.
The game obviously wasn’t pretty, but at the end of the day, the Eagles took home a hard fought win thanks to a game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter by Jalen Hurts and the Eagles offense.
On top of Hurts obviously deserving a game ball, Nick Sirianni spoke following the game and told everyone how much the win meant to him because of his previous years as a member of the Colts’ coaching staff, and how he wanted to win for Frank Reich, the ex-head coach of the Indianapolis who was fired a few weeks ago.
You could also make a very strong case for Howie Roseman to get the game ball after two key free agents joined the team last week played a very important role on the defensive line for the Eagles in today’s win.
Linval Joseph & Ndamukong Suh combined for 7 Tackles and 1 Sack in their Eagles debut.
If you stop and really think about that, both Joseph and Suh hadn’t even played a single snap of football this season before today.
Suh specifically, joined the team on Thursday night, and had roughly two days to prepare. Pretty incredible.
The Eagles defense allowed just 99 rushing yards (3.8 avg) and really, gave up only one explosive play to Jonathan Taylor on the first drive of the game for 28-yards.
Following the game, Suh spoke with James Palmer of NFL TV about his experience over the last few days to get ready for today.
He studied NIGHT AND DAY to get ready for the Colts and to learn the Eagles defensive scheme. Suh also commented on Jalen Hurts, and how he has been watching him. Suh said Hurts was impressive and very mature for his age and that he was excited to be in Philly where there is a “winning culture.”
The Eagles will now shift focus to next week, when they welcome the Green Bay Packers to South Philadelphia on Sunday Night Football.
