Rookie DeVonta Smith sngged two TD passes from Jalen Hurts in the Eagles’ 30-13 win over the Denver Broncos.
Smith finished with four catches for 66 yards and the two touchdowns — becoming the first Eagles rookie with multiple receiving scores in a game since Jordan Matthews in 2014.
Smith’s two touchdown catches helped the Eagles build a commanding lead as their run game took over in the second half.
The Eagles had three players rush for over 40 yards for the third consecutive week — en route to 214 yards on the ground on the afternoon. Jordan Howard led Philadelphia with 13 carries for 83 yards while Boston Scott finished with 10 carries for 58 yards. Jalen Hurts — who completed 16 of 23 passes for 178 yards with two touchdowns and an interception — also had 14 carries for 53 yards. Hurts threw just three passes in the second half.
