Hurts and Bradlee Anae collided on the Eagles’ 1-yard line, returning the ball to the Commanders. The Eagles’ offense faltered inside the opposition’s 5-yard line for the second time on this occasion. In the following game, another touchdown reception by Brown was ruled invalid.

Brown declared, “I’m still employed.” “I believe the day will come when I can look back and say, ‘Go, A.J.,’ but not just yet. With Dallas, we have significant challenges. We must start working now.”

According to Hurts, “He’s really doing some impressive things.” “He’s performing well on a regular basis and is playing at a very high level. I understand his perspective and where it’s coming from because we are friends. Given his mindset, it is not surprising how he operates or what he does during the offensive. Both as a friend and a quarterback, I’m proud of him.”
