Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles ran all over the Green Bay Packers in the primetime matchup on NBC yesterday.

Hurts set a franchise record for quarterbacks with 157 yards rushing and the Eagles racked up 363 yards on the ground in a 40-33 victory over Aaron Rodgers and the Packers on Sunday night.

Rodgers left the game with an oblique injury in the second half and backup Jordan Love kept the Packers in the game but Hurts and the Eagles ran away with it at the end to become the first NFL team to win 10 games this season.

Hurts also threw for 153 yards and two scores and Miles Sanders ran for 143 yards and two TDs.

Led by center Jason Kelce, Philadelphia’s offensive line continued its dominant performance this season.

The Eagles (10-1) are two games ahead of Dallas in the NFC East and lead Minnesota (9-2) for the No. 1 seed in the NFC.

Raiders 40 – Seahawks 34

In Seattle, Josh Jacobs ran 86 yards for a touchdown in overtime to give the Las Vegas Raiders a 40-34 victory over the Seahawks.

Jacobs set a franchise-record 229 yards rushing and had two TDs. Derek Carr’s 5-yard touchdown pass to Foster Moreau with 1:54 remaining sent the game to the extra period, setting up Jacobs’ game-winning run.

Geno Smith threw for 328 yards and two TDs for Seattle, which lost its second straight game.

Browns 23 – Buccaneers 17

In Cleveland, Nick Chubb ran for a 3-yard TD with 19 seconds left in overtime to lead the Browns to a 23-17 comeback win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tom Brady.

Jacoby Brissett threw for 210 yards and one score, a 12-yard TD pass to David Njoku that tied the game in the final minute of regulation.

Jets 31 – Bears 10

In East Rutherford, N.J., Mike White threw for 318 yards and three touchdown passes in his first start since last year and the New York Jets beat the Chicago Bears 31-10. White led the Jets to a season-high 466 yards after Zach Wilson was benched earlier this week.

Justin Tucker’s 67-yard field goal came up just short on the last play. Had it gone in, he would have broken his own record for the longest field goal in NFL history by one yard.

Chargers 25 – Cardinals 24

In Glendale, Ariz., Justin Herbert threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to Austin Ekeler with 15 seconds left and connected with Gerald Everett for a 2-point conversion to give the Los Angeles Chargers a 25-24 win over the Cardinals.
