In a surprising turn of events in East Rutherford, New York, Breece Hall’s 8-yard touchdown, following Tony Adams’ interception of Jalen Hurts, propelled the Jets to a 20-14 victory over the previously undefeated Eagles. Despite a history of 0-13 against the Eagles, the Jets (3-3) secured their first win, electrifying MetLife Stadium. Zach Wilson’s 2-point conversion to Randall Cobb sealed the deal.

The Eagles (5-1) had a final opportunity, but the Jets’ resilient defense held firm. Despite Hurts’ 280 yards and one touchdown, his three interceptions marred the day. Wilson’s zero turnovers and Greg Zuerlein’s field goals were instrumental, while interceptions by Adams, Bryce Hall, and Quinnen Williams, along with a fumble recovery, bolstered the Jets’ defense.

Meanwhile, the Browns upset the 49ers 19-17 as rookie Jake Moody missed a game-winning field goal. San Francisco’s 15-game regular-season winning streak came to an end. Despite missing Deshaun Watson, the Browns (3-2) prevailed, capitalizing on a disputed penalty.

The 49ers (5-1) faced adversity without key players Christian McCaffrey and Deebo Samuel. P.J. Walker, brought up from the Browns’ practice squad, outperformed Brock Purdy, handing him his first NFL loss. Purdy nearly staged a comeback but couldn’t convert the late field goal attempt, sealing the Browns’ victory.

Jaguars Soar to 37-20 Victory Over Colts

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Trevor Lawrence tossed two touchdowns, while Travis Etienne rushed for two scores as the Jaguars extended their win streak to three, handing the Colts their ninth consecutive road defeat in the series.

With a dominant performance, the Jaguars (4-2) celebrated their most decisive victory of the season. The game was effectively sealed in the third quarter when Lawrence connected with rookie tight end Brenton Strange for a 10-yard touchdown, putting Jacksonville ahead 31-6. Lawrence also found Christian Kirk for a 29-yard TD in the second quarter. Etienne notched his touchdowns with runs of 2 and 22 yards during the same quarter.

The Colts (3-3) turned to Gardner Minshew in place of the injured rookie Anthony Richardson. Minshew, a sixth-round draft pick by the Jags in 2019, encountered some struggles, including a fumble and three interceptions.

Etienne contributed 55 yards on 18 carries, while Lawrence completed 20-of-30 passes for 181 yards, two TDs, and an interception before leaving the game due to injury late in the matchup, receiving attention for his left knee on the sideline.

Minshew completed 33-of-55 passes for 329 yards, securing a touchdown to Josh Downs but also throwing three interceptions.
