Eagles' best number: 4 (Sacks by Eagles defense)

Eagles' worst number: 2 (Jalen Hurts turnovers)

View from my living room:
I spent Sunday night switching back-and-forth between the Eagles game on Sunday Night Football and Rangers-Astros Game 6 of the ALCS.  I tuned in just in time to see Adolis Garcia's grand slam that gave the Rangers a 9-2 victory.  That means Monday's Phillies-Diamondbacks Game 6 of the NLCS will start at 5:07 p.m. at Citizens Bank Park.

Three stars

1. Eagles wide receiver A.J. Brown (10 receptions for 137 yards, 1 TD).

2. Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill (11 receptions for 88 yards, 1 TD).

3. Eagles defensive end Josh Sweat (2 sacks).

Eagles' best play
Eagles cornerback Darius Slay foiled a Dolphins drive with an interception in the fourth quarter that preserved a 24-17 lead.

Eagles' worst play
Hurts lost a fumble earlier in the game and also threw an interception off a deflection that Dolphins linebacker Jerome Baker returned 22 yards for a TD that tied the game at 17-17 in the third quarter.

Turning point
The Eagles converted two fourth-and-one plays by using the "Brotherly Shove" sneak during a late drive that ended with Kenneth Gainwell's 3-yard TD in the fourth quarter that stretched the lead to 31-17.

Did you notice?
The Eagles (6-1) are tied with the Chiefs for the best record in the NFL.  The 49ers (5-1) play the Vikings on Monday Night Football.…Brown tied former Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson for the NFL record with five straight games of at least 125 receiving yards.…Eagles Right Tackle Lane Johnson allowed a sack for the first time since Week 11 of the 2020 season.… Hill dropped a pass that would have tied the game at 24-24.… The Eagles committed zero penalties compared to 10 for the Dolphins.… Eagles linebacker Haason Reddick was a defensive spark with two TFL's. … Hurts and Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa shared a hug at midfield after the game.  They were teammates at Alabama and Jalen "lost" his starting job to Tua in the National Championship Game.
