Jalen Hurts threw three touchdown passes and rushed for another, and the host Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Tennessee Titans 35-10 on Sunday.

Hurts was 29 of 39 for 380 yards and tossed two touchdowns to A.J. Brown, a former member of the Titans. Brown had eight receptions for 119 yards and DeVonta Smith added five catches for 102 yards and a score.

The Eagles improved to a league-best 11-1.

The Eagles also became the first NFL team to throw for more than 350 yards after rushing for more than 350 yards the previous week since the Los Angeles Raiders in 1987.

Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill was 14 of 22 for 141 yards and one touchdown and looked to be limping with soreness in both ankles. Stellar running back Derrick Henry was held in check with 11 carries for 30 yards.

Tennessee (7-5) dropped its second straight.

The Eagles took the opening kickoff and drove 75 yards in seven plays as Hurts connected with Smith on a 34-yard touchdown pass.

The Titans responded and tied the game at 7 when Tannehill tossed a 25-yard touchdown pass to Treylon Burks with 2:47 left in the first quarter. Burks took a massive hit from Marcus Epps, which resulted in a 15-yard personal foul penalty, and stayed down for several minutes before walking to the sideline. Burks was placed in concussion protocol and didn't return.

Hurts' second touchdown pass, this time a 40-yard strike to Brown, gave the Eagles a 14-7 advantage with 13:55 remaining in the half.

Tennessee cut the deficit to 14-10 following Randy Bullock's 36-yard field goal with 3:28 left.

The Eagles responded just before halftime and went ahead 21-10 when Hurts scampered into the corner of the end zone from the 2-yard line.

Brown hauled in his second touchdown catch with a 29-yard grab from Hurts for a 28-10 lead with 12:07 to go in the third quarter. Tre Avery was draped all over Brown but was unable to deny the score.

Miles Sanders scored from 3 yards out to propel the Eagles to a 35-10 advantage with 11:27 left to play. It capped a 16-play drive which lasted 9:51.
