Tennessee Titians rookie Treylon Burks leaves the game in concussion minutes after holding on to first career touchdown reception with a BRUTAL slap in the face
Tennessee Titans rookie wide receiver Treylon Burks was placed in concussion protocol after leaving the game after a massive hit on his first career touchdown reception in the Eagles’ 35-10 win.
The game came on the second drive of the game when Burks hauled in a 25-yard touchdown pass and took a helmet right on Eagles safety Marcus Epps’ facemask.
Epps was penalized for 15 yards for unnecessary rudeness and is likely to receive a fine from the NFL later in the week. Burks, on the other hand, stayed on the ground for a long time before heading to the dressing room.

He was evaluated in the dressing room before being ruled out for the second half of the game.
As for the rest of the game, former titan AJ Brown had a field day against the team that decided to trade him to Philadelphia this offseason after tallying eight catches, 119 yards and two touchdowns.
Eyeing Brown’s direction early and often, Jalen Hurts reinforced his MVP bid by throwing for 380 yards and three touchdowns and running for another score.

Hurts led the Eagles to an 11-1 start, the first time since 2004 with that record and the fourth time in franchise history. The 1949 Eagles won the NFL championship. The 1980 and 2004 teams lost in the Super Bowl.
The Eagles look just like a team capable of winning the Super Bowl.
Hurts was all they really needed to get closer to a playoff berth.
“We leave all the MVP stuff to whoever votes for all of that,” Brown said. “But he is doing a great job leading this team. He’s a great leader. He’s still climbing. He wants the team to be great.’
The fast, safe-arms QB posted a career-high 29 total touchdowns and had his third career game with four total TDs. His first half alone was a pretty good game for most quarterbacks: 268 yards passing and two touchdowns with a rushing score.
The Eagles’ defense was also top notch, bottled up by Derrick Henry – who had 11 carries for 30 yards – and limited Ryan Tannehill to 141 yards passing and a touchdown. He was fired six times. The Titans (7-5) lost their second straight but still have a comfortable lead in the AFC South.
