A.J. Brown and Jalen Hurts have been dreaming of playing together since they first FaceTimed when Brown was traded to the Eagles. Now, their dream is a reality as they prepare to head to Phoenix for Super Bowl LVII.
Brown has been around the playoffs before, but none of those teams were as good as this Eagles squad. He had career numbers with Hurts, catching 88 passes for 1,496 yards and 11 touchdowns during the regular season and earning his second Pro Bowl nod.
The Eagles have been dominating in the playoffs, crushing their first two opponents 69-14, and Brown’s lack of production hasn’t mattered. He has acknowledged the impressive work of the offensive line and running backs in powering the team to victory.
The Eagles will need Brown to have a big game in Super Bowl LVII as they try to keep pace with Patrick Mahomes and the No. 1 offense in the NFL. During the regular season, Brown averaged 88.0 yards per game and was often drawing the opponent’s top cornerback.
Brown and Hurts have been working towards this moment since they first talked about playing together, and now they are one win away from achieving immortality. This is the goal they have been striving for and now they are at the door, ready to take it.
