Philadelphia Eagles, who are unbeaten this season, played the Huston Texans last night and won with relative ease. The Texans, are actually having one of their worst seasons ever. They are currently struggling with a 1-6-1 record.

Jalen Hurts threw for 243 yards and two touchdowns as the unbeaten Philadelphia Eagles outlasted the Houston Texans in the first half to win 29-17 on Thursday night.

In the Texans’ Week 9 loss to the Eagles, Rex Burkhead ran once for nine yards and added one reception for six yards. Burkhead was a mere afterthought, even on a night when the Texans relied heavily on the run and were without their top two pass catchers, Brandin Cooks and Nico Collins. In his last five appearances, he has only received 20 touches.

Rex Burkhead played four seasons for the Patriots before joining the Texans in 2021. He is currently having one of the worst seasons of his career. In Sunday’s 17-10 loss to the Titans in Week 8, he did not receive a carry and caught his lone target for two yards.

In Week 7’s 38-20 loss to the Raiders on Sunday, Burkhead had two carries for eight yards and five of six targets for 11 yards. He has only had one good game this year which came against the Jaguars, where he caught two of three passes.
