Eagles lead 24-0 in the Week 3 match against the Washington Commanders
Philadelphia Eagles captain and cornerback Darius Slay put on a Batman cape over the team's wide receiver Devonta Smith during their Week 3 clash against the Washington Commanders. The game is played at the FedEx Field in Washington.
The Eagles put up 24 points in the first half alone. QB Jalen Hurts threw three TDs during that time with one each to wide-receivers A.J Brown and DeVonta Smith while one to tight end Dallas Goedert. Smith has eight receptions for 169 yards while Brown has four receptions for 75 yards so far in the game.
Darius Slay said last week that the team has "three Batmans" in A.J. Brown (Swole Batman), DeVonta Smith (Skinny Batman), and Quez Watkins (Fast Batman).
A.J Brown celebrated his first touchdown as an Eagles player with the Batman celebration.
Brown was traded in the off-season from Tennessee Titans, having spent three seasons with the team. The player was drafted in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft and quickly became an integral part of the team. Over his time in Tennessee, he recorded 24 touchdowns in 185 receptions for 2995 yards.
Brown was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for the 18th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. After the trade, he agreed to a new four-year, $100 million contract with the Eagles, with $57 million guaranteed. The new contract will keep him with the Eagles until 2026.
Brown set the franchise record for receiving yards in a debut in Week 1 against the Detroit Lions, catching 10 passes for 155 yards in a 38-35 victory.
