PHILADELPHIA — A.J. Brown had already caught three touchdown passes and was on his way to his fourth – boom! – he was caught from behind and had to settle for a gain of only 43 yards.

“My teammates gave me a hard time for that,” Brown said, laughing. “I felt sure like I was going to score. (The defender) did a good job swiping my legs and getting me down.

Brown and the Eagles could afford to chuckle after Sunday’s 35-13 romp against the Pittsburgh Steelers that moved the league’s only undefeated team to 7-0.

The Eagles had more fun on the sideline: Jason Kelce playfully wore a Batman mask as a nod to the superhero nicknames assigned to their wide receivers. Brown is “Swole Batman.”

Only an epic collapse could keep Philadelphia from the NFC East title. Only serious injuries could derail a serious run to the Super Bowl.

Why should the Phillies and the Union have all the fun?

Jalen Hurts threw three touchdown passes to Brown in the first half and finished with 285 total yards and four TDs. Brown had six receptions for 156 yards. The Eagles are 7-0 for the second time in franchise history, joining the 2004 team that reached the Super Bowl.

“I think we just want to be great,” Brown said.

Eagles tackle Lane Johnson has a clear understanding of what impressed him most about Brown.

“Just catching the balls, and doing whatever the hell he wants to do,” Johnson said. “He just had a hell of a game. Just one of those games where I’m sitting back there blocking and I see the ball up there and I see him make catch after catch. Special player.”
