It was another good week for the San Francisco 49ers, while the Carolina Panthers issued a reminder they aren't done just yet either.
He also added a rushing score to cap a memorable night in front of his watching family with his father shown by the TV cameras to be visibly emotional after Purdy's first TD pass.
Again, it wasn't all good news for Niner nation as Deebo Samuel suffered what appeared to be a high ankle sprain and could be out until the playoffs.
The 49ers have been the NFL's best defensive unit for most of the season, but the unofficial title of the league's most potent offense transferred from the Kansas City Chiefs to the on Sunday.
Led by regular season MVP favourite Jalen Hurts, who is 4/6 to scoop that award, the Eagles scored 48 points in their beatdown of NFC East rivals the .
Nick Sirianni's team have now scored at least 35 points in three straight games, which is Philly's longest such streak since 2002.
And with another rushing TD against the Giants - his 10th of the year - Hurts became the first QB in NFL history with 10 rushing TDs in back-to-back seasons.
The answer, remarkably, is yes, as the team that fired head coach Matt Rhule after getting off to a 1-4 start is now one win off top spot in the NFC South with two of their three division rivals still to play.
One problem Rhule could not solve was finding a reliable quarterback and another was that his team seemingly could not win games when their opponents scored 17 or more points.
It was their first win when allowing 17 or more points since week 4 of the 2020 season, having gone 1-27 under Rhule's leadership in such games, including 25 losses in a row.
Head coach Dan Campbell and his team have come through their fair share of hard times to emerge as surprise playoff contenders with four games to go.
He took time to settle after arriving in the same trade that took Matthew Stafford to Los Angeles and almost immediate success with the Rams, but Goff now looks like he has forestalled all questions about his future in Motor City.
Goff threw for 330 yards and three touchdowns for a Lions offense that has now scored 31 points or more in four of its past five games.
They opened up the playbook too with some imaginative calls, such as a successful fake punt on fourth-and-8 from their own 26-yard line and a third-and-7 pass to offensive tackle Penei Sewell that effectively iced the game.
Detroit's victory, coupled with the ' 20-12 loss at the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, flipped the favouritism for the Week 15 clash at MetLife Stadium as the Lions went from three-point underdogs to being favoured by one point.
