PHILADELPHIA (WGNO) — The Saints have lost three in a row for the first time since the start of the 2016 season.

Philadelphia rushed 50 times for 242 yards, and quarterback Jalen Hurts scored three rushing touchdowns in a 40-29 Eagles win at Philadelphia Sunday.

The Saints are now 5-5 on the season.

The Saints, trailing 33-7, scored 15 straight points to get back in the game. Quarterback Trevor Siemian threw one of his three touchdown passes, a 26 yard strike to Marquez Callaway. Siemian then scored on a 17 yard scramble.
