The Philadelphia Eagles took down the Miami Dolphins 31-17 on Sunday Night Football in Week 7, and A.J. Brown was a big reason why. He absolutely torched the Dolphins' secondary, hauling in 10 catches on 15 targets for 137 yards and a touchdown.

It was just another day at the office for Brown, who has now exceeded 125 receiving yards in five straight contests. One thing that made Sunday's performance even more impressive, though, was that he was playing through an injury.

A.J. Brown Injury Update

During the media session after the game, Brown revealed to reporters that he briefly exited the game after getting hit in the face. He said that he went into the medical tent on the sidelines because he had a big cut on his face, which explains why he was wearing a bandage under his eye during his postgame interview.

Brown also said that his vision was still a bit blurry when he returned to the field. That didn't stop him from immediately reeling in a big 32-yard catch on his first play back, bringing the Eagles to the 1-yard line and setting up an easy touchdown.

The fact that Brown still had a monster game despite dealing with a tough injury proves that he's truly unstoppable. Nothing can slow down the two-time Pro Bowler right now, least of all not enemy defenses and facial cuts.

Brown is a tough dude, so props to him for playing through the injury and continuing to help his team during such a critical matchup. Sunday night's win was a big one for us, and it wouldn't have happened without our No. 1 receiver.
