[Updated 11-8] Trey Burton hauled in his second touchdown of the year on Sunday as he the Philadelphia Eagles routed the Denver Broncos and their formerly top-ranked defense 51-23 in Philadelphia.
Burton is listed as a tight end but lined up as a wide receiver on the play in what proved to be a good call, but also good scouting of the Broncos defense who gave up similar plays to Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce last week.
The touchdown was a 27-yard pass from Carson Wentz that put the Eagles (8-1) ahead of Denver 24-6 in the second quarter.

With starting tight end Zach Ertz inactive (hamstring), Burton and veteran Brent Celek stepped in to fill the void for the Eagles offense.
