The Philadelphia Eagles put up another great performance on Monday Night Football, with their offense in sync and the defense, especially cornerback Darius Slay, locking down Justin Jefferson and the Minnesota Vikings offense to a tune of only 7 total points.

During Monday night's win, Eagles fans did get a bit of a scare when star wideout A.J. Brown came off the field and entered the medical tent on the sidelines. Usually this type of visit is reserved for the medical staff to check on a player for a potentially serious injury or a concussion.

Luckily, for Brown, the reason for his medical tent visit was much less innocent. The real reason? Nature called.

Brown and the reporters were able to laugh about it postgame in the locker room and everyone was able to breathe a sigh of relief that the team's No. 1 wideout had no medical issues pending.

Judging by Brown's reaction and him admitting that "I do that all the time," it's probably something that happens more frequently than people realize. After all, it is a much quicker option than running all the way back to the locker room, especially in the middle of an offensive drive. And it in terms of worrying the fans of a potential injury, going back to the locker room is usually a much bigger cause for concern than a trip to the medical tent.

All in all, everyone was happy to know that Brown is healthy and that the Eagles are 2-0 on the season, seeing their Super Bowl odds catapult up to +1300, tied with the Green Bay Packers for the fourth-best odds in the NFL, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

The Eagles head to Washington for a divisional matchup against the Commanders in Week 3 that has Philadelphia as 6.5-point road favorites.
