A.J. Brown got his revenge against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday as the wide receiver led the Philadelphia Eagles to a 35-10 Week 13 victory.

The Titans traded Brown to the Eagles in April, but they certainly missed him in this one as he tallied eight catches for 119 yards and two touchdowns.

The 2020 Pro Bowler helped put the game away early in the second half with an impressive touchdown catch:

Fans knew what the game meant to the 25-year-old facing the team that drafted him:

The Titans couldn't pay and can't cover AJ Brown. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/TENvsPHI?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#TENvsPHI</a>

Those watching the game continue to heap praise on the wideout, who also had a long touchdown in the first half.

1st one incomplete...No problem. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/ProBowlVote?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#ProBowlVote</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/1kalwaysopen_?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@1kalwaysopen_</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/TENvsPHI?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#TENvsPHI</a> | <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/FlyEaglesFly?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#FlyEaglesFly</a> <a href="https://t.co/3xk1oK8JXF">pic.twitter.com/3xk1oK8JXF</a>

Both scores showed off his incredible skill set:

Stephen Gutowski @StephenGutowski

Just throw it to AJ Brown on every single play. They can't cover him.

Jay Scott Smith @JayScottSmith

AJ Brown is a perpetual problem out here.

Alex Barth @RealAlexBarth

AJ Brown is a bully. That’s big boy football.

Walk @BWalk28

Aj Brown abusing these boys

Albert Breer @AlbertBreer

AJ Brown is RIDICULOUS. Was not open. Didn't matter. Jalen Hurts gave him a chance. And he turned it into a touchdown.

Ed Werder @WerderEdESPN

AJ Brown is ridiculous. Especially against his former team. And quite a perfect throw by Jalen Hurts. Eagles headed for 11-1.

Ducis Rodgers @duciswild

AJ Brown is unreal. You can't cover him--and even if you do, you'll still lose. Not from this world. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/FlyEaglesFly?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#FlyEaglesFly</a>

Travis Yost @travisyost

AJ Brown is absolutely terrifying.

Jalen Hurts had an impressive game himself, throwing three touchdowns to go with one rushing score. Brown was still the story of the day as he showed the Titans exactly what they were missing.

It helped the Eagles improve to 11-1 on the season, while Tennessee is 7-5 after a second straight loss.

The Titans could still be happy with the trade after landing receiver Treylon Burks in the first round of the draft. The rookie left with an injury, but not before scoring his first career touchdown with an incredible effort.

Tennessee Titans @Titans

Holding on through the hit 💪 <a href="https://twitter.com/TreylonBurks?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@TreylonBurks</a> <br><br>📺: Watch <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/TENvsPHI?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#TENvsPHI</a> on <a href="https://twitter.com/NFLonFOX?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@NFLonFOX</a> <a href="https://t.co/YDGMgUYx93">pic.twitter.com/YDGMgUYx93</a>

Field Yates @FieldYates

Holy Crap. Titans WR Treylon Burks just made an INSANE catch in the end zone and got totally crushed by two Eagles defenders, which drew a flag. <br><br>He's down in the end zone getting medical attention.

TURRON DAVENPORT @TDavenport_NFL

That's quite a catch by Treylon Burks. He went up and grabbed that pass, got rocked but somehow held on. He's down on the field now. That's a big time play!

Ben Arthur @benyarthur

Incredible touchdown catch by Treylon Burks. But he's down. Took a massive shot from the Eagles DB helping in the end zone.

Josh Tolentino @JCTSports

Just an incredible catch in the end zone by rookie Treylon Burks. He knew contact was coming, and Burks still came down with the completion. Marcus Epps with the big tackle. Epps is penalized for unnecessary roughness.

RC Maxfield @RCMB323

Unbelievable catch by Treylon Burks for the <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Titans?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Titans</a> TD<br><br>Hope he’s alright after ejection worthy hit from Epps

The Eagles are still happy with Brown, but the deal could end up becoming a win-win for the two organizations.
