The story of Jalen Hurts is one that will put a smile on anybody’s face. Hurts took Alabama to the national title as a true freshman before ultimately losing the starting job to Tua Tagovailoa and having to transfer to the University of Oklahoma. After a stellar senior year with the Sooners, Hurts was selected in the 2nd round of the 2020 NFL Draft with the No. 53 overall selection by the Philadelphia Eagles.
Initially, his time in Philadelphia was a bit rocky with Carson Wentz in town, but the Eagles turned the reigns over to Hurts and he has not been disappointed in the slightest.
Hurts had another dominant day today as his Eagles advanced to 3-0 on the season. Hurts complete 22 out of 35 passes for 340 yards and 3 touchdowns, with almost all of the damage coming in the first half of the 24-8 blow out. He continues to demonstrate that he is a key piece to the Eagles franchise moving forward.
