Written by Tony Ghaul

Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa have their teams at 3-0 atop their divisions. Tagovailoa of the Miami Dolphins and Hurts of the Philadelphia Eagles were good for the University of Alabama and are leading their respective teams to the top the National Football League in their third seasons.

The two assisted the Crimson Tide to a College Football Playoff National Championship in 2017 and are proving naysayers wrong in the NFL. Both put in work during the offseason to improve their bodies, leadership, communication skills, passing mechanics, and overall performance. The hard work and motivation are paying off as the two former Tide QB’s have their teams at 3-0 and are the only undefeated teams left in the NFL.
