Hurts became the third quarterback in NFL history to throw for 150+ and run for 150+ in the same regular season game, joining Vick and Lamar Jackson.

This is the first Player of the Week award in Hurts’ career, but he was named NFC Offensive Player of the Month for his performance this September. He is the 10th Eagles quarterback ever to be named NFC Offensive Player of the Week and the first since Nick Foles in Week 16 of the 2018 season.

On the season, Hurts has completed 67.3% of his passes for 2,560 yards with 17 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. He’s also rushed for 597 yards with 8 more touchdowns on the ground. He’s putting together an MVP-level season.
