Jalen Hurts Should Be Front Runner For NFL MVP

Written by Tony Ghaul

Jalen Hurts had another amazing performance, in leading the 11-1 Eagles to a 35-10 victory over the Tennessee Titans. He became the first player in franchise history with 350-plus yards passing, three passing touchdowns and a rushing score in one game. That feat came a week after Hurts set an Eagles’ single-game rushing record for a quarterback.

Hurts completed 29 of 39 passes for 380 yards with three touchdown passes, resulting in a 130.3 passer rating. He also added a rushing TD, in Eagles destruction of the Titans.

On the season, Hurts has 2,940 yards passing, 20 TDs, only three interceptions and a 108.3 passer rating on 243-of-357 (68.1%) passing. He also has 609 yards rushing and nine touchdowns. He could become the first Philadelphia Eagle to ever win NFL MVP.

Hurts has gotten better every single year of his football life since he stepped on the field at Tuscaloosa as a freshman in 2016 and won SEC Offensive Player of the Year.
