The Washington Commanders had no chance against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Jalen Hurts was a man on a mission, as he lit up Washington through the air and the ground. He’s looked phenomenal so far this season, as he’s looking like an early MVP candidate. Additionally, Hurts has put himself in elite company after just three games.
Jalen Hurts’ Bonkers MVP-Like Performances Put Him In The Record Books
According to NFL Research, Hurts torched the Commanders with 318 passing yards and three total touchdowns. He now has 916 passing yards and 167 rushing yards on the season so far. With that in mind, “Hurts is the first player with at least 900 passing and 100 rushing yards through three games since at least 1950.”
The Eagles’ offense has been unstoppable to begin the season. AJ Brown has been incredibly reliable, DeVonta Smith put the NFL world on notice on Sunday, and Jalen Hurts is proving the doubters wrong. Additionally, Philadelphia arguably has the best offensive line in the league and can run the ball effectively as well.
It’s no wonder Jalen Hurts is able to move the ball down the field with ease. What’s more impressive though, is that nobody was quite sure what to expect from him when he was originally drafted. Many wrote him off as a bust long before he had a chance to prove himself. Luckily, the Eagles have given Hurts a chance to prove himself.
Look for Philadelphia to keep flying high on Jalen Hurts’ MVP-like season. It’s still early, but if he keeps putting up performances as he has, then the Eagles quarterback very well could be in the running to win the award. With how good this team is playing right now, Philly has to be considered an early Super Bowl favorite as well.
