Jalen Hurts was spectacular in the Eagles’ 24-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football.
The 24-year-old has been steadily rising since becoming the Eagles’ full-time quarterback, and now he’s building an early MVP case for himself as the Eagles prove they’re a legitimate contender.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has noticed, as he expressed yesterday on “Shan & RJ””:.
“Well, Hurts has really evolved and is better than when he came out than you might have thought,” Jones said.
“I was particularly impressed with his passing, and I watched every snap last night. … He’s a guy that has always been able to run – very athletic, very strong. That’s not surprising.
“It doesn’t surprise me or startle me that we’re playing a Philadelphia team with a quarterback threat,” Jones added.
“I don’t dream of playing these teams that ultimately don’t have a quarterback that they’ve got a plan to move the ball with. They’ve certainly done that with him, and they’re doing a good job up there, and they’re going to be all we can handle.”
