The Eagles are officially out of NFC East title contention after a 37-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
However, Jalen Hurts isn’t looking at the situation as a reason to give up.
Hurts, who turned the ball over three times in the fourth quarter, is adamant about using Sunday’s game as a learning experience.
“That failure teaches you a lesson and that pain does nothing but motivate you,” Hurts said, via the team’s website. “That pain is going to continue to motivate me and I’m going to be better for it.”
Hurts completed 21-of-39 passes for 342 yards and a touchdown while rushing for an additional 69 yards, but the two interceptions he tossed were costly for the Eagles. Still, Hurts has provided a lot of hope that things can be turned in the right direction after Carson Wentz’s disaster of a season.
