Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts continued his march toward a potential nfl MVP award in the team’s 40-33 win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night football.

Hurts was his usual spectacular self in front of the home crowd at Lincoln Financial Field, throwing for 153 yards and two touchdowns and rushing for a game-high 157 yards. The 24-year-old set a Philadelphia franchise record for most rush yards by a quarterback in a single game.

Eagles running back Miles Sanders also had a strong day with 143 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. He and Hurts spearheaded a Philadelphia rushing attack that totaled 353 yards on Sunday.

As the Eagles maintain the best record in the nfl at 10-1, Hurts has been the engine that powers the team to success. In his third season, he’s blossomed into one of the best offensive talents in the league.

Hurts’ record-setting performance drew praise from fans on social media, with some believing that he’s well on his way to earning some hardware by the end of the year:

Jordan Moore @iJordanMoore

No better player in the nfl right now than Jalen Hurts.

Guy got so much disrespect his first year in the league and now he’s used that as motivation in an MVP season.

Marcus Spears @mspears96

Jalen Hurts you’ve arrived sir!! That’s big time QBing you’ve been arrived but it felt like the right thing to say after that throw

Will Lowery @jwlowery29

Still amazing to me the growth of Jalen Hurts after leaving Alabama. He hit a clear ceiling in Tuscaloosa, then almost won a Heisman at Oklahoma, and now in the MVP race leading arguably the nfl’s best team. 🤯 👏 👊

Mike Kaye @mike_e_kaye

Quez Watkins’ development since his rookie summer is really impressive. Jalen Hurts is on another planet from that summer, too.

Matt Miller @nfldraftscout

I will never get tired of watching Jalen Hurts.

Jeff McLane @Jeff_McLane

Jalen Hurts 145 rushing yards is the most ever by an Eagles QB in a game.

Michael Vick had the previous mark with 130 yards.

Dave Zangaro @DZangaroNBCS

Jalen Hurts and Miles Sanders both have 115+ rushing yards tonight. First Eagles duo to do that in a game since LeSean McCoy and Bryce Brown in 2013.

Skip Bayless @RealSkipBayless

In the first half, Jalen Hurts personally accounted for 254 yards (128 passing, 126 rushing). I tried to tell you the day the Eagles stole him in the second round.

Jalen Hurts is up to 246 yards of total offense. The Packers have 180.

He has almost as many rushing yard (130) as the Packers have total offense

Aidan Doc🧸 @AidanDoc_

Jalen Hurts is so good, he’s doing everything, truly an MVP moment

Brooklyn @Brookie425

Jalen Hurts is a really great quarterback and if you think otherwise, you’re wrong.

@9_davidd

Dead President Picks @DeadPresPicks

Jalen Hurts is a cheat code.

Pay that man any amount of $.

Jamal @FinessedBuckets

The Jalen Hurts era feeling like it’s gonna be the best era of Eagles football

In addition to Hurts’ dazzling dual-threat ability, the other aspect of his game that has been impressive this season is his decision-making. He has thrown just three interceptions this season, and he didn’t commit a turnover against Green Bay.

If Hurts can maintain his efficiency and continue to play mistake-free football, the Eagles will have no problem keeping their status as top contenders in the NFC, and he will undoubtedly be a leading candidate for league MVP.

Philadelphia will look to keep the momentum going next Sunday when it welcomes the 7-4 Tennessee Titans to town.
