Nick Sirianni calls Jalen Hurts’ game vs. Chiefs one of the best performances he's ever seen

Lost in the Eagles’ third straight defeat was the performance of quarterback Jalen Hurts, who again battled to the end while redeeming a poor outing in Week 3 against the Cowboys.

After Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs, head coach Nick Sirianni had high praise for Hurts, calling his game against Kansas City, "one of the best performances” he’s ever seen.


Hurts finished Sunday’s matchup with Patrick Mahomes, 32 of 38 passing, for 387 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions. Hurts averaged 8.1 yards per completion, and also added 47 rushing yards on 8 attempts.

I mean this is probably a stretch but let's just consider this for a second. 

Hurts was playing behind a makeshift OL missing 4 starters and playing with a RT who's not played much in the NFL and was activated from IR this week. 

He's playing with young receivers who besides Smith (who's the rookie) all have limitations. 

He's playing for a play caller that doesn't seem to want to run the ball to help the team at all. 

Oh and he was in a shootout with a future HoF QB who's looking like he's going to smash every record going. And he kept it interesting and fairly close despite knowing the defense was going to give the Chiefs another scoring drive.

All things considered I'd say he played a very good game.
