Week 14 will be the most interesting 2020 Philadelphia Eagles game yet.

Alrighty fans, as the Philadelphia Eagles‘ Week 14 matchup versus the New Orleans Saints approaches, the Birds have had an exciting and head-spinning week as far as roster changeups and overall news. As most fans know, Carson Wentz won’t be the starter in Week 14. The reigns have been giving to rookie quarterback Jalen Hurts, and that has sparked a lot of controversy throughout the week.

The news also overshadowed some other roster changes that have occurred this week: guard Jamon Brown being released (finally), and the signing of a former quarterback the Birds intend to try out as a tight end. Thanks to head coach Doug Pederson’s press conference on the Friday leading up to Week 14’s game, we now know Jason Peters’ season may and career as an Eagle might be over.

Here at ITI, we speak for most Eagles fans when we say this season has become painful to watch. Seriously, how much fun has it been to watch Carson Wentz get worked game in and game out or watching the offensive line, particularly Jason Peters, get bodied on almost every snap? Fear not if you’re a Birds fan. This week, you have another reason to watch Eagles football again.

Though he has had question marks surrounding him since his days as a collegiate standout, Jalen Hurts is getting his first-ever NFL start in Week 14. Is getting that start versus a defense that’s currently number one the likely scenario? Probably not, but that’s life in the NFL.

Is there ever a perfect scenario to start your rookie quarterback? It will be nice to see what the rookie is capable of, but if you’re a little hazy with the resume, ITI has your back. The clip comes courtesy of JustBombsProductions’ official YouTube channel.

Okay, if you weren’t excited before this video, you should be excited now. The kid has some juice, does he not? Let’s talk about Philly’s next game now.
