Philadelphia Eagles fans learned a few things from Hurts’s debut.

A lot of questions have surrounded the Philadelphia Eagles this season. Who’s at fault? Are jobs in jeopardy? Who is more to blame? Those are just a few conversation starters that people are discussing at great lengths.

On paper, this was a team that Birds fans believed could win the NFC East, if not more. Then, just like that, boom! The franchise imploded. For weeks, Birds fans watched their team regress at an alarming rate with no end in sight, until the second half of Week 13’s game. That’s when the decision was made to place quarterback Carson Wentz on the bench and insert Jalen Hurts into the game.

Now, Hurts didn’t have what one might consider a Pro-Bowl caliber game in Week 14, but the entire team played with confidence and a spark that they haven’t displayed all season. With so many questions surrounding this franchise, real answers could be on the way. In the meantime, let’s dive into what we learned from Hurt’s NFL debut.
