Jalen Hurts report card: The best and worst from Eagles Week 1 victory
Well, no one’s perfect. Here are Jalen Hurts’ worst throws from Week 1’s game.
On third-and-five with 2:49 remaining in the first, Hurts again found his favorite target on the afternoon, A.J. Brown, who was wide open down the left sideline. The throw was too low, which was surprising because Hurts had time to set his feet, but Number 11 made a nice adjustment to make the reception.
Had there been some air under it, Brown probably could have gained a few more yards, but we won’t complain too much as, again, the line to gain was reached.
As beautiful as the 54-yard bomb to A.J. was, there was a chance that we could have been talking about it as a wasted play.
Following the bomb to Brown, on second-and-five with 14 seconds remaining in the half, QB1 has another bad delivery… But, we’re glad that he did.
A low throw to Kenneth Gainwell resulted in an incompletion, and thank goodness for that as it appears he would have been stopped short of the goal line. Had that happened, in all likelihood, there was no way the Eagles would have gotten the field-goal team on the field for a last-second attempt with no timeouts remaining.
As good as Hurts was, this was a bad decision. Fortunately, a bad throw helped the Eagles avoid disaster.
