We’ve been trying to tell you this all season. Maybe now you’ll listen. Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts is the NFL’s Most Valuable Player. Deal with it.

His two-week absence following his Week 15 injury versus the Chicago Bears didn’t debunk that theory. It proved it. If you can’t see that, we can’t help you!

Jalen completed 17 of his first 22 passes. That resulted in 183 yards passing and a touchdown. His toss to A.J. Brown was truly a thing of beauty! Take one more look at that one.

QB1 added another 63 yards in the first half on the ground with his legs. His only misstep was a fumble. That one led to an immediate Kansas City Chiefs touchdown.

Hey, in every game a little rain must fall. A ten-point lead by the Birds at halftime is ideal.

The Eagles fans in attendance are getting the full Jalen Hurts experience, but so far, most are happy in Glendale, Arizona.

Let’s be honest. Jalen is writing a beautiful story on the NFL’s grandest stage, but it wouldn’t be a Jalen Hurts story without some adversity, right?

The scoop and score by the Chiefs helped keep Kansas City in the game early, but it’s clear who the better team on the field is. If Philly doesn’t beat Philly, it stands to reason that K.C. won’t be able to get the job done.

QB1 is putting on a show though. Take a look at his other two scores.

At the time of this story’s publishing, the Birds seemingly have control of this. They’ll need to keep their foot on the gas, but again, if they don’t beat themselves, they should be fine.

We love Mahomes. We truly do. We still think it’s ridiculous with how the voting for MVP shook out, but ‘Jalen Hurts, Super Bowl MVP’ will suit us just fine. Something tells us that payday is coming.

Hot. It was a catch... period. light
