Hurts talked about the turnover and getting the ball back in his hands for the Eagles’ next drive.
The only turnover of the game came at the 9:39 minute mark of the second quarter. Jalen Hurts fumbled the ball on the Eagles’ 44-yard line. K.C. linebacker Nick Bolton scooped it up and ran 36 yards to the end zone.
Philly’s quarterback talked about it in the post-game presser. Despite trying everything he could to protect the ball, it slipped out of his hands. As you might expect, he accepted accountability.
"I always hold myself to a very high standard in everything that I do. Obviously, I try and control the things that I can, not just the ball every play, so I just try and protect it. But, it hurt us. You never know what play it will be, but it hurt us. You look back and reflect on some of the things that you could have done more, you could have tried and done something to change the outcome of the game. That’s the way it works."
He was asked also asked how it felt to have head coach Nick Sirianni put the ball back right back in his hands again. Do you think the turnover fazed the young leader of the Eagles? Think again.
"I don’t think about any of those things. You have to treat every play independently, and that’s my mentality and that’s my reflection on it. It happened in the past. I was just trying to stay in the moment and be present."
Don’t expect Jalen to dwell on this loss long, as he will take this as a challenge to get better.
