Jalen Hurts has eclipsed a passer rating of 100 in three consecutive games.

Some of the experts are saying the Eagles' rushing attack takes a hit if Jalen Hurts doesn't present the threat of running the ball. If he keeps tossing the rock around as he has done, we promise you no one is going to care very much.

Philly's QB1 has eclipsed a passer rating of 100 in three consecutive games. His season-long rating is 97. His QBR is 65.9.

Don't look now, but he is taking the next step as a passer. If he can limit the turnovers as he did for most of last season, this offense elevates even further.

The Chiefs are second in the NFL in sacks.

The Eagles will need to bring their A-game when the Chiefs bring their pass rush. K.C. has notched 31 sacks. That's tied for second in the NFL. Their six quarterback hits rank sixth league-wide.

Bonus: The Eagles have converted 19 of 24 quarterback sneak attempts.

Don't forget about the 'Brotherly Shove' if the Eagles are in a pinch during short-yardage situations. Philly has converted 19 of 24 QB sneaks into first downs or points. They have scored six TDs on QB sneaks. No other team has converted more than 11 first downs on QB sneaks.
