Here are a few final thoughts on the Jalen Hurts vs. Dak Prescott quarterback duel.

Philly's starting field general has been impressive running the ball this year. There's no doubt about it. Hurts turnovers, however, must be limited. His ten interceptions and four fumbles lost are the most we have seen during his four-year career, and the Eagles have four games remaining AFTER Week 14's Sunday Night Football game.

Hurts will likely surpass the 22 passing touchdowns he totaled last season. He has a good chance of doing so versus Dallas. The MVP race is seemingly more competitive and tighter than it was last season. If Jalen stays healthy, he'll remain in the running.

Unlike last year, he isn't the clear-cut favorite, nor does he seem to be viewed as the most deserving. The turnovers hurt his argument. Other QBs have better passing numbers.

Prescott's interception total slots him next to some of the game's best at taking care of the football. Brock Purdy has thrown six picks, Lamar Jackson and C.J. Stroud have both thrown five. Dak is also credited with only one fumble, one that his teammates recovered.

Fans of other clubs will hate to admit it, especially Eagles fans, but Prescott looks to be one of the favorites to win league MVP as of now. His passing numbers and lack of turnovers are among the best in the league among quarterbacks.

Dak has thrown for 3,131 passing yards and 22 touchdowns versus eight interceptions in 12 career games versus Philadelphia. He owns a quarterback rating of 100.8 and an 8-4 record.

Despite their 10-2 record, Philly's pass defense has struggled, but they came up big when it mattered most the last time around.

The Eagles have a golden opportunity to pull out a win on Sunday. It is a must-win game for both teams and Philly's final game versus a team currently being viewed as a Super Bowl contender. It's time to again prove that the Birds are one of football's best teams.
