Week 9's Philadelphia Eagles game versus the Dallas Cowboys was loaded with storylines. Hey, what else is new, but there's no way we can witness some history without giving it a mention.
Philly's QB1, Jalen Hurts, entered Sunday's divisional clash tied with a franchise legend, Randall Cunningham. He now sits atop the Eagles record book having set a new standard that we expected him to.
Jalen Hurts, thanks to the Eagles' Brotherly Shove, is the owner of the most touchdowns by a QB in franchise history.
This just in. The Brotherly Shove is unstoppable. Early in the first quarter, FOX's play-by-play announcer for Week 9's Game of the Week, Kevin Burkhardt questioned whether or not the Birds would attempt a fourth-down attempt in their own territory.
Bless his heart. What in the heck did you think they'd do? Philly did indeed elect to pick up the first down. Wouldn't you know it? They managed to pick it up easily.
Later in the second quarter, facing a goal-to-go situation, Hurts tied the game at 14 points and assumed a franchise record for himself.
With that, QB1 passes Randall Cunningham with the most TD rushes by a quarterback in franchise history (33). Something tells us he'll add a few more before he hangs his cleats up and calls it a career.
Here's something of note:
Let's hope that he feels well enough to finish this one. He took an ugly-looking shot on the knee courtesy of Demarcus Lawrence at the end of the first half.
He finished the second quarter in an upright position and jogged into the locker room under his own power, but he's been dealing with a knee issue, so of course all eyes will be on how he responds physically.
