Jalen Hurts has only lost two games since the Philadelphia Eagles' bye week in 2021

Quarterback Jalen Hurts had 16 career starts under his belt when the Philadelphia Eagles reached their bye in Week 14 of the 2021 season. We'll consider that a full season. What he has done since then has been nothing short of uncanny.

Hurts had a 6-10 record as a starter and did not play in the Eagles' Week 13 matchup versus the New York Jets due to an ankle injury. In Hurts' 29 starts since that 2021 bye week, he has a record of 27 wins against only two losses. Again... He has been nothing short of uncanny.

His two losses since Week 14 of 2021 are also less than half the losses that Joe Burrow, Patrick Mahomes, Dak Prescott, Lamar Jackson, and Josh Allen have posted during the same span. Hurts has also thrown for 7,107 passing yards and has 71 total touchdowns in that stretch.

The three games that Hurts has missed over this stretch have all resulted in losses for the Eagles. That proves his leadership and ability are indispensable to his team. They always have a chance to win when he is under center.

With a 73.3% career winning percentage through his first 45 starts, Jalen Hurts is on pace to be one of the winningest quarterbacks in NFL history. While the Eagles' roster may house future Hall-of-Famers, it is hard to imagine this team having the same success with a different quarterback leading its offense.

His presence at home may be too much for the 49ers to handle on Sunday. Ladies and gentlemen, the Niners are in trouble.
