Coming into the season, the biggest question surrounding the Philadelphia Eagles has been what to expect from Jalen Hurts. The franchise made some notable moves surrounding the quarterback and providing him with the tools needed for his success. However, there was lingering concern about whether he was ready to evolve into the true franchise quarterback the organization hoped. Through the first three games of the season, the third-year quarterback has more than answered the call.
While it is still extremely early in the season, Hurts currently ranks third in the NFL in passing yards. He has completed 66 of his 98 pass attempts for 916 yards. The Alabama product has thrown for four touchdowns and also leads the NFL with 9.3 yards per pass attempt and 13.9 yards per completion. This ability to throw the ball down the field has been one of the biggest question marks heading into the season, and he has given a clear answer to start the season. Hurts has not hesitated to target his receivers down the field and flashes impressive ability with his arm this season. The former second-round pick has also added 167 yards and three touchdowns on the ground as well.
