For those who have an MVP vote, consider Jalen Hurts’ incredible performance on Sunday, as he staged a masterful rally in the second half to secure a thrilling 37-34 overtime win for the Eagles over the Bills at the Linc. Despite a lackluster first half and facing a 10-point deficit at halftime, Hurts displayed remarkable resilience, eventually completing 14 of 20 passes for 167 yards and contributing to three touchdown passes, along with a rushing TD.
In the current season, the Eagles have continued to live on the edge during games, often finding themselves in one-possession situations during the fourth quarter. Remarkably, they are on a winning streak despite the historical impossibility of consistently winning close games. Jalen Hurts’ ability to remain unwavered in the face of adversity has undoubtedly been a significant factor in the Eagles’ success.
This past win against the Bills marks only the third time in the franchise’s history where the Eagles have managed back-to-back victories after trailing by double digits at halftime. However, the Eagles’ defense allowed an enormous 505 yards to the Bills, posing some concerning aspects that need to be addressed.
The ground game emerged as a significant asset for the Eagles with D’Andre Swift making some pivotal runs, yet there’s a need to maintain a better balance between running and passing. Furthermore, DeVonta Smith’s recent performance has been stellar, supporting the team in significant ways when they most needed it.
The dramatic game-winning touchdown by Hurts, along with the defense’s ability to stop Josh Allen, as shown by Jordan Davis, and Jack Driscoll’s impressive performance in his first start of the year exemplify how the Eagles managed to come out on top. Overall, the Eagles’ ability to make plays in crucial moments and turn the tide of the game is truly remarkable and worthy of recognition.
