The Philadelphia Eagles lose to the Kansas City chiefs 38-35 in Super Bowl LVII. The Eagles played a great game on both sides of the ball, but a costly penalty late in the 4th quarter set up the Chiefs for a go-ahead game-winning field goal. Jalen Hurts spearheaded the offense setting a Super Bowl record for rushing touchdowns by a Quarterback (3), throwing for 304 passing yards, and threw a touchdown to wide receiver A.J. Brown
Overall, the Eagles have weathered the storm from critics, following last years early exit in the divisional round of the playoffs. Going undefeated through week 8, the Eagles managed to record an NFL best 14 wins and three losses in the regular season.
Jalen Hurts was in question in terms of being a franchise tag player around this time last year. In his third season, Hurts managed to lead all quarterbacks in rushing touchdowns (13) and ranked in the top five in passer rating, total quarterback rating, and yards per pass attempt.
“I had a purpose before people had an opinion.” said Hurts in a press conference. After a Super Bowl MVP performance this year, it should be safe to say Philadelphia has found it’s guy.
