Inside the Article:
On Sunday afternoon, Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles hosted Brock Purdy and the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game. Unfortunately, for the 49ers, Purdy suffered an elbow injury in the first quarter, which pretty much ended any chance they had to advance to the Super Bowl. Hurts, on the other hand, had an outstanding game, and while doing so, he set a new NFL record by rushing for his 15th touchdown of the season (including the playoffs).
Why it Matters
Despite not playing in two regular season games due to an injury, Hurts still broke the NFL's all-time rushing touchdown record for quarterbacks by scoring No. 15 on Sunday against the 49ers.
- Hurts rushed for 39 yards and a touchdown on the day
- With Hurts as their starter in 2022, the Eagles are now 16-1
