Philadelphia is flying with Jalen Hurts at quarterback.

He got his first career NFL win as a starter over New Orleans, and fans want to see more.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Eagles decided to give Hurts another start this week against Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals.

He completed 17 of 30 passes against the Saints and totaled 273 yards with one touchdown.

Hurts guided the Eagles to a 24-21 victory and some people believe he might be able to save the season.

If he leads the team on a four-game winning streak, Philadelphia will end the regular season campaign at 7-8-1. It will need help to make a playoff push, but anything is possible. This has been a weird year in the realm of athletics, and the Eagles are rolling the dice with Hurts.
