ESPN is handing Jalen Hurts the credit he deserves.

Hurts has the Philadelphia Eagles untouchable on offense with its balance in the run game and passing attack.

He torched the Pittsburgh Steelers for a career-high four touchdown passes in Sunday’s 35-13 victory for the Eagles. Hurts has 2,102 total yards, 16 touchdowns, and only two interceptions through seven games. He is completing nearly 70 percent (67%) of his passes and has four games with a passer rating of 100 or better. Hurts has also tossed 2+ touchdown passes in three matchups and his improvement as a passer has made him dangerous. Dan Orlovsky, an ESPN analyst, was an NFL quarterback for 13 years.

He is a big fan of Mac Jones and Tua Tagovailoa, but Orlovsky has the biggest praise for Hurts.

A Pro Bowl invitation is on the horizon for the former Alabama and Oklahoma quarterback. Hurts will lead Philadelphia into a matchup with the Houston Texans this week. The Eagles hope to continue to be unbeaten.
