The Philadelphia Eagles feel great going into its NFC playoff matchup against the New York Giants.

Eagles’ head coach Nick Sirianni will have his starting quarterback ready for the contest. Jalen Hurts, a former Alabama quarterback, has had an MVP caliber season in the National Football League.

He suffered a SC joint sprain to his shoulder against the Chicago Bears, but a report from Ari Meirov states Hurts is “fully cleared” from his injury.

He is set to begin preparation for the Giants as Philadelphia wants to make a Super Bowl push.

Hurts has 3,701 passing yards and 35 total touchdowns. He guided the Eagles to a 14-3 record, an NFC East Division title, a first-round bye, and home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.

Philadelphia and New York will battle on Saturday in the NFC Divisional round of the playoffs.
