I kinda love how Jalen Hurts is all business and never gives reporters more than he has to.
It probably drives the reporters nuts, but I enjoy it.

This is exactly what the Eagles did to the Cowboys in Philly last year when Cooper Rush pulled them to 20-17 in the fourth quarter … and Jalen Hurt led the Eagles on an endless TD drive that iced it. That’s what Jalen does best. But that won’t work at Dallas.

Brown discussed Hurts’ warrior mentality after the game. He did not put his quarterback’s business out there, but he knew Hurts was dealing with an injury. Brown is thankful he has a quarterback who will battle through anything to play with his teammates.
