Philadelphia Eagles signal caller Jalen Hurts made the franchise record bucks during the Eagles 27-17 victory over the Washington Football Team on Tuesday night when he broke Michael Vick’s franchise record for most single-season rush touchdowns by a quarterback.
Vick set the mark back in 2010.
“I know we’re at .500 for the first time this year. It’s a big deal, but I know the job isn’t done — nowhere near from done,” Hurts said, according to ESPN’s Tim McManus. “We know what we want to accomplish. I said it to the guys: We just have to have that mentality of not being denied.”
Hurts night wasn’t all roses, as cameras caught Eagles coach Nick Sirianni yelling in Hurts direction on the sideline following his second turnover, but Sirianni spoke about the incident following the game.
“Jalen’s dad coached him hard. My dad coached me hard. I think Jalen responds to tough coaching. He likes tough coaching. I wasn’t going to back down on him. I thought he was careless with the football and I let him know that. We’re just honest with each other,” Sirianni said. “He played a great football game today — one of the best games I’ve seen him play. What an unbelievable job by him of flushing [the early turnovers] and moving on.”
