Jalen Hurts: We left money on the table
Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts became the first player in NFL history to score at least 500 yards and 150 yards on his first two starts, but he didn't celebrate when Sunday's game against the Cardinals came to an end.
Hurts failed to get the Eagles into the end zone in the fourth quarter, making them 33-26 losers and causing the rookie to turn down any praise that got in his way. Hurts said "the things you applaud me for weren't enough" to win the game and that was his biggest win since his second NFL start.
"We left money on the table, missed opportunities and had self-inflicted wounds," said Hurts of Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer. "I might be less interested in hearing some of the 'young' stuff, the 'second start' stuff, the 'beginner' stuff. We have a standard that we want to play by. Personally, I have a standard that I play by would like to. "
Eagles head coach Doug Pederson wouldn't name Hurts as a starter for Week 16 after Sunday's game, but it seems certain he'll snap shots in Dallas next Sunday even if four touchdowns against Arizona weren't his set standard achieve yourself.
