NFL: Jalen Hurts propels Eagles to 24-7 win over Vikings

Jalen Hurts delivered an inspiring performance Monday night, leading the Philadelphia Eagles to a 24-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

It’s the second victory in as many games at the start of the season for the Eagles, who defeated the Detroit Lions in the opener.

Hurts had 333 passing yards, completing 26 of 31 passing attempts. He was also dominant on the ground, collecting 57 yards on 11 carries, including two for the major in the first half.

His only blunder came with seven minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, when his short pass to Kenneth Gainwell ricocheted off the hands of his opponent Jordan Hicks.

His vis-à-vis Kirk Cousins ​​was the victim of three interceptions, including two committed at the expense of Darius Slay Jr. at the entrance to the end zone.

It is therefore a hard return to earth for Minnesota (1-1), which won its opening game 23 to 7 against the Green Bay Packers.

After a game in which he had five 20-yard catches against Green Bay last week, star receiver Justin Jefferson had none against the Eagles’ tight defensive coverage.

Despite being targeted 12 times by Cousins, Jefferson was limited to 48 receiving yards.

Thanks to his productive night’s work, Hurts became the third player in history to total more than 300 yards through the air, more than 50 yards rushing, and multiple rushing touchdowns in Monday Night Football. .

The other two quarterbacks who have experienced this kind of match are Michael Vick, in 2010, as well as Cam Newton, in 2012.
