Local Heroes: On a cold Wednesday morning, Eagles fans stood outside the NovaCare Training Complex with a ‘Run The Ball’ sign
Good morning, Philadelphia. This is a quick reminder that not all heroes wear capes. In…
The Eagles shutout Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs in the second half of Monday night’s game to improve to 9-1 on the season.
Led by Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia leaned on the rushing attack to overcome a 10-point halftime deficit and hand the Chiefs their third loss of the year.
It wasn’t the prettiest victory, but Hurts is making a habit of finding ways to win games. Here’s a look at his current resume following Week 11.
The Streak Continues
Jalen Hurts has now won his last 13 regular season games vs. teams entering .500 or above, the longest streak by a QB since 1950. Monday night’s win broke a tie with Peyton Manning (12 wins, 2008-2010) and Vinny Testaverde (12 wins, 1998-2000).
Following Monday night’s win, Jalen Hurts has now won seven straight games when trailing by 10+ points, the most by any QB in NFL history. No other QB has more then four straight.
Hurts is the youngest QB in NFL history to start 9-1 or better in back-to-back seasons and is only the fourth QB ever to accomplish this feat. Peyton Manning (05-06), John Elway (96-97), and Jim Kelly (90-91) were the others.
Making Mahomes Human
Patrick Mahomes has been untouchable at home in the fall months throughout his career, until last night. Monday night was Mahomes’ first home loss in November or December in the last five years. Mahomes is now 36-6 in the months of November and December.
Conquering Bye-Week Andy Reid
Andy Reid is the most successful coach in history after a bye week, owning a 27-3 recording heading into Week 11, including a mark of 13-1 as a member of the Eagles and an 8-2 record with the Chiefs.
Philadelphia handed Big Red his fourth loss following a bye on Monday night. Nick Sirianni is now 3-0 following a bye in his career.
