NFL MVP Odds: How does Jalen Hurts fare after week 13?
The Philadelphia Eagles stormed past the Tennessee Titans last night in what may well have been the most complete showing of the season. Despite some sloppy penalties, the Eagles offense rallied to an explosive victory on the back of some more Jalen Hurts heroics. He was pulled from the game in the 4th quarter having already put up 380 yards of passing, 3 touchdowns, 0 interceptions, a rushing touchdown, and 12 yards on the ground. But how did that performance impact his standing in the MVP race.

At this point in the season though, it would be hard to make a case for anyone not named Jalen Hurts. The award isn’t for the best quarterback, it’s for the most valuable player. Hurts has been incremental to the Eagles’ stunning 2022 season and while you can make the argument that their schedule has been light, getting past the Titans in such a convincing fashion is one way to silence the critics.
Jalen Hurts has been nothing short of outstanding this year in every category. As a passer, as a rusher, and as the centrifugal force in this offense. It doesn’t matter how you slice it, Jalen Hurts has been the league’s most valuable player at this point of the season. If the Eagles begin to falter, or the Chiefs rally on to decimate their upcoming opponents, then that may change. But the Eagles have overcome every challenge bestowed upon them, thanks in large part to the rapid growth of Jalen Hurts.
