Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts set the NFL single-season record for most touchdowns in a season by a QB
Quarterback Jalen Hurts scored on a 1-yard “tush push” in the first quarter of the Eagles’ 33-25 Christmas Day victory Monday night, setting the NFL single-season record for most touchdowns in a season by a QB.
With the win over the Giants, the Eagles moved back into first place in the NFC East division, one game ahead of the Dallas Cowboys with two games left in the regular season. Both the Cowboys and Eagles have clinched spots in this year’s NFL Playoffs, but the division, which comes with a home playoff game in the Wild Card round, is still up for grabs.
Hurts and the Eagles have the advantage as their remaining two games are at home against the Arizona Cardinals and the New York Giants at Metlife Stadium. Meanwhile, the Cowboys will host the Detroit Lions, who have won the NFC North for the first time since 1993, before finishing the season against the Washington Commanders.
Hurts is one of several Black quarterbacks that will play in the NFL playoffs this year, including Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith could join them, but his team still has work to do to clinch a playoff spot.
