Scores twice on ground
Hurts completed 22 of 37 passes for 198 yards and an interception, and rushed nine times for 30 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 21-18 win over the Panthers. He also had a successful two-point conversion pass.
Hurts endured a nightmarish first half, passing for just 74 yards on 24 attempts while seeing a shotgun snap sail over his head and roll out of the end zone for a safety. To make matters worse, the signal-caller had a badly overthrown interception in the third quarter, which came after his team lost another fumble the possession prior. Despite all those negative developments, though, Hurts rallied to close the third, hitting Quez Watkins for 53 yards before sneaking in himself for a touchdown. Hurts then proceeded to run in from six yards for another score to put the Eagles ahead in the fourth, after which he completed a two-point conversion pass to boot. In the end, it wasn't a pretty performance from Hurts, who struggled in particular as a passer, but his impact from in close on the ground helped punctuate Philadelphia's comeback victory.
