Three rushing scores in win
Hurts completed 13 of 24 passes for 147 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions and added 69 yards and three rushing touchdowns on 18 carries in the Eagles' 40-29 win over the Saints on Sunday.
Hurts once again turned in a relatively subdued performance through the air, falling short of 200 passing yards for the fourth straight game and sixth in the last seven overall. However, the athletic second-year signal-caller remained free of turnovers, managed to top 50 rushing yards for fifth straight contest and furnished his third effort with multiple touchdowns on the ground of the campaign. Hurts' statistical downturn through the air remains somewhat confounding considering he threw for between 264 and 387 yards in three of his first four games of the season, and it can certainly be costly in games when he can't offset it with some strong rushing production. However, he'll remain a highly viable option in all formats for a Week 12 divisional clash against the Giants.
