Jalen Hurts bolstered his MVP case for the 2023 NFL season Sunday night when he put the Philadelphia Eagles on his back and led them to a 37-34 come-from-behind victory over Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills. Hurts showed no sign of quitting, as he stepped up to deliver one notable play after another, especially in the clutch, to help Philly secure the thrilling win.

“One-hundred percent, that dude should be [MVP],” Eagles right tackle Jordan Mailata stated following the game (h/t Tim McManus of ESPN). “I don't know the requirements, but I know he's got the best f—ing record out of all the MVP candidates.”
