Jalen Hurts' overtime heroics for the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 12 against Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills are still the talk of the town. Philly head coach Nick Sirianni even compared Hurts' game-winning touchdown to Philadelphia Phillies star outfielder Bryce Harper's walk-off home run, per Martin Frank of the Delaware News Journal.
“That's a play I'll remember for a long time,” Sirianni said before comparing it to a Bryce Harper walkoff HR. Sirianni added that he can't remember being a part of a walkoff in the NFL.
Jalen Hurts put on a show in Eagles' win vs. Bills
The Eagles looked as though they were about to suffer a rare loss when the Bills got ahead of Philadelphia by 10 points at the end of the third period. But Hurts wasn't one to surrender, as he had the Eagles coming out like a house on fire in the final quarter.
Hurts threw two touchdown passes for the first scores of the fourth quarter and then led Philadelphia to a game-tying drive that was punctuated by a Jake Elliott field goal which forced overtime. In OT, the Eagles had their backs against the wall again after Tyler Bass put the Bills in front with a field goal. But Hurts made sure that the Eagles and the teams' fans would all go with smiles on their faces when he rushed for the game-winning touchdown.
Having a quarterback like Jalen Hurts this season has been a tremendous help for the Eagles, who improved to 10-1 after the win over the Bills. On the season, Hurts has passed for 2,697 yards and 18 touchdowns with 10 interceptions and also rushed for 410 yards and 11 touchdowns.
