Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts has seen his uniform make it into the Pro Football Hall of Fame for accomplishing this feat.
The Philadelphia Eagles had an incredible 2022 season that saw them get close to winning their second-ever Lombardi Trophy. The roster was stacked by general manager Howie Roseman, bringing in some big-time players to put them over the top in the NFC. But plenty of credit can be given to quarterback Jalen Hurts, who played at an NFL MVP-caliber level not just in the regular season, but also in the playoffs and Super Bowl 57.
In just his third season, Hurts is heading to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Well, sort of.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame’s official Twitter account announced that Hurts’ jersey and pants he wore in Week 14 against the New York Giants will be on display.
In that game, Hurts recorded his 10th rushing touchdown of the season, which made him the first quarterback in history to rush for 10-plus touchdowns in consecutive seasons.

After that game, Hurts went on to rush for three more touchdowns in the regular-season, all of which occurred in Week 15 against the Chicago Bears.
Once the playoffs began, the Eagles had a rather easy path to Super Bowl 57, as they blew out the Giants in the Divisional Round and the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game. In Super Bowl 57, Hurts put on one of the best performances by a quarterback in the big game’s history.
In the 38-35 loss, Hurts threw for 304 yards and one touchdown while completing 27-of-38 pass attempts, while also rushing for 70 yards and three touchdowns on 15 carries. Hurts officially became the first quarterback in history to throw for one touchdown and rush for two or more scores in a Super Bowl. Not to mention, his 70 rushing yards were the most recorded by a quarterback in a Super Bowl, with the previous record being 64 yards recorded by Steve McNair.
The Eagles saw a lot of talent leave via free agency this offseason. But, the roster is still relatively strong, and they will have a chance as long as Hurts is starting for them.
