2. 38 Total Touchdowns

38 touchdowns. That's how many total scores quarterback Jalen Hurts has piled up in the 2023 season. Hurts may have taken a step back from last year, but the Oklahoma product is still one of the top signal callers in the league.

Hurts brings such a different element to the Eagles' offense cause of his athleticism which allows him to pick up yards with his legs. The 25-year-old uses his solid accuracy to make throws on all three levels of the football field. Hurts is 11th in the NFL in passing yards (3,803), tied for 12th in passing touchdowns (23), and ninth in QBR (61.6).

Furthermore, Hurts is such a force in short-yardage situations for Philadelphia. The 2020 second-round pick is currently tied for second in the league in rushing touchdowns (15) with 601 rushing yards.

He's gone over 250 passing yards in eight games thus far. Hurts has finished with at least 40 rushing yards and one score in another four outings in 2023. In addition, the franchise QB displayed the lights aren't too bright for him in high-pressure matchups.

During the 2022 postseason, Hurts finished with 579 passing yards and eight total touchdowns, saving his best performance for the biggest stage. In the Super Bowl LVIII loss to the Chiefs, Hurts went 27 of 38 for 304 yards and one score. He also added 70 rushing yards and another three touchdowns.
