The Eagles suffered a stunning loss to the Seahawks on Monday Night Football, letting Seattle stage a dramatic comeback to give Philly a third straight loss.

It was a gut punch for the Eagles, now 10-4, especially after Jalen Hurts battled illness to play. His late interception put a dagger into Philadelphia's hopes though, and Hurts was not happy after the game.

In fact, Hurts made some bizarre comments, seemingly throwing his teammates under the bus.

He lamented a lack of execution, noting the team has been talking about getting everyone on the same page all year long. His most damning quote came next.

"I don't think we're all...committed enough," said Hurts. "It's a challenge we have to embrace."

When asked a follow-up question about what he meant, Hurts stumbled and said he doesn't have a dictionary. It was an unusual misstep for the typically poised Hurts and the Eagles have a lot of questions to answer moving forward.

Hurts finished the game completing only 17 of 31 passes for 143 yards and two interceptions, though he added 82 yards and two scores on the ground. His illness and the rainy weather conditions likely contributed to his tough day through the air, but it was disappointing nonetheless.
