Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts put together an outstanding performance in his first start, but afterward he deflected the credit while accepting blame.
Hurts said in a post-game interview on FOX that he doesn’t believe he deserves the bulk of the praise for the way the Eagles played.
“It’s not all about me,” Hurts said. “This is a great team and we have a lot of great players, and I’m just so excited we got this win today. We worked really hard this week.”
Hurts criticized himself, unprompted, for a late fumble, saying he still has things he needs to work on. Both on the field and afterward, Hurts handled himself exactly the way a leader should.
