QB Jalen Hurts – The Eagles’ QB1 was literally perfect by NFL standards, finishing with a 158.3 passer rating during his only drive of the night, a 6-for-6 performance for 80 yards culminating with a 22-yard touchdown pass to Dallas Goedert.
Hurts previously took it in on the ground as well, only to be called back on a Jordan Mailata holding penalty. A scary moment came when Quincy Williams delivered a late hit out of bounds on the QB, one that had Nick Sirianni screaming across the sideline at Jets coach Robert Saleh.
LB Kyzir White – The book on the new Eagles’ linebacker is that he’s great in coverage and he showed that off in the first quarter, undercutting a poor Zach Wilson pass and setting up the Philadelphia offense with a short field, ultimately resulting in a one-yard Jason Huntley TD run to push the lead to 14-0.
“I was just a whole player and I was playing visual on [Jets QB Zach Wilson],” White said. “I saw it in his demeanor where he was going to go with the ball. Just tried to sprint to it and make a play on it.”
