Even though he hasn’t been playing well, Jalen Hurts has gotten the Philadelphia Eagles off to a 3-0 start, and they’re hoping to take off and return to the Super Bowl this winter.
Last season, the Eagles held a 10-point halftime lead in the Super Bowl, only to give it up and lose on a late field goal by Harrison Butker.
There is a long way to go before the start of this season’s playoffs and, per NBC Sports Philadelphia, Hurts says he doesn’t think he’ll ever be satisfied and that he always wants to get better.

So far this season, Hurts’ numbers aren’t that good — although he has completed 67.7 percent of his passes, he has thrown three interceptions against three touchdown passes and has a poor passer rating of 84.5.
On Monday in Philly’s 25-11 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he went just 23 of 37 and had two interceptions.
It was their running game that did a good amount of the damage, as they gained 201 yards on the ground, with 130 of them coming from D’Andre Swift, their new starting running back.
Through three games, Swift has 308 rushing yards, which is second in the NFL behind the San Francisco 49ers’ Christian McCaffrey, and his 6.8 yards per rush is also second in the league.
Hurts will have to start to step up his game soon, as the Eagles will play the Miami Dolphins, Dallas Cowboys, Kansas City Chiefs, Buffalo Bills, San Francisco 49ers, and the Dallas Cowboys twice from Week 7 through Week 14.
That will be a gauntlet that could indicate how ready the Eagles are to win the world championship this winter.
