Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts is widely regarded as one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in all of football. He is also one of the best goal-line threats in the NFL and showed that off in historic fashion on Monday night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Hurts came into the game with 28 rushing touchdowns in just his fourth NFL season. Much of this is thanks to the Eagles’ vaunted QB sneak play where they have a player push Hurts from behind, a move that has been nearly unstoppable to most of the Eagles’ opponents in short-yardage situations.

The Eagles pulled this play out in a big moment in Monday’s game. In the third quarter, they opted to go for it on fourth down and goal from the Buccaneers one-yard line. And Hurts was able to keep it himself on fourth down and push the Eagles lead to 20-3.

This play marked the 29th rushing touchdown of Hurts’ career, which puts him in a class of his own at the quarterback position as a rusher. Hurts now has the most rushing touchdowns of any quarterback in their first 50 games in NFL history, surpassing Cam Newton for this honor.

Fans took notice of this achievement and praised Hurts on social media.

More importantly for the Eagles as a team, they were able to continue their winning ways on Monday night with a 25-11 victory over the Buccaneers to advance to 3-0 on the year.

Hurts and the Eagles will look to keep their undefeated season going in Week 4 when they face off against the Washington Commanders.
