“I think he’s arguably one of the best coaches to ever coach this game,” Hurts told reporters. “The consistency he’s been able to have and the production he’s been able to have. Obviously, how he impacts people from afar. I have a lot of respect for that. Nice words from him.”
Much like Eagles coach Nick Sirianni, Hurts will play against the Patriots for the first time in his career. The QB didn’t play in 2021 when Philly and New England played during the preseason.
