Jalen Hurts completed the most improbable of endings. The last time I did a game review of Hurts, it…hurt (#noregrets). 11 months prior, he was benched in the same stadium, against the same team.
Hurts endured that benching and the subsequence offseason full of people speculating about what his motives were, about how he felt, about what he would do.
While he couldn’t tune that out completely, he just kept on. Hurts worked with a dedicated QB coach for the first time in his college career; and, after it became inevitable that Tua Tagovailoa would not relinquish the starting role he seized in the national championship, Hurts kept on working, trying to improve.
And improve he did. Hurts heads into the playoffs having completed 74.6% of his passes, averaging 11.3 yards per attempt, with a 4-1 touchdown to interception ratio, and a 202.72 passer rating.
