While Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson are generally talked about as the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the NFL right now, Jalen Hurts belongs in that conversation as well.

Hurts proved it by delivering an epic performance on Sunday Night Football during Week 12 that few players have equaled.

Hurts led the Philadelphia Eagles to a 40-33 win over the Green Bay Packers with both his arm and his legs, racking up 153 passing yards and 2 touchdowns through the air along with a season-high 157 rushing yards on the ground.

That marked only the fourth time in NFL history that a quarterback surpassed 150 passing yards and 150 rushing yards in the same game, joining Jackson, Michael Vick and Colin Kaepernick.

Hurts' historic performance helped boost his MVP case, as he currently has the second-best MVP odds (+350) on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL MVP odds behind only Patrick Mahomes. His outstanding play has propelled the Eagles to an NFL-leading 10-1 record so far, positioning Philadelphia for a potential Super Bowl run.

As it stands, the Eagles are tied with the San Francisco 49ers for the third-best championship odds (+650) on FanDuel Sportsbook's Super Bowl odds.
