Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts had himself a game on Sunday Night Football in Week 12. Hurts had a modest 153 yards through the air and 2 touchdowns, but his performance on the ground was record-setting.

Jalen Hurts Rushing Record

Hurt rushed for a whopping 157 yards against the Green Bay Packers. With this performance he broke the Eagles' franchise single-game quarterback rushing record, which was previously held by Mike Vick.

Vick is still widely regarded as the best rushing quarterback in NFL history, putting up historic numbers before offenses were really willing to lean on even the most mobile quarterbacks. Vick is the measuring stick today's rushing quarterbacks get compared against, but for Vick that comparison was to another Eagles great — Randall Cunningham.

Hurts took some time after Sunday night's game to discuss how much Vick and other past Eagles quarterbacks have meant to him and how influential they have been in shaping him into the player he is today.

Hurts is enjoying the best season of his career and it's showing in the Eagles record, now sitting at 10-1, the best record in the NFL and the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs. He has a 17-3 touchdown-to-interception ratio and a passer rating of 105.6.

The Eagles now look forward to a Week 13 matchup with the Tennessee Titans, where Philadelphia is currently a 6-point home favorite, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
