In the world of sports, records are made to be broken. And Jalen Hurts of the Philadelphia Eagles is on the verge of entering the history books. With an impressive streak of 11 consecutive road victories as a starting quarterback, Hurts is on the cusp of joining an exclusive club of NFL legends.
If Hurts can lead the Eagles to victory against the New York Jets this Sunday, he will join the ranks of Joe Montana and Tom Brady as the only quarterbacks to achieve an astounding 12 straight road wins since the merger of the AFL and NFL in 1970.
Montana: The Road Warrior
Joe Montana, a true icon of the game, holds the record for the longest streak of road victories with an incredible 18 consecutive wins. This remarkable run spanned almost five years, starting in the final two road games of the 1988 season with the San Francisco 49ers. Montana's dominance continued in 1989, where he went undefeated in six road starts, and reached its peak with an undefeated record of 8-0 as a road starter in 1990. Although Montana's streak came to an end after being traded to the Kansas City Chiefs in 1993, his legacy as a road warrior remains unparalleled.
Brady: The Unstoppable Force
Tom Brady, often referred to as the GOAT, is known for his relentless pursuit of excellence. During his illustrious career, Brady achieved a remarkable 13 consecutive road wins from the middle of the 2016 season to late 2017. This impressive streak solidified his status as one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history and showcased his unparalleled ability to lead his team to victory, regardless of the venue.
Hurts: A Rising Star
Now, it's Jalen Hurts' turn to make his mark in history. Last year, Hurts showcased his talent by leading the Eagles to a phenomenal 14-1 record in regular-season games that he started. The team continued their winning ways with two playoff victories before falling short in the Super Bowl. This season, the Eagles have maintained their dominance, going undefeated in the five games Hurts has started.
As Jalen Hurts prepares to face the Jets this Sunday, the excitement is palpable. Can he add another victory to his already impressive streak and join the likes of Montana and Brady? Only time will tell, but one thing is certain - Hurts has the potential to leave an indelible mark on the world of football.
So, keep an eye on this rising star, as he aims to etch his name alongside the greatest quarterbacks of all time. Jalen Hurts is ready to make history, one victory at a time.
