Jalen Hurts breaks Super Bowl record with insane rushing performance
Jalen Hurts has been borderline unstoppable Sunday night in the Super Bowl. He’s rushed for 3 touchdowns and thrown for 1 more, also adding 304 yards through the air in the process. He and Mahomes are trading punches and we are currently tied at 35 all.
Hurts’ insane performance is going down in the NFL history books too. He broke the record for most rushing touchdowns by a quarterback midway through the 4th, sneaking it in from a full 2 yards out. His 2-point conversion seconds later evened up the score.

What a amazing story for Hurts, who of course was benched in the national championship game at Alabama. Even this year, many doubted his ability as a passer, but he’s also completed 27 of his 37 passing attempts. This is a versatile performance from the former Alabama and Oklahoma QB.
The ultimate goal is still in front of him, though. Can the Eagles finish, or will Patrick Mahomes earn his second ring?
