Jalen Hurts' strong start to the 2022 season has continued on Sunday. 

In the first half against the Washington Commanders, Hurts hit on 18-of-27 passes for 279 yards and three touchdowns as the Eagles jumped out to a 24-0 lead. 

Hurts connected with Devonta Smith, A.J. Brown and Dallas Goedert on the scoring passes. 

He's now eclipsed the 300-yard mark early in the third quarter, and the NFL world continues to take notice of Hurts' burgeoning stardom.

The Eagles are well on their way to being 3-0, and as long as they keep winning and Hurts keeps playing this well, the young QB could find his way into the MVP discussion soon. 

Not bad for a second-round pick who looked like a superfluous selection at the time, considering Philly already had Carson Wentz.
