The Philadelphia Eagles decided to start Jalen Hurts for the first time against the Saints this week, and New Orleans should be worried about that.
The New Orleans Saints have a 10-2 record and besides some bad losses at the beginning of the seasons, they have been rocking teams this year. As far as Saints fans are concerned, the Eagles and new quarterback Jalen Hurts are just another target on their schedule.
However, it may end up being a little more difficult than that. Wentz was on the top of the interceptions board in the NFL, and the Saints were preparing to keep him there. The secondary was ready to eat on Sunday.
Now, the Eagles have made the decision to start Jalen Hurts instead. This is going to prove to cost the Saints more than it is help them. I am not saying the Hurts is going to come in and dismantle a very good Saints defense, but I am saying it’s more of a possibility than Wentz.
The Saints are going to have to prepare for Hurts in a completely different way than Wentz. While I’m not saying Hurts is an extremely talented rookie, I am saying that the team should be a little worried of the unknowns surrounding the rookie.
