The Super Bowl is the biggest game of the year for Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles as well as Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. Arguably the most important person in the country has given his support to one of these teams.
Each team has legions of fans, but the President of the United States has stated his backing of Hurts and the Eagles.
“As your president, I’m not picking favorites. But as Jill Biden’s husband, fly Eagles, fly.”
Biden is not necessarily a fan of the Eagles, but his wife is. Jill Biden posted a video showcasing her support for the Eagles and the President tweeted his agreement from the official POTUS account.
The president certainly can be a fan of a team, but Biden isn’t necessarily an Eagles fan. He’s just a good husband who wants to see his wife’s team win. So far, his hope looks good as the Eagles currently lead
What has happened for Jalen Hurts and the Eagles thus far?
The Eagles, and Jalen Hurts especially, have experienced the highs and lows of the game thus far. Their opening drive was perfect as Hurts was methodical moving down the field.
The Chiefs matched and then missed a field goal, giving Hurts and company the ball back. They scored on a 45-yard touchdown pass to AJ Brown. That gave them the lead.
When the Eagles forced a punt, things were looking good. Unfortunately, the quarterback fumbled on a scramble and the Chiefs returned it for a touchdown with ease.
That tied the game, but Hurts and company didn’t stay down for long. After a massive fourth down run by Jalen Hurts, the quarterback kept it himself to score from three yards out to give the Chiefs the lead once again.
This is already a very high scoring game and the Eagles offense doesn’t look like it’s going to slow down any time soon.
This very well could end up being one of the highest scoring Super Bowls of all time if Hurts and Mahomes continue to put on a show like they have thus far.
