The Eagles’ final two drives ended with a punt and a game-sealing interception, respectively. Hurts was asked about the two-minute offense after the game and had a surprising answer.

“I’ve been talking about execution all year. Being on the same page, everyone being on the same page. We didn’t execute,” he said, via Pro Football Talk. “I don’t think we’re, we’re all, we’re committed enough. Just got to turn it around. You know, it’s a challenge that we have to embrace. Just continue to see it through.”
