With this, they clinched a playoff berth, and not a Wild Card one, but a divisional one!

The 25-year-old quarterback paid a visit to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia days after the Giants game. There he created arts and crafts and played BINGO with the patients. The little patients were filled with joy to get to spend time with the quarterback of the team representing their city.

Hurts also gave signed Eagles jerseys to the children, so that they will always have something tangible to remember the day by. He posed with the children, and one of them even video-called her mother to show who she was with. The children may be going through a hard time at the hospital dealing with their physical health, but the few hours spent with Hurts seemed to help them deal with some of the pain.

Christian McCaffrey plays Santa on Christmas Day

Ahead of Christmas Day, San Francisco 49ers’ wide receiver, Christian McCaffrey gave his QB, Brock Purdy, another reason to push for him to win the MVP title. CMC played Santa Claus and gave his entire offensive teammates expensive hampers, which consisted of a coupon for a custom fitting for a new set of clubs, a bottle of Celaya tequila, and a PXG golf bag. This prompted Purdy to joke that he wouldn’t be able to return the favor: “Financially, I wouldn’t be able to cover that right now.”

Jacksonville Jaguars’ QB Trevor Lawrence also gifted golf-related presents to his entire linemen. Acknowledging their help in protecting him from the opposing team’s defense, he said, “They sacrifice a lot for us and for myself, so I had to do something special for them for Christmas.” What was the special gift? Golf carts worth $140,000 for all of his offensive linemen. Why golf carts? He had injured his feet in a game, and without waiting for a cart to come to pick him up, he had walked off the field on his own.
