Jalen Hurts has been arguably the second most successful QB after Patrick Mahomes. In the last season, Hurts was able to prove himself throughout the regular season as well as the post-season. It is almost unsurprising that Hurts bagged such a huge contract with the Philadelphia Eagles. However, an incident was scary enough to almost end all the success Hurts obtained during the last season.

While exiting FedEx Field, the QB was faced with a terrifying moment that could’ve ended his 2022 season career run. After playing against Washington Commanders, Hurts was leaving the field. Suddenly, there was a collapse of a structure that caused a lot of fans to fall on the QB. Luckily, he was able to escape the fall and even helped the fallen fans up.

In a twist of faith, this was a few months before Hurts got his brilliant contract extension of $255,000,000 with the Eagles. Shockingly, the QB wouldn’t have been able to make an appearance in this year’s Super Bowl if he was caught under the fence.
