1. Jalen Hurts, Eagles
Get in your jokes while you still can, Eagles fans. It brings us no joy to place Hurts No. 1, but we're objective in our analysis.
Hurts hasn't performed up to the MVP standard he set for himself last season. His completion percentage is up near 68%, but his decision-making has regressed from 2022, when he was arguably the top quarterback in that regard.
In Week 1, Hurts only through for 170 yards and his decision-making kept the Patriots within striking distance in the second half. In Week 2, he threw an ugly interception in Philly's win against the Vikings, and his stats (193 passing yards, one TD) were inflated by two busted coverages on wideout DeVonta Smith.
It's been a slower-than-expected start to the year for Hurts the passer, but his rushing volume has helped him top the list. In three games, he has 100 rushing yards and three touchdowns, meaning he's accounted for six total TDs compared to Prescott's three.
It's not a big gap separating Dak and Hurts, but a gap nonetheless.
