Filling in for Hurts (who was out with an ankle injury), Minshew finished 20 of 25 for 242 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions (133.7 rating) in the Eagles' 33-18 victory.Minshew had a case for the starting job based off that one game, but that opportunity isn't likely happening in Philadelphia."He is a competitor. He is locked in, whether he's the backup, whether he's playing," Sirianni said. "He's been in both scenarios this year with the Jets game, playing in that game, not knowing if he was playing in that game until late in the week. "The guy is going to prepare like crazy, no matter what the situation, and he's competitive. Of course, every backup that we have on this team, if they didn't want to be the starter, I would have an i sue with them being the backup."The Eagles don't have an i sue at quarterback if Hurts were to mi s time with an injury. In that Jets game, Minshew completed his first 11 pa ses and his 93.3% completion rate in the first half was the highest since Carlos Santana Jersey Donovan McNabb in 2007 -- tied for the best mark by any Eagles quarterback since at least 1991 (when those stats first were kept).

Over the last three games, Hurts completed a season-high 66.7% of his pa ses for 709 yards with Maikel Franco Jersey three touchdowns to just one interception for a 101.3 pa ser rating. Of quarterbacks with 50 pa s attempts, Hurts is seventh in the league in pa ser rating over the last three games, ninth in pa sing yards, and third in yards per attempt (8.75).

Zach Eflin Jersey Hurts is the eighth quarterback in NFL history to throw for 3,000 yards and rush for 750 yards in a season. The Eagles don't appear to be moving on from Hurts, at least not in favor of Minshew anyway."Gardner has played a lot of football in this league. I got a lot of confidence in him that he's our backup and he's the player that he is," Sirianni said.

He was awesome in the game that he played against the Jets. And so, I would be disappointed if Gardner didn't want to be the starter, but obviously Jalen Hurts is our starter."
