Gardner Minshew seems to back to what he once was.
On Sunday, he started in place of the injured Jalen Hurts and the Eagles rolled up 418 yards on a Jets defense that had no answers. The Eagles scored on their first seven possessions and did not punt until there was two minutes left in the game.
Minshew completed his first 11 passes and went 14-for-15 in the first half for 188 yards and two touchdowns.
After the game, his moment with his father went super viral as their excitement was evident.
With the win Sunday, which improved the Eagles to 6-7 this season, the team’s playoff chances increased from 25% to 30%, according to ESPN’s Football Power Index.
