Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts came into Sunday’s showdown against the San Francisco 49ers knowing it was the most important game of his life.
The 24-year-old has been at the center of some big outings before in college during his stints at Alabama and Oklahoma.
But competing for a place in the Super Bowl is a whole different beast.
Ahead of this weekend’s affair, Hurts picked out a special outfit for the occasion.

Fans absolutely loved it.
NFL Twitter is one of the more vocal communities around, so understandably folks had a lot to say about Hurts’ choice of attire.
The way I wanna be the color purple so bad!

In a week where a loyal Eagles fan stole the show with her provocative tribute to the team and a cheerleader’s wild photos went viral, Hurts has successfully reclaimed the spotlight with this outfit.
Philly is currently riding the sort of momentum that propelled them to a championship in 2018.
May as well just put the Bengals in the Super Bowl now. https://t.co/gpfvvXvcpW

Is another Super Bowl run in this team’s immediate future?
By hook or by crook, Hurts will do everything in his power to get Eagles there.
