Eagles soar despite Hurts injury

Jalen Hurts defied injury against the Giants

The Philadelphia Eagles are within one game of the Super Bowl with three touchdowns in a 38-7 humbling of the New York Giants.

Jalen Hurts shook off his shoulder injury concerns as he led the Eagles, showing potential-MVP form in the first half with two scores through the air and another rushing.

The 24-year-old QB, who threw successfully for 16 of his 24 attempts for a total of 154 yards, had the home side up 28-0 and head coach Nick Sirianni chest-bumping his assistants at the break.

Running back Matt Breida scored on an eight-yard rush in the third to finally get the Giants on the board, but the Eagles responded in the final quarter with a field goal and another touchdown to put the game to bed.

Philadelphia will now host the championship fixture on Sunday against either divisional rivals the Dallas Cowboys or the San Francisco 49ers.

The Kansas City Chiefs earlier progressed to the AFC Championship Game with a 27-20 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
