PHILADELPHIA (AP) Asked about being an NFL Most Valuable Player finalist, Jalen Hurts revealed, I didnt know. Nick Sirianni pounded his fist on a table in mock disgust and cracked Oh man! when queried about his finalist snub for Coach of the Year.

In other words, individual awards dont mean a whole lot this week in Philly.

Not when theres a Super Bowl to win.

The trophy is within reach for the Eagles as they head into the NFC championship game against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Sirianni and several Eagles stumped for Hurts to win MVP in the wake of The Associated Press award finalists being announced Wednesday. Hurts took a moment to soak in having his name in the mix with fellow quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen and Joe Burrow as a candidate for the NFLs highest individual prize. No Eagle has won MVP since QB Norm Van Brocklin in 1960.

I think its a cool honor, Hurts said. I dont really have much to say about it. Im at a loss of words, to be honest.

Hurts put up numbers in the regular season worthy of such consideration: Philadelphia went 14-1 in his starts and he had 3,701 yards passing, 760 yards rushing and 35 touchdowns combined. He led the Eagles to the top seed in the NFC and a playoff victory over the New York Giants.
