Eagles Analysis: Jalen Hurts came back to Earth last week after an electric opener. Alarmingly, bad habits crept back into the picture. According to Pro Football Focus, he threw with an average depth of target of 3.6 yards downfield and 2.77-seconds to throw in Week 1. In Week 2, he chucked it downfield with an average depth of target of 15.7 yards and held the ball too long, recording an average time to throw of 3.49 seconds. Unfortunately, the combination resulted in his completion percentage cratering from 77.1% to 52.2%.
