The Eagles are going to the Super Bowl and Jalen Hurts is sending the team off in the most Philly way imaginable: Leading the Eagles fight song.
Here's Hurts grabbing the mic during the trophy presentation after the 31-7 win over the 49ers:

Sunday at the Linc wasn't Hurts' most impressive performance – 15-for-25 for 121 yards passing, and 39 rushing yards with a rushing touchdown – but it was more than enough to put a San Francisco team in meltdown mode away for good, especially after a third-quarter scoring drive that chewed up nearly eight minutes of clock and put the Eagles up 28-7. The Niners just had nothing left after that.
"I'm not going to make this about me," Hurts said on stage during the celebration. "This is a special city. They deserve everything that's going on. We've got one more, we've got one more."
But the city definitely appreciates him. "M-V-P!" chants flowed through the crowd in the celebration:
