PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Jalen Hurts scored yet another touchdown on the “ tush push” that gave him the NFL record for most rushing scores by a quarterback in a season with 15.

Hurts scored on a 1-yard run early in the first quarter to give the Philadelphia Eagles a 7-0 lead over the New York Giants on Monday. Carolina's Cam Newton held the record at 14 rushing touchdowns for a QB in 2011.

Hurts also moved within two touchdowns of setting the Eagles' season record for total touchdowns. QB Randall Cunningham accounted for 35 in 1990 and Hurts matched him last season.
