Coach Pederson looking for a "spark" with QB change
Jalen Hurts is ready for his moment and his coach thinks the rookie could be the missing spark the team needs to finish the season strong.

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Jalen Hurts is officially QB1 for the Philadelphia Eagles, but we haven't seen the last of Carson Wentz.

Coach Doug Pederson mentions both QBs will have a role on the team, with Hurts starting and, hopefully, giving the offense a shot in the arm; and Wentz serving as a mentor and learning from his demotion.

Jeff Skversky highlights the Eagles' QB change in this week's Sports Flash.
