"I’m not a lip reader, but I’m pretty sure she said to Jalen “You need to protect that ball better, moving forward”"

"Jalen Hurts impresses me more and more because he respectfully made sure he acknowledged his GF while making conversation with the woman next to him. That's why he's a good QB - good decision-making."
