Unless you went to college at Miami or are a hardcore Jacksonville Jaguars fan, chances are you had no idea who Allen Hurns was prior to 1 p.m. Sunday afternoon.

But the undrafted free agent who was only starting because of an injury to Cecil Shorts II scored two touchdowns on his first two NFL receptions to put his Jags ahead 14-0 at Lincoln Financial Field.

It was the first time in over 40 years that the Eagles allowed two touchdown passes of over 20 yards in the first quarter.

And the lackluster Eagles defense made Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne look like a pro bowler under center.

To boot, the wideout also caught a 46-yard pass to open up the field after the Eagles punt unit pinned Jacksonville at its own 1 yardline.

He had three catches for 101 yards and two TD in the first quarter, and his performance is sure to make him a household name to fantasy owners everywhere, as well as Eagles fans who will remember him and the Jaguars for doing his best to ruin a much anticipated opening day 2014.
