Eagle Eye: A Statement Game For Carson Wentz

Sunday win over the Arizona Cardinals was a complete team victory, with all three sides of the ball making huge plays in the game. I'm going to look at the defense tomorrow, and Il jump on special teams later in this piece, but let not bury the lead. This was a statement game for quarterback Carson Wentz. I thought he had one of his best performances as an Eagle last week against the Chargers Zach Ertz Jersey, and he followed that up with a great outing on Sunday that included four touchdown throws, making him the youngest quarterback since Donovan McNabb to throw for four scores in a game. Let take a look at those plays and see how they happened. Carson Wentz's Touchdown Throws Anytime a team can start a game off with three straight touchdowns on offense, it is going to put itself in position to win the game. The Eagles got a number of key third-down conversions on their opening drive Kamu Grugier-Hill Jersey, their first possession of 10 or more plays on the afternoon, and found themselves in the red zone. It was the same part of the field where Wentz threw his first career touchdown pass in the NFL, and he hooks up with tight end Trey Burton on the same exact route - the slot fade. Shot 1 - Wentz's 1st TD came on a staple route of the Eagles offense, the 'Slot Fade'. Great design and great touch from Wentz in red zone
