Redemption for Carson Wentz
It's only week 1, but he looked pretty good.
The Redskins are a terrible football team, dysfunctional owner and players that don't fit. They are a division rival though so a lot of that gets thrown out the window especially on game 1. There was a scary air in Philly as they went down 17-0 against the dumpster fire Skins, luckily though their QB is Carson Wentz.
After going down that big, he led them back with a spirited 29-3 run which included 2 Desean Jackson touchdown bombs. Carson finished the day 28/39 313 and 3TD, a nice beginning to what might be an MVP caliber season barring injury. Like a lot of teams in the NFL, the first half showed how rusty the players were having sat out preseason games. It was good to see the Eagles show up when the game mattered.
Here's what the Eagles Wire said:
The Philadelphia Eagles showed heart, grit, and determination in their 32-27, comeback win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday. The Eagles could have easily used the season opener as a preseason game and allowed their division rivals to steal one on the road.
Next up the Falcons, Hmm 2-0?.
