Carson Wentz and the Eagles’ offensive diversity has them running through the league
28 November 2017 Eagles News
Yet again, the inevitable happened, Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz put on a show in front of the Philadelphia faithful. Under Wentz’s guidance, the Eagles offense put the game away before halftime.
Wentz finished the game 23 of 36 for 227 and three touchdowns. With a rating of 109.4 and a QBR of 91.8, Wentz did not have to even snap the ball in the fourth quarter as he was taken out and replaced by backup Nick Foles. However, when Wentz was in, he threw three touchdowns to three different players. In fact, for the first time this season the Eagles had a receiver go for 100 yards, which is a testament to how good the Eagles passing attack is. They share the ball around, there is not one guy they need to lean on.
Speaking of all the Eagles receiving options, Ertz finished the game with 10 receptions for 103 yards and one touchdown. Alshon Jeffery had 52 yards and one touchdown on five receptions. Nelson Agholor caught the last touchdown while also hauling in three passes for 32 yards. Torrey Smith finished the receiving corps day catching four passes for 30 yards.
The game was over by halftime, so while their numbers might not seem too impressive, remember it was done by halftime. The second half consisted of the Eagles just trying to run off the clock.
On the year, Wentz is leading the NFL in touchdowns with 28. In fact, he is just the third quarterback to have that many touchdowns through 11 games in NFL history. As well as individual excellence, Wentz has been the driving force behind the Eagles record-setting three 28 or more point wins in a row. Right now, no one is stopping the Eagles and Carson Wentz.
