Congratulations to Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz for being named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week. He threw four touchdowns and 267 yards in Philadelphia’s 34-24 win over the Washington Redskins. You can’t say enough about some of the plays he made in the Eagles win.
Miraculously, the second-year signal caller was able to escape a sack on a third and eight play. It looked like he was being taken down by a couple of Redskins linebackers, when all of a sudden he breaks out of the pile and run for 17 yards.
On another player with pass rushers in his face, he was able to spot running back Corey Clement running down the right sideline. Again out of the pile, he somehow threw a stride to Clement for a touchdown.
With the Eagles sporting the best record in the NFL at 6-1, Wentz is putting himself in position to be the league’s Most Valuable Player.
