This is what we’ve been waiting for from Carson Wentz. He hasn’t been playing well through the first six weeks. And to be honest he wasn’t very good in the first half against the New York Giants either. But those last five minutes against New York. That’s what made Carson Wentz the 2nd overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. There was the deep throw to John Hightower that kept the Eagles alive. At that point Philadelphia was trailing 21-10 with five minutes left in the game. If Wentz doesn’t make that throw. Then the Eagles were doomed. After that you could feel this team come back to life. Wentz also stayed hot on the Eagles next possession. And they were able to steal a game away from the Giants by scoring another touchdown. The final ended up being 22-21 and Philadelphia just barely snuck by. Some will say New York is awful and this win doesn’t mean much. But Wentz overcame several key injuries (Zach Ertz, Dallas Goedert, Miles Sanders, Brandon Brooks, and Andre Dillard). So you have to give him some respect for being able to grind one out.
