Rookie QB Wentz Passes Road Test, Takes Eagles to 2-0
He came, he conquered, he Wentz. Before a hostile Monday Night Football crowd in Chicago, Carson Wentz handled tough hits and kept the Eagles offense moving in a 29-14 victory. The No. 2 overall draft pick from lower-tier North Dakota State University was first tapped for third string, but has taken over with a mettle more impressive than his stats — including zero interceptions. A stifling defense and weak Bears and Browns teams helped, but a bigger test awaits: the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers.
