Best Memes of Carson Wentz & the Philadelphia Eagles Crushing the Pittsburgh Steelers
Sep 29 2016 by Marjorie Miles
Then everyone will jump off the Wentz train and go aboard the Elliott train of the Prescott train.
Before last week, many had been searching for comparisons to Carson Wentz, the Philadelphia rookie quarterback who shredded the Steelers for 301 yards in Sunday's 34-3 blowout at Lincoln Financial Field.
Wideout Jordan Matthews had some high praise for Pederson following the Eagles' Week 1 win over the Cleveland Browns. Maybe someone should've warned the Steelers about who they were facing instead.
"Wentz is playing so well, he's giving the fans something to root for", Hart said. "Everyone is believing in each other".
COLTS 26, CHARGERS 22 (at Indianapolis) - Andrew Luck shook off a sore throwing shoulder, then watched T.Y. Hilton break a tackle on a 63-yard touchdown pass with 1:17 to play for Indianapolis. Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw six interception in the game, including three in the end zone, as NY lost 24-3. After limiting the Steelers to just three points and 251 yards, they have proven that those numbers are no fluke. The Eagles will resume action in week 5 when they travel to Detroit to face the Lions on Oct 9.
BACKFIELD DEPTH: The 33-year-old Sproles still has plenty left. Antonio Brown finished the game with 12 catches for 140 yards on 18 targets. Rookie Wendell Smallwood ran for 79 yards and his first career TD. Logan's block came against Chris Boswell and the length of the try was also 36 yards.
Royals top Twins 4-3 in 11 innings on Burns' sacrifice fly
Twins: 1B Joe Mauer, who is hitless in his past 15 at-bats, is still bothered by a sore quadriceps and not in the lineup. The veteran was making just his third start after spending nearly the entire season recovering from Tommy John surgery.
U.S. to send about 600 more troops
In a post-Islamic State Iraq, the enmities and rivalries among the players in the anti-IS coalition could easily erupt. These troops will not spearhead the attack, said Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook.
REAL DEAL D: Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz's defense has been downright stingy. Players say there's room for improvement. "Everybody is still getting acclimated with the system", Graham said.
FIRST GAME JITTERS? Steelers WR Markus Wheaton had a forgettable return to the lineup after missing the first two games with a shoulder injury. Williams was the second-leading receiver with 23 yards on four catches.
"We've got to perform better", coach Mike Tomlin said. They beat the Green Bay Packers in Week 2, but the loss of Peterson made it feel as though the defensive-minded Vikings wouldn't be good enough.
"I think we all knew that's what we were expecting from Carson", Reich said. "I challenge all the players and even the coaches to look in the mirror and point the thumb".
"By no means have we accomplished anything yet", head coach Doug Pederson said.
If the Steelers don't play again in Philadelphia for another eight years, I don't think Ben Roethlisberger would mind. We know we can be better. "We need to look at this film, address our concerns and be ready for Kansas City". Wentz is the first player in National Football League history with at least 100 pass attempts, 60 completions, five TDs and zero INTs in his first three games. Once it became a multiple-score game they were just free-wheeling and they were able to spin the dial a little bit and we couldn't find a rhythm necessary to create duress in them.
