What To Expect From Carson Wentz In His Second NFL Start


Philadephia Eagles are off to a great start in this 2016 campaign. In his first NFL start, he showed the potential that got him drafted 2nd overall when Philly moved up in the draft via trades just to get him.

Jordan Matthews was his favourite target in his first game. Today, he will face the Bears in Chicago and you should expect him to look for his favourite target again. He passed the eye test in his debut, but this game is on the road and it will be interesting to see how he handles the hostile environment.

All eyes will be on him as this Monday Night Football game is nationally televised. Everyone will be watching. Can this kid handle the pressure?


Wentz has a pretty good arm and it will be fun to see him in action if you aren’t a fan of these teams. We fully expect him to throw for more than 200 yards on this Bears’ defense. A couple of TDs from him might be needed as Eagles’ really don’t have that dominant back to carry them through games.

Yes, Sproles is a decent back, but he is more of a pass-catching, one-big-run guy. Not your classic first and second down running back.

Can Wentz pass the test for the 2nd straight week? Expectations are high because he set the bar high in Week 1. Will he top his performance that he had against Browns? We think so.
