Carson Wentz was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 3 after leading the Eagles to a 34-3 thrashing of the Steelers at home on Sunday.

Wentz completed 23 of 31 passes for 301 yards and two touchdowns, and for the third week in a row avoided throwing an interception. He also ran once, for 10 yards and a first down.

Through three weeks, Wentz has looked anything but rookie-like, even though he won Rookie of the Week in Week 1 and is up for the award again this week.

Wentz has completed 66 of 102 passes for 769 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions, and he’s piloted the Eagles’ offense to the second-most points in the NFL.

This past Sunday, he and Darren Sproles hooked up for one of the coolest touchdowns you’re ever going to see, which certainly helped both Wentz’s statistics and his case for this award.

Even during a bye week, Wentz can’t stop winning.
