Wentz played three games in his first month as a pro, and won all three. He completed 64.7 percent of his passes for 769 yards, 5 TDs, 0 INTs, and averaged 7.5 yards per attempt. He currently holds the record for most pass attempts (102) by a rookie to start a career without throwing an interception.
The laudations can’t seem to keep up with Wentz’s growing legend.
Yesterday, Wentz was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his stellar performance (23 of 31, 301 yards, 2 TD) in the Eagles’ surprise win over the Steelers.
After Week 1, Wentz was named the NFL Rookie of the Week for his eye-opening performance (22 of 37, 278 yards, 2 TD) in the Eagles’ season-opening win over the Browns.
At this rate, the league’s going to have to give him the MVP by November. He just can’t be stopped.
Who would’ve thought?
