Carson Wentz named NFL Rookie of the Week, again

Might be easier to talk about the awards Wentz hasn't won.

Carson Wentz, man. What more can you say?

The Eagles' rookie quarterback was named the NFL Rookie of the Week for his Week 3 performance in the Eagles' 34-3 win over the Steelers.

Wentz completed 23 of 31 passes for 301 yards and two touchdowns in the Birds' surprise win over the powerhouse Steelers at the Linc.

Wentz dominated the voting, earning more than 50 percent of the vote.

Wentz's teammate, Wendell Smallwood, was also up for the award, as was Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliot, and Browns cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun.

Wentz also won the award in Week 1, when he led the Eagles to a 29-10 win over the Browns in the first game of his NFL career.

Browns wide receiver Corey Coleman won the award in Week 2.

Wentz has yet to throw an interception through three games, while throwing five touchdowns and completing 66 of his first 102 passes as a pro.

I'll be really impressed if he wins it for Week 4.
