Wentz is one of three players eligible to win the “Fedex Air Player of the Week” award. The other two quarterbacks he’s going up against: Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith. You can [click here] to vote for Wentz.
Here’s a look at how they all performed stat-wise.
Carson Wentz: 21/30 (70%), 304 yards (10.1 average), 4 TD, 1 INT, 128.3 passer rating
Cam Newton: 26/33 (78.8%), 355 yards (10.8 average), 3 TD, 0 INT, 141.8 passer rating
Alex Smith: 29/37 (78.4%), 325 yards (8.8 average), 3 TD, 0 INT, 130.2 passer rating
Based on statistics alone, Wentz doesn’t have the strongest case of the three. That would go to the quarterback of the Eagles’ Week 6 opponent: Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers.
Both Wentz and Newton have been playing really well in recent weeks. Thursday night has the potential to be a great battle between the two quarterbacks.
