Carson Wentz looked pretty good in limited playing time during the Philadelphia Eagles’ first preseason game against the Green Bay Packers.
Wentz’s highlight moment was his touchdown throw to rookie wide receiver Mack Hollins. Watch the play below:

Just an awesome job by Wentz to shake off an unblocked Clay Matthews, who is a pretty good pass rusher, coming straight at him. Wentz is crazy elusive in the pocket. He really showed off that ability last season, especially late in the year. Looks like he’s picked up right where he left off.
Wentz kept his eyes up while avoiding pressure and found Hollins running open over the middle. The receiver did a great job of not going down easily. He was aided by pretty poor tackling from the Packers, yes, but that stiff arm was nasty. I’m looking forward to seeing more of him moving forward.
The Eagles wisely pulled Wentz from the game after this score. Philadelphia’s starting quarterback finished with four completions on four attempts for 56 yards, one touchdown, and a perfect passer rating of 158.3.
Always a great thing for the Eagles when Wentz looks good.
