Carson Wentz shows off crazy pocket scrambling on first Eagles touchdown of 2017 season (VIDEO)


NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports


Seriously, just look at this freaking play by the Philadelphia Eagles’ second-year quarterback. He’s a magician when it comes to eluding pressure in the pocket.

And not only does he somehow avoid pressure ... he also manages to keep his eyes down the field and make a huge play. We’ve seen Wentz do this quite a few times now. He’s really good at it.

This throw came at a funny time because Wentz underthrew his first deep attempt on Philly’s first offensive play of the game. A lot of his critics were ready to jump all over him and criticize his inability to throw deep.

But then AIR YARDS happened. Just a great play from Wentz.

And how about Nelson Agholor, too!? The much-maligned receiver did his part by getting open and actually catching the ball. That has to be a real big boost to his confidence.

Great way for the Eagles to start the 2017 season!
