PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - Carson Wentz and the Eagles are .500 so far this season. It's not where the defending Super Bowl champions want to be but the Century High School graduate says it's not horrible either.
"The sky isn't falling. We're 2-2 right now. I'd love to be 4-0 but this is just where we're at. We're a month in and still trying to figure out 100 percent who we are but at the same time we know the guys we have and we know what we're capable of doing and we realize it's a couple of little things here and there now these little things have magnified itself in some of those losses," said Wentz.
Wentz missed the first two games of the year before he was cleared to play following a nine month rehab after a knee injury ended his season a year ago. Carson says they're not clicking during some important times of the game.
Wentz said: "It's hard to point to one thing that we're missing. I think both 3rd down and red zone I think unfortunately we're hurting ourselves on 1st and 2nd downs, putting ourselves in tough situations whether that's with penalties, sacks or different things. Negative plays are really hurting us that are effecting both of those situations."
The Eagles are hosting the Vikings this weekend. It's a 3:25 CT start on Sunday afternoon. You can watch the game on West Dakota Fox.
