Weekly Wentz Watch

By  | 

Carson Wentz and the Eagles are a game under .500, but also only a game back of the leaders in the NFC East.

Philadelphia beat the New York Giants a week after a poor showing against the Saints. The Century High School graduate says a mix of run and pass was the winning equation last weekend.

"I think we go into every game with the focus on being balanced and then we've talked about this before just the flow of the game whether we're down or just how the defense is playing us half the time is part of it so really every week we want to be balance that's the goal and everyone on this offense is on the same page and then it's just kind of play ball from there," said Wentz.

Wentz hit on 20 of his 28 passes against New York, and the Eagles had over 100 yards on the ground.

Eagles Head Coach Doug Pederson said: "up front it starts with them, the tight ends are involved, the receivers are involved and of course your quarterback. The quarterback getting us in and out of runs, good to bad, bad to good and just making all of that work."

More scoring early would certainly help. The Eagles have been shutout in the first quarter in nine of their 11 games this season.

Philly is facing Washington on Monday night.
