PHILADELPHIA - Carson Wentz and the Eagles have had an up and down season to say the least.
The Century High School graduate needs one more win to get his team into the NFL playoffs. That opportunity comes on Sunday afternoon when Philadelphia finishes the regular season against the New York Giants.
Three straight losses make it look like the Eagles were out of the post-season picture, but three straight victories means one more and Philly wins the NFC-East.
"We have to win this one just like the last few weeks. I think everyone knows that obviously we've had a couple of emotional wins the last few weeks and as leaders and coaches as well have done a great job of just making sure guys have still bought into this here and now and not just dwelling on the past, not looking ahead either and just going out to work. We have our work cut out for us against a good opponent on the road and obviously if we win we're in so we know what's at stake," said Wentz.
The current winning streak started with a come from behind victory over the Giants earlier this month. Carson says it started to click in the second half of that game.
"Honestly it just came down to execution early. It was lacking. We left some plays out there. They made some good plays and we started playing together and executing ourselves better in the second half and kind of found a rhythm there so we feel good. We have confidence going into this game with what we're going to do offensively," said Wentz.
I said this earlier this month, but the way Carson is playing right now, basically carrying the team at times, it reminds me of the year he led North Dakota State University to the national championship against Illinois State.
You can watch Sunday's game at 3:25 CST on West Dakota Fox.
