Carson Wentz Downplays Eagles QB Controversy
By David Hayes
This has not been the type of season fans of the Philadelphia Eagles, nor their former star quarterback Carson Wentz, had envisioned looking forward to Week 14 of the 2020 campaign.
The Eagles have now lost four straight to fall to 3-8-1 on the year, and Wentz leads the entire league in interceptions, with 15. And in Sunday's Week 13 matchup with the Green Bay Packers, the Eagles even benched Wentz in favor of rookie and second-round pick Jalen Hurts after falling behind to the Packers.
However, Wentz still hasn't lost his confidence in losing his job to Hurts later in that game.
In Wentz's defense, it's not like Hurts came in with all of the answers that the Eagles have been searching for in their passing game since Wentz's game began slipping this season.
The former Alabama and Oklahoma standout finished the day 5-of-12 for 138 yards with 1touchdown and 1 interception.
Therefore, it doesn't seem farfetched that this could simply prove the wake-up call that Wentz needed in Philly to recalibrate his competitive passion and skill back into the package we all saw in his breakout 2017-18 performance.
