Tue, 25 Oct 2016 00:44:44 GMT2016-10-25T00:44:44ZWhat's wrong with Carson Wentz? It's a peculiar question to ask just six games into the Eagles quarterback's NFL career, but Wentz hasn't been the same since he launched that game-clinching interception in Detroit a little over two weeks ago.

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 21:40:05 GMT2016-10-24T21:40:05ZOne week after Carson Wentz was sacked five times and hit 12 times, the Eagles quarterback barely dirtied his uniform in a 21-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. He was not sacked and was hit only twice, a tribute to an offensive line that needed a better performance.

Carson Wentz ambled out of the shower like a giddy teenager ready for the prom. It might have been as simple as this: Wentz and his Eagles defeated Bradford and his Vikings, 21-10. It was a clear referendum on the Eagles' plan to opt for Wentz over Bradford . . . right? Not exactly. Neither played well.

Ryan Mathews, who picked up 56 yards on 14 carries, gained 20 on a beautifully blocked third-and-9 draw just before the half that set up a Caleb Sturgis field goal.

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 02:30:40 GMT2016-10-24T02:30:40ZYOU JUST could not put the Eagles' defense in a situation it couldn't handle Sunday. Carson Wentz knows, because he tried.

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 01:21:02 GMT2016-10-24T01:21:02ZJim Schwartz ripped a page out of Mike Zimmer's playbook and blitzed the sleeves off Sam Bradford. The Eagles defensive coordinator sent extra rushers from the edges, he sent them up the middle. He sent safeties, he sent linebackers. Even when he sometimes only sent four, it was disguised as a blitz.
Mon, 24 Oct 2016 01:18:14 GMT2016-10-24T01:18:14ZA week of discussion about Carson Wentz and Sam Bradford ended with forgettable performances from both passers, but also with the Eagles defense looking superior to a Minnesota Vikings unit hailed as perhaps the NFL’s finest.
Mon, 24 Oct 2016 01:06:31 GMT2016-10-24T01:06:31ZIt's doubtful the throws Carson Wentz was making - or attempting - for much of Sunday's first half would have been terribly effective for North Dakota State last season, taking on Southern Illinois or Western Illinois or South Dakota State.
Mon, 24 Oct 2016 01:06:08 GMT2016-10-24T01:06:08ZThe Eagles entered yet another phase of their season on Sunday - this would be the third, if you're counting - and while it wasn't as good as the first one, it was a lot better than the second.

The Eagles kick returner did not waste a spin move or fancy juke, electing instead to simply run through Walsh, who spun like a top as Huff kept sprinting.

The defensive coordinator blitzed early, often and with variety and Sam Bradford never stood a chance behind a patchwork line.

In both games, they took a ridiculous amount of penalties and were mistake-ridden enough that, had they managed to pull out a win in the final minutes, it would have felt like thievery.

Sat, 22 Oct 2016 22:54:37 GMT2016-10-22T22:54:37ZCarson Wentz started his week trying to pinpoint what went wrong in the worst start of his young NFL career before preparing for the toughest defense he has seen to date. There was enough to occupy Wentz's attention leading up to Sunday's game against the undefeated Minnesota Vikings that facing the player whose job he took was not among them.
Fri, 21 Oct 2016 23:21:32 GMT2016-10-21T23:21:32ZWhen the Eagles have the ball The Vikings have not allowed more than 16 points in a game this season, which illustrates the challenge the Eagles offense faces. Carson Wentz threw for a season-low 179 yards last week; the Vikings are limiting opponents to 210 passing yards per game and have allowed only four passing touchdowns. They are strong on all levels of the defense, and coach Mike Zimmer's system is respected around the NFL.
Fri, 21 Oct 2016 21:18:10 GMT2016-10-21T21:18:10ZLONDON (AP) - The NFL placed Josh Brown on paid leave Friday hours after coach Ben McAdoo struggled to answer questions about how the New York Giants might discipline the kicker for abusing his wife.

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 18:52:39 GMT2016-10-21T18:52:39ZThe Eagles handed out nearly $250 million in contracts to four homegrown players this offseason, but they aren't getting nearly enough production from the group as a whole through the first five games of the season.

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 15:18:20 GMT2016-10-21T15:18:20ZTHE PICK The Eagles might have a better chance to win this game than fans still despondent over Sunday's drubbing might think. Whatever Sam Bradford knows about his former team, I'm not overly impressed by the list of teams the Vikings have beaten, and I don't see weapons that should lead to Minnesota lighting up Jim Schwartz's defense the way the Redskins did. The Vikings will play a bad game and lose to somebody, sooner or later, probably sooner.
