One-win teams collided on Thursday with plenty of ups, downs and everything in between. Though it wasn’t always pretty, it was dramatic. The NFC East tilt came down to the wire, with Carson Wentz throwing a beautiful game-winning touchdown score to Boston Scott and a Brandon Graham forced fumble sealing the Philadelphia Eagles’ 22-21 win over the New York Giants.
1) Long lamented for his inability to stay healthy, Carson Wentz is now bounding about recklessly, throwing playground passes and rushing right at defenders in the hopes of willing the Eagles around, over and through their struggles. He’s putting his team’s tribulations upon his shoulders and it’s having adverse effects — and dramatically triumphant ones. On an evening in which he was sacked three times and threw a horrible interception, Wentz also had three total touchdowns and a season-high 359 yards passing.
