tossed 6 interceptions, one less than he had in each of the previous three seasons. Currently missing out on experienced receiver Alshon Jeffery and rookie first-round choice Jalen Reagor, Wentz lost DeSean Jackson in the first half and tight end Dallas Goedert decreased in the very first quarter.The mix of injuries on the offensive line and the ability positions, questionable playcalling and a foreseeable offending plan, plus his own inconsistency, has actually caused Wentz’s battles.”It’s tough when you got some moving pieces and you got different guys therein,”Eagles coach Doug Pederson stated.” We’re not going to make reasons for anything

He needs to comprehend you don’t need to make the big play all the time. Plus you have guys who can make plays. You require to get the ball in their hands and let them go out and make plays.”___ More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL!.?.!Facebook Email
