ICYMI: Wentz Sets Another Rookie Record

Check out these notes from the Eagles' Week 9 matchup against the Giants.

• Carson Wentz threw for 364 yards, marking his second-career 300-yard game and the second-highest total ever by an Eagles rookie. He and Nick Foles are the only Eagles rookies ever with multiple 300-yard games.

• Wentz surpassed Foles for the most passing yards in a season by an Eagles rookie with 1,890. He now owns the rookie records in every major passing category including attempts, completions and touchdowns as well.

• Jordan Hicks recorded his second interception in as many games. He now has eight takeaways (four interceptions, four fumble recoveries) in 16 career games. He became just the fifth linebacker since at least 1999 to have four interceptions in his first 16 games, joining Kiko Alonso, Odell Thurman, Nick Barnett and Brian Cushing.

• Bryce Treggs caught a 58-yard pass from Wentz, the longest by an Eagles rookie since DeSean Jackson had a 60-yarder in the season-opening game of 2008. His 69 receiving yards are the most by an Eagles rookie in his debut since Jackson (106) in that same game.

• Caleb Sturgis went 3-of-4 on field goal attempts, ending his consecutive field goal streak at 18,  ranking as the second-longest in team history behind Alex Henery's 22 in 2012.

• Destiny Vaeao picked up his second sack of the season, becoming the first Eagles undrafted rookie with multiple sacks in a season since Sam Rayburn (2.0 in 2003).

• Ryan Mathews scored his fifth rushing touchdown of the year and has reached the end zone in five of eight games this season. Kenjon Barner also added his second touchdown of the season.

• Darren Sproles accumulated 76 punt return yards, including a 66 yarder, moving past Larry Marshall and into fourth on the Eagles' all-time list with 1,149 yards.

• Nolan Carroll tallied his eighth-career interception and his third with the Eagles. Carroll also had an interception against the Giants last season.

• Zach Ertz led the team with 97 receiving yards on eight catches, marking the fourth-highest total of his career. In his last two contests against the Giants, Ertz has 17 receptions for 249 yards.

• Jordan Matthews had six receptions for 88 yards and now has 31 catches for 356 yards and three touchdowns in five career games against the Giants. He has at least 50 yards in seven straight road games.

• Trey Burton had a career-high 55 receiving yards.
