Carson Wentz wowed the crowd at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday, compiling a 101 QB rating and leading the Eagles to a 19-point victory in his NFL debut. But Eagles fans weren't the only ones who came away impressed with Wentz's performance.
Here's a look at some of the national reaction to Wentz's first game in Eagles green ...
Wentz just audibled when he was cross dog blitz coming for big gain. This kid is wise beyond his years.— Ross Tucker (@RossTuckerNFL) September 11, 2016
Not enough credit for what C Wentz did today @NFL .Look at the stats. One preseason game and he puts up this kinda day as a rookie?@Eagles— David Boreanaz (@David_Boreanaz) September 12, 2016
Clevelanders can look forward to a vibrant week of sports talk radio. Wentz looks like the real deal.— Marc Sessler (@MarcSesslerNFL) September 11, 2016
Coaches did a smart thing coming out running early to get Wentz comfortable. Then giving him shorter reads on passes. #CLEvsPHI— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) September 11, 2016

Best thing about Carson Wentz? Was 8/8 against the blitz. Last season Eagles QBs completed 51% vs blitz. T-3rd worst in NFL— trey wingo (@wingoz) September 12, 2016
PFF: #Eagles QB Carson Wentz earned an 86.6 grade this week. 3rd-highest among NFL QBs so far, trailing only Andrew Luck and Drew Brees.— Rand Getlin (@RandGetlin) September 12, 2016
Since at least 1960, only three NFL rookie QBs have posted 275+ passing yards, 2+ passing TDs and 0 INTs in a season opener. Wentz is one— Eliot Shorr-Parks (@EliotShorrParks) September 11, 2016
