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
Clevelanders can look forward to a vibrant week of sports talk radio. Wentz looks like the real deal.— Marc Sessler (@MarcSesslerNFL) September 11, 2016
Whoa! Beautiful TD pass from Wentz to Jordan Matthews....outside shoulder, away from defender. Very impressive.— Stephen A Smith (@stephenasmith) September 11, 2016
Wentz td to agholar a great ball- but 4th and 4 was outstanding...took hit from free runner and stuck slant— Mike Mayock (@MikeMayock) 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
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
