Toyota Player Of The Week Nominees: Titans

The term "heartbreaking defeat" is a sometimes-overused cliché, but it fits all too well when describing the Eagles' overtime loss to the Titans in Week 4.

Despite the stinging defeat, the Eagles had some tremendous individual performances that should not be overlooked.

Here are your nominees for the Toyota Player of the Week:

QB Carson Wentz

Wentz played valiantly in defeat, completing 33 of his 50 pass attempts for 348 yards and two touchdown passes while taking punishment from the Tennessee defense.

Complementing Wentz's impressive numbers were the long drives he led in crunch time. Wentz led the Eagles to a game-tying field goal late in regulation after six plays.

In overtime, he drove the Eagles 56 yards on nine plays to help the Eagles regain the lead with another field goal.

WR Alshon Jeffery

If there were any concerns of Jeffery being rusty after missing the entire preseason and the first three games of the regular season, he quickly put those concerns to rest after a stellar performance against the Titans.

Jeffery eight passes for 105 yards and a touchdown, reminding people just how much of an impact he can have on the Eagles' offense.

TE Zach Ertz

Ertz continued to cement his place as one of the best tight ends in Eagles history Sunday with 10 receptions on 14 targets for 112 yards.

He also moved up the Eagles' record books, passing Jeremy Maclin for the ninth-most receptions in team history. He also has the fourth most among tight ends in franchise history.
