Wentz sharp, leads quick touchdown drive

A 19-yard touchdown pass from rookie Carson Wentz to Jordan Matthews gave the Eagles a 7-0 lead on the Browns one series into Sunday’s season opener.

The touchdown came on a beautifully thrown fade to the corner of the end zone. Wentz went 4-of-5 for 57 yards on the drive, which isn’t bad for a guy who played fewer than 40 snaps in the preseason.

The Browns aren’t very good defensively. To put it mildly.

Stay tuned. There might be a lot of scoring in this one.

    but Sashi, Hue and the rest of the mooreons in cleveland said he wasn’t any good……great start to the Sashi era….as expected, the Browns sux as always…….nothing ever changes in that regard.

    It’s a home opener against the Cleveland Browns it’s lower than a preseason game

    Come on Cleveland, you’re facing a rookie QB, why aren’t you blitzing every down?

    Wentz still looks like a college QB, in the way he sets and throws. Cleatly a work in progress.

    How profound. A rookie QB in in his firt game is a work in progress. I guess they still haven’t found a cure for stupid.
