The Eagles’ defensive line threw the Bears’ offensive line out of the way on Monday night’s opening drive, then Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz threw the ball just about wherever he wanted to on his team’s first drive.

The Bears tightened inside the 10 and held the Eagles to a field goal and a 3-0 lead.

Wentz was 8-of-9 passing for 45 yards on his first drive and completed passes to five different receivers. Wentz threw for 278 yards and two touchdowns in his NFL debut.

    Smartest thing he did was eat that third down and take the FG. Many QB’s would have forced it. Very smart play by the rook. Athleticism only gets you so far. The good ones use their brains.

    Jon Gruden speaks gibberish . I love when he stops talking mid sentence because he knows what he’s saying makes no sense .

    Just think, Hue Jackson said Carson Wentz wasn’t a good fit for the Cleveland Browns.
    But he determined Robert Griffin III was…

    The coaches on the Browns that wanted to draft Carson Wentz were abruptly FIRED.
