Carson Wentz is the NFC offensive player of the month

The Eagles have the best record in the NFL after going undefeated in October and their quarterback’s work to get them to 7-1 has been recognized by the NFL.

The league announced on Thursday that Carson Wentz has been named the NFC’s offensive player of the month for October.

Wentz was 89-of-148 for 1,247 yards, 14 touchdowns and three interceptions. The 14 touchdowns are a record for an Eagles quarterback over the course of a month and Wentz only threw two more touchdowns over the course of his entire rookie season.

That jump in production is exactly what the Eagles wanted to see from the second overall pick in the 2016 draft and the impact it has had on the team is impossible to miss. The Eagles have yet to score less than 20 points in a game this season and they never scored less than 26 points during their 5-0 run through October.

  1. Nothing in your life will be different Philly fan if the Eagles win the super bowl. Not one thing. #lifelessonsfromyouknowimright

  2. Youknowimright knows it’s coming and he can’t handle it. Let’s keep it rolling, birds!!

  3. Congrats Carson! Well deserved! Time bring home a superbowl for the first time in franchise history. Over 50 years of waiting!

  4. Cleveland loses out on Carson via draft trade
    Cleveland loses out on Deshaun via draft trade.
    Cleveland loses out on AJ via fumbled trade.
    Cleveland has to pay Brock to ply for Denver this Sunday.

    AJ fans have something to be excited about lol.

    This team will be for real if they beat Seattle in a few weeks.)

    @Dallas in two weeks is a big game. With or without Zeke that’s a playoff game for the NFC East. Then if Philly and Seattle win out to their matchup, that’s going to be like an NFC championship game. Winner is in the driver seat for home field.

  6. Fly Eagles Fly till you crash and burn. The way Wentz takes hits he won’t last the rest of the season!!

  7. Minor victory. At the end of the season he will be offensive player of the year…along with MVP, Superbowl MVP and 1st time Superbowl champion (and won’t be his last).

    Unlike others like Brady and Wilson, Wentz’s team cannot win without him.

  8. Carson Wentz, Dak Prescott, Jared Goff, Deshaun Watson…the future of NFL quarterbacks hasn’t looked as bright in years! We’ll spend the next 10 years debating over who’s the best and my guess is that it’s going to be changing from year-to-year…or even week-to-week. Glad to have Wentz as an Eagle, but at this point I’d be happy with any of those guys.

    Told you he was the CHAMPION OF OCTOBER

    Cue the daily elmerbrowneelmerbrown Wentz-Envy…lol!

  10. Nah…..cardio…..I’m good…..just love teasing you guys bc you take it way too seriously….that being said if you win it congrats….but if not…..don’t freak out either…you shouldn’t let teams and people who don’t know you effect your mood. Very surprising to see when I moved to this city how mad people got…relax.

  11. Ok let me rephrase my earlier comment, and I want all eagle fans to respond to it. How will your life be better if the eagles win the sb? your up…go!

  12. Its funny how people say that wentz wont last all season with the amount of hits hes taking. Didnt he play all 16 games last year? Behind an offensive line that wasnt as good as this years group? That doesnt guarantee he wont be injured this season, but hes proven he can take some hits and still keep going. Haters and their wishful thinking. . . .

  13. Wentz debatably edges out Dak, but Zeke takes the cake on this one. Much more dominant player than Wentz in October.

    • Elliott: 498 rushing, 146 receiving (644 total, avg. 161/game), 5 total TD’s.
    • Wentz: 1,005 yards, 61.8% comp, 13 TD’s, 3 INT’s, 112.3 rating, sacked 10x.
    • Dak: 880 yards, 63.1% comp, 11 TD’s, 2 INT’s, 103.8 rating, sacked 5x.

    Your stats certainly make a good argument, but sometimes it’s more about watching the games. The stats don’t show what Wentz did to compile those stats. His ability to get out of trouble and extend plays was nothing short of amazing this month. Some of throws he made could’ve only been made by a select few quarterbacks in this league. That said…an argument could’ve been made for any of the three.

  16. 7-1 and already super bowl champs! LOL the Eagles will get smacked back to reality by Seattle in a few weeks.

    It would be nice to not have to hear ‘So what if you’ve owned the Giants for the past decade, YOU STILL HAVE NO SUPER BOWLS!’, but I know that the goal posts will just move to ‘Well, you STILL have the least amount in the NFC East! Even the Redskins have 2! LOL@U!’ But honestly, my life will be better because we’ll get to to feel like fans of true champions instead of just fans of a really good team. And that one twat that just likes to post “1960” in any Eagles article might go away.

  18. I swear Cleveland is cursed. Everyone the pass on goes into the hall of fame, everyone they get busts. Wentz and Watson will probably go on to the hall of fame while Cleveland will finish the year 0-16.

    First thanks for responding. But honestly who cares if people say that. And the being fans of true champions, seriously, that will make you feel better inside. Feel better from seeing your kids succeed, being successful in life, being a good person. Random people who you don’t know or barely know should never be able to get under your skin that badly that you feel less of a person. Just football (or sports in general) Philly. It’s like watching a good or bad movie. Once it is over your position in life is the same. It is what you make of it not what other make it for you.

    Sucks he has to face the No Fly Zone this week..

    ————————————————

    Umm, I can’t stand the Eagles but you may wanna rethink the tired “no fly zone.” They have allowed a QBR of 87.4, which ranks 19th in the league. Also, they are 9th on DVOA (Defense adjusted value over average, a Football Outsiders metric, look it up) that shows they are decent, but by no means elite. They are great at stopping the run so we’ll see how Wentz fares as I don’t see them being able to run the ball much…

  22. Wentz debatably edges out Dak, but Zeke takes the cake on this one. Much more dominant player than Wentz in October.

    • Elliott: 498 rushing, 146 receiving (644 total, avg. 161/game), 5 total TD’s.
    • Wentz: 1,005 yards, 61.8% comp, 13 TD’s, 3 INT’s, 112.3 rating, sacked 10x.
    • Dak: 880 yards, 63.1% comp, 11 TD’s, 2 INT’s, 103.8 rating, sacked 5x.

    Doing for Alshon what Cutler never could
    ==========================================
    Not true.
    Jeffery put up very good numbers when he and Cutler were together.
    It is when Cutler was hurt that no one could get him the ball.
    It is ok to look this stuff up.
    Don’t be afraid of facts.
