Another week, another Philadelphia victory.
The Eagles improved to 8-1 on the year with today’s 51-23 victory over the struggling Denver Broncos. The victory stretches Philly’s win streak to seven games.
Philly’s 51-point onslaught marked the third consecutive game in which Carson Wentz’s offensive attack put up 30+ points against the opposing team’s defense.
On 15-of-27 passing, Wentz tossed for 199 yards and four touchdowns. The second-year quarterback has thrown 23 touchdowns and five interceptions through just nine games this year.
Oh, and as if that’s not enough to pump Philly fans’ self-confidence through the roof … it’s just the fifth time in team history that Philly has started the season with an 8-1 record. The other four times? Philadelphia reached either the NFL championship game or the Super Bowl.
Next up for Philadelphia? Bye week, Dallas, Chicago to finish out November. Expect to see a 10-1 Eagles heading into December.
