Eagles top Colts as Wentz makes his return

23 septembrie 2018 22:52

Carson Wentz did not disappoint in his highly anticipated return to the field on Sunday as he led the Philadelphia Eagles to a 20-16 win over the Indianapolis Colts. 

In his first game back since tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in December, Wentz looked strong and fully recovered as he completed 25 of 37 passes for 255 yards. He had one touchdown, but threw an interception and had one fumble. 

Wentz wasted no time getting Philadelphia on the board as he connected with tight end Dallas Goedert for a 13-yard touchdown on the Eagles' opening drive.

He put the Eagles in position to score again with 2:21 remaining in the first, but Jake Elliott missed a 55-yard field goal as it went wide left. Elliott rebounded, though, and made a 33-yard field goal late in the third quarter to put the Eagles up 10-7 heading into the half after the Colts scored in the last few seconds of the first quarter with a five-yard touchdown pass from Andrew Luck to Ryan Grant. 

At half time, Wentz had completed 14-of-20 passes for 165 yards while Luck completed just 10 of 16 for 35 yards. 

The Colts tied up the game coming out of the break with a field goal and then took the lead with another one after Wentz threw an interception. Anthony Walker returned the ball 11 yards to the Eagles 17 and then Elliott kicked another 24-yard field goal, which tied the game up 13-13.

Wentz made a few mistakes down the stretch, including a fumble. The Colts turned it into a field goal to take the lead for the first time to start the fourth quarter. 

The Eagles secured the win with a 17-play drive that was capped off by a four-yard run by Wendell Smallwood that took 11:18 to get into the end zone and Derek Barnett's sack of Luck on fourth-and-one gave Wentz a win in his first game back from injury.
