BRING ON THE REDSKINS! EAGLES WENTZ, JEFFERY AND SMITH LOOK READY FOR SEPT. 10!

By Michael Bennett

Kid Carson Wentz and his Eagles’ offense look ready for the Redskins on Sept. 10!

He threw touchdown passes to new receivers Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith (celebrating above), Mychal Kendricks returned an interception 31 yards for a score and the Eagles beat the Miami Dolphins 38-31 last night at the Linc.

Wentz connected with Smith on a 50-yard TD down the right side on a third-and-8 on the opening series for a 7-0 lead. Smith, who was signed along with Jeffery in free agency to bolster the receiving group, didn’t have a catch in the first two games.

Wentz then hit Jeffery for a 20-yard gain and found him again for a 15-yard TD pass over the middle on his fourth and final series. Wentz finished 6 of 10 for 129 yards, two TDs and one interception. Coming in, there were concerns Jeffery wasn’t on the same page with Wentz because he has missed a lot of practice time.

“I felt really confident in our chemistry going back to the spring, but it was nice to do it in a game here in front of the fans,” Wentz said.

Eagles reserves led by No. 3 quarterback Matt McGloin had a six-play, 53-yard TD drive against Miami’s starters. Corey Clement capped it with a 3-yard TD run that tied it at 21.

“They got a good feel for us and they made a couple plays,” Dolphins cornerback Byron Maxwell said.

Mychal Kendricks then intercepted Matt Moore’s tipped pass and returned it for a score to put Philadelphia ahead 28-21.
