The Eagles had three more turnovers, giving them six in two games.
It all began against the Rams when running back Miles Sanders fumbled on the third play of the game and continued with a crushing interception thrown by quarterback Carson Wentz, an attempt to wide receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside on a first-down throw from the Rams’ 21-yard line that was picked off by cornerback Darious Williams with the Eagles down five points.
The Rams took possession and drove 68 yards for a field goal, taking back momentum for the remainder of the game.
Wentz, who threw only seven interceptions in each of the last three seasons, already has four in two games. He has five turnovers. He said he tried to “force one in there” to Arcega-Whiteside, and it was just not a good decision. Whatever it means, all four of Wentz’s interceptions have come on first downs.
