Okay, Eagles Nation, last night was a loss.
But take a breath and look for a silver lining:
Carson Wentz nearly matched Russell Wilson’s quarterback play.
On Philly’s only touchdown drive, Wentz found Nelson Agholor (seven catches, 141 yards) twice for a combined 78 yards following two improvised scrambles and off-balance heaves.
If not for his inexcusable goal-line fumble, Wentz (348 yards) would have played a clean, brilliant game in one of the league’s harshest atmospheres.
The Eagles had their nine-game winning streak snapped and lost their stranglehold on NFC home-field advantage, but at least Wentz came to play.
