Writes Geoff Mosher in FanRag:

Carson Wentz completed 6 of 10 passes for 129 yards and a 104.2 passer rating. The Eagles will take that stat line every day. But what had to concern them was the number of hits Wentz took and the occasions when Wentz avoided hits that, perhaps in the regular season, won’t be near misses.

The Eagles’ offensive line, which Dolphins All-Pro defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh described as “elite” this week, suffered some costly breakdowns.

Wentz was only sacked once but was under duress on too many throws for coach Doug Pederson’s liking.
