Wentz tosses 4 touchdown passes, Eagles beat Cardinals 34-7

Carson Wentz calls third downs the money down.


Wentz threw a career-best four touchdown passes and the Philadelphia Eagles continued their impressive start with a 34-7 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.

Wentz tossed three scoring passes on three consecutive attempts in the first quarter, including 59 yards to Torrey Smith, 11 yards to Zach Ertz and 15 yards to Trey Burton. He connected with Nelson Agholor for a 72-yard TD in the third quarter that left six-time Pro Bowl cornerback Patrick Peterson shouting on the sideline.

Dez Bryant is still looking for that big breakout game of 2017. Through five games he has 21 catches on 48 targets for 264 yards and three touchdowns, including a score Sunday against Green Bay. With the way Bryant and Dak Prescott closed last season with six of his eight touchdown catches in the last eight games and six games with at least 70 yards receiving, their connection has been off to start the season. With the bye week, it could be a good time for Bryant and Prescott to reset and get ready for an 11-game push in which they will have to put up numbers if the Cowboys want to get back to the playoffs.

Limited Kids Jalen Collins Jersey Paul Perkins didn’t help any fantasy teams in the first five weeks of the season. He averaged less than two yards per carry and hasn’t found his way into the end zone. Perkins’ season high is 22 yards rushing and he missed Sunday’s game with a rib injury. It has been tough sledding early this season. Tight end Evan Engram, even though he was shut out by the Chargers, has been a pleasant surprise. Even though rookie tight ends usually struggle early, Engram had at least four catches in every game prior to Week 5.
