When he stopped dressing, Carson Wentz sat at his locker and stared on the floor himself for a few minutes.
“Very frustrated about this game,” he said later. “Actually, just pray just to relieve my mind and ease my heart forward.”
Wentz was desperate, and you can not blame him.
After a brilliant start, he performed a miserable finish and the eagles for the third time in franchise history blew a 17-point lead into the fourth quarter.
Much of the debt will go to the defense and deserve so.
But Wentz, with a new set of cuts in Panthers 25-yard-line and 71 seconds left, responded with an almost incredibly bad range of games.
And this time there was no miracle comeback. Only a 21
-17 loss to the pants, a 3-4 record, back-to-back home losses, an eight-hour flight to London in a few days, and Wentz staring alone on the floor.
“Really, offensive, we have to look hard in the mirror – including me – and late in games we must get better, Wentz said.” It’s just not a way for us to finish a game. I thought we moved the ball well early, some did good things as we know we can, and it just seemed we released the gas as a crime and stopped playing. “
Even after the pants scored 21 points in 10½ minutes to make a 17-0 deficit in a 21-17 lead, a 48-meter interference call on Panthers cornerback James Bradberry, who covered Alshon Jeffery Eagles a 1: a and 10 on Carolina 22 with 71 seconds left.
It’s the kind of game that the eagles would have pulled out last year with either Wentz or Nick Foles at the helm.
Not this time. 19659002] 1st and 10th: Wentz and Zach Ertz had a wrong communication and Eric Reid seemed to remove Wentz pass the 4-yard line, although the INT conversation was reversed. “There was only a misunderstanding between Zach and me” Wentz Smallwood jumped eight meters up in the middle, giving Eagles 3rd and 2 at Panthers 14-
2nd and 10th: Wendell Smallwood jumped eight meters in the middle, giving Eagles 3rd and 2 at Panthers 14-
] 3rd and 2nd: Wentz threw into the end zone, where Jeffery was blanketed in double coverage: “I f rsökte just give him a shot to make a play “Wentz said. “I have to get the ball higher if I’m going to do it. I have to see the band – there may have been another guy that’s open … I just tried to force someone inside that I probably would not have.”
4th and 2nd: With the game on the line Wentz could not even get a pass. He was dismissed by Julius Peppers and fumbled and ended the game. “I saw Alshon open over the middle late and when I got up and tried to throw I hit and the ball came out.”
What’s so crazy is that Wentz had the game for a lifetime before the ugly final series.
“When you’re in the field at the end of this with a shot and the ball in your hand, it’s frustrating,” he said.
Wentz ended 30-for-37 for 310 meters with two touchdowns and no interceptions.
Over the past month, he has become just the 11th quarterback in the NFL story with four straight games of 275 meters, 65 percent full-time percent, two or more TD and no interceptions.
His number for years is crazy: 71 percent, 10 TD, 1 INT, 108.1 fits grades.
But with the game on the line … he was terrible.
“Very disappointing,” he said. “We had a chance to win there at the end. Offensive we had the chance to seal the deal with the two units earlier and we did not.”
Eagles last three units had 22 meters of crimes. 19659002] For comparison, Panther’s last three units took 236 meters of crimes.
Wentz statistics have never been seen before.
However, he has won only two out of five starts since returning from his ACL injury.
“We’re on make-or-break-time, almost,” he said. “It’s hard to say exactly what it should take. We know what we can do, we do this. We just have to put everything together.”
“We are making high hopes for ourselves to go out and my attitude will never change, win or lose.”
