Carson Wentz: It was just man coverage. I knew Jordan, all week we’ve been repping that. I knew that he’d get a good release and he beat his guy. I just threw it up there and gave him a chance and he made a heck of a play.

Jordan Matthews: I mean you can’t throw those any better. I mean, he put it right where it needed to be. He was waiting until you break leverage on a guy. So, even if he tries to recover it’s too late.

The big moment for Wentz in the 2nd half came when Eagles rookie head coach Doug Pederson decided to go for it on a 4th and four near midfield in the third quarter.

Carson Wentz: For me in that moment of the game it was react and go call the play. They brought the all out blitz and Ertz made a great play. I was pretty excited that he had the faith in me to call the fourth and four play and put us in that situation.

Doug Pederson: You know it kind of takes the wind out of the sails defensively. I was in that mode of, I wanted to stay aggressive with Carson and the guys. I just dialed it up the next play. Nelson had a great release off the ball on a great corner and Carson put it right where it had to be, so it was just another aggresive play back to back.

Carson Wentz: When coach called it I was pretty excited. Nelson, right off the ball… If you guys go back and watch, he killed his guy and had a great release. I just put it out there for him and he was running and it was great. Great play by him. You dream and all you want to do is win. That was the goal today. We came out and got a great team win and I think it will hit me now after the game. I’ve been dreaming about this since I was a kid. But, again it’s just the first of many and now it’s on to next week.
