On the opening drive of Sunday’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Jacksonville Jaguars, Carson Wentz pulled off a rare trifecta.
The quarterback had his third-down pass batted back at him. He then not only caught it, but ran the ball for a first down.
Not a typo.

Talk about your quick reactions. Though, it’s not Wentz’s first reception of his own pass. He caught a seven-yarder back in 2016 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Unfortunately, it didn’t lead to anything good in the long run, as Wentz fumbled the ball after being sacked, and Jacksonville recovered.
