WATCH: Eagles QB Carson Wentz with absurd TD pass

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles did not get off to a great start at home against a lesser Washington Redskins squad Sunday. Their fans let them know about it.

In what shouldn’t be considered too much of a surprise, Philadelphia picked it up big time in the second half to narrow the gap. That included this absurd touchdown pass from Carson Wentz to Alshon Jeffery.

It might have gone for only five yards, but this is among the most impressive passes we’ve seen on opening day.

Rolling out of the pocket on third down to evade pressure. Throwing an absolute dime on the run.

That’s what makes people think Wentz is among the best young arms in the NFL. Very few quarterbacks can make this throw.
