Carson Wentz refused to admit revenge was on his mind when talking about facing the Philadelphia Eagles. He had no animosity toward the franchise that drafted him and groomed him, then set him free like a Lynyrd Skynyrd song.
Wentz is treating the Commanders-Eagles game in Week 3 as just another one. He spoke only of good memories and a lot of fun during his five-year run in Philly. That’s one sideline. Up the I-95 corridor, there are some players in the Eagles locker room walking in with something to prove.
According to Brandon Graham, some guys had this game “circled” on the schedule. Revenge? Partly. Wentz kind of gave up on the team after he was benched for Jalen Hurts in 2020.
“This situation is totally different with him the way it ended, being here with how things went,” Graham told reporters. “I just feel like, you know, some guys just had his game circled if he ever played us again. So, it’s the first time I’ve seen him since he’s been gone. So, you know, we gonna do what we gotta do.”
Jason Peters on Wentz:
"He was just in Philadelphia. It's a hard city to play for. You gotta bring it every year or philly will eat you up"

It’s probably more out of a sense of pride in what Wentz refused to be a part of after he let reported hurt feelings get in the way. He could have come into training camp and competed for the starting job with Hurts, but he didn’t want to do that. Instead, Wentz requested a trade out of town and created an uncomfortable situation.
“You know what? I’m happy to be able to get to play him because it’ll be something we can talk about later on in our career after whoever wins this game, however it goes,” Graham said. “But we see him twice, and that’s a good thing for us and him. Because he got two opportunities to do his thing against us and we got two to do our thing against him.”

Fletcher Cox revealed that he chatted with Wentz the other day and makes it a point to keep in touch with his one-time franchise quarterback. Why not? The Eagles don’t win the Super Bowl without Wentz steering the ship for 13 games in 2017.
“We loved Carson while he was here,” Cox said. “I still talk to him, actually I talked to him yesterday. Ain’t nothing changed.”

Not even Wentz’s unique skillset: great arm strength, slippery mobility, and a flair for the dramatic has changed. Cox sees that same quarterback in Washington, with all the same traits he witnessed every day at practice for five seasons.
“The thing about Carson is he’s still got the arm talent,” Cox said. “He’s still making throws down the field, making guys miss. Again, he’s till slippery when it comes to ducking blocks and making guys miss so I think the biggest thing for us is to just focus on our gameplan.”
And focus on Wentz’s explosive weapons and offensive line. They are putting points on the board to the tune of 27.5 per game.
“Not just focus so much on Carson because they got an elite group of skills guys,” Cox said. “I think they’re pretty good upfront, so it’s going to come down to who want it the most.”Darius Slay Addresses Winning NFC Award
Darius Slay was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week after a two-interception night against Minnesota. It marked his fifth such weekly award – two with Philadelphia, another three with Detroit. Is winning those things getting old? Nah, especially not when Jamel Dean was balling out for Tampa Bay.
#NFL Interception Leaders:
1. #Ravens Marcus Williams – 3
2. #Eagles Darius Slay – 2
3. #Bills Jordan Poyer – 2
4. #Steelers Minkah Fitzpatrick – 2
5. #Bucs Jamel Dean – 2

Slay mentioned Dean’s big day while acknowledging how thankful he was for the honor.
“It’s hard to be Defensive Player of the Week,” Slay said. “There’ a lot of great DBs over here, lotta great ball being played, Dean could have won it the other day. He had two picks, too, so a lotta guys could have won it. For me to win it, it’s always a pleasure, I’m always thankful. I appreciate it. But I went out there and worked pretty hard for that.”

So far this season USC has lived up to the hype under first-year head coach Lincoln Riley. The Trojans have won their first three games by an average of 31 points this season.
Quietly Oregon St is off to a great start as well with a 3-0 record that has included wins over Boise St and Fresno St. Saturday night in Corvallis will likely be the Trojans’ toughest test of the season so far.
The USC offense has been hitting on all cylinders early this season as they’ve averaged 50.7 points and 520 yards per game. Caleb Williams has looked every bit like a possible Heisman candidate passing for 874 yards, eight touchdowns, and no interceptions. He’s also completing 74.4% of his passes.
The addition of Jordan Addison has been a home run for the USC offense. Addison has caught 18 passes for 295 yards and five touchdowns. Mario Williams has also been a solid number two option with 12 receptions for 194 yards and a touchdown.
The Trojan rushing attack has been balanced with 605 yards and averaging 5.9 yards per carry. Travis Dye has led the way with 227 yards and two touchdowns with Austin Jones not far behind at 196 yards and three touchdowns.
The USC defense has been improved to start the season, holding opponents to 19.67 points per game. While they’ve been able to keep opponents out of the end zone they have given up 380.67 yards per game.
The defense has also done a good job getting to opposing quarterbacks with 14 sacks. They’ve also forced 10 turnovers already.
The Oregon St offense has also put points so far this season averaging 45.67 points per game. The Beavers have also racked up 468.33 yards per game.
Quarterback Chance Nolan has led the way for the offense with 746 yards passing, seven touchdowns, and two interceptions. His top receiver has been Tre’Shaun Harrison with 16 receptions for 219 yards and two touchdowns.
The Oregon St rushing attack has been solid as well with 570 yards and averaging 4.9 yards per carry. The leading rusher has been Deshaun Fenwick with 219 yards and two touchdowns.
While the Beaver offense has been good, the defense has given up some points, allowing 25.67 points per game. The unit has also struggled to get much pressure on opposing quarterbacks as they’ve recorded just three sacks so far this season. The strength of the defense has been forcing turnovers with eight through three games.
