Carson Wentz Leads Eagles over Bears; Looks Legit

On the national stage, Carson Wentz was more than up to the task of taking on his first road game in the NFL – a test he would pass with flying colors.

The Wentz-led Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Chicago Bears, 29-14, on the strength of the young QB’s 190 yards on 21/34 passing, one touchdown, and no picks. Ryan Mathews added two scores on 32 rushing yards, while the Eagles defense forced and recovered 3 turnovers. This is the second game in a row that Wentz was without a turnover.

Bears’ QB Jay Cutler, on the other hand, did not have his best day. He finished with 157 yards, no touchdowns, one fumble, and one interception – along with an injury to his hand during said interception. He did not return to the game after his injury.

The game really turned around in the 3rd quarter, and you can see in the Social Delta graph of the game too, that this time was when the biggest social outcry in the game was going on from fans:

During the 3rd quarter of #PHIvsCHI, the Bears turned the ball over twice, and the Eagles score 2 TD's, changing the momentum of the game.

Let’s take a look at some of the tweets that happened during this swing in the third quarter, because some of them are pretty funny. As always, all tweets are captured, logged, and archived by Social Delta:

Carson Wentz and the Eagles will take on the Pittsburgh Steelers next week in a battle of 2-0 teams, while the Bears will face the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football.
