5. Carson Wentz, QB
Eagles’ quarterback Carson Wentz might’ve been scrutinized by critics many times for not being ‘clutch’ or for not being a ‘winner,’ but everybody who has been watching the Eagles without an unbiased view can understand that the team’s issues don’t have much to do with Wentz.
With that being said, the Eagles quarterback still needs to step it up this week. Wentz doesn’t have the most excellent track record against Dallas. With only one ‘real’ win over the Cowboys in three seasons, we need to see No. 11 accomplish more against the division’s best.
It’s understandable that Wentz is missing his No. 1 target, and the Eagles haven’t done much to help him by acquiring temporary speed, but Wentz needs to figure out ways to win without relying on unreliable factors, such as Nelson Agholor on the deep ball. It will surely take a collective effort to win on Sunday, but Wentz will need to rally the troops like he’s never done before, and get the absoloute best out of everybody in order to obtain a divisional win on the road.
