But Wentz needed more help to make the offense go.
The second-year QB showed how effective he can be in that type of wild west environment on the game's initial drive, as he shook loose some would-be tacklers in the backfield, kept his eyes downfield and launched the ball deep to receiver Nelson Agholor, who raced in for a 58-yard touchdown. Carson Wentz has an entirely new set of offensive weapons where timing will likely be an issue early.

Trust Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich, the comeback king in his National Football League career, just having a guy like Jeffery puts a bounce in the step of a quarterback.

The Eagles made a stand in the red zone and force the Redskins to settle for a 33-yard field goal from Dustin Hopkins to trim the Eagles lead back down to two points. Cousins badly missed Jamison Crowder who was running a slant and Mills was there to make the play. Then, it carried over into the first game.
