Quarterback Carson Wentz, 24, has received his first career Pro Bowl honor after leading the NFL with a franchise-record 33 passing touchdowns through 13 games. He was also considered an MVP candidate before his season ended with an ACL injury. Wentz became just the third quarterback in NFL history to throw 33-plus touchdowns and no more than seven interceptions through 13 games, joining Tom Brady in 2015 (33-6) and 2007 (45-5) and Aaron Rodgers in 2014 (35-3) and 2011 (39-6).

“I was excited but I come from a unit where we all are straight brothers," said Brandon Brooks. "So it’s not like an individual accolade. It’s (offensive line coach Jeff) Stoutland coaching me up, getting me right, refining my technique and things like that. Playing alongside Lane Johnson and Jason Kelce helps tremendously and Carson (Wentz) playing well and making plays. So although it’s kind of an individual honor I wouldn’t be able to do it without playing in between these two guys and guys making plays in the backfield too.”

“It’s been one of my goals to be called one of the best in the world at what you do, so it’s pretty special," said Lane Johnson. "I think Brandon and I play really well together. A lot of his success determines my success and vice versa. I'm so happy for him. He definitely deserves it, really good player.”

“It's rewarding," said Zach Ertz. "I think any person wants to see the 'hard work' pay off, but at the end of the day I've had catches and yards and touchdowns before but I've never had a team like this. The ultimate goal is to win football games in this league. If you don't win, nothing really matters. That's what's been so rewarding this year. I've been a really big contributor on a really good football team. I think that whole process has been really fulfilling.”
