Carson Wentz is the truth.
The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback didn't exactly shoot out of the gate on Monday Night Football but once he and the Birds offense got going, oh my! His second half was a thing of beauty.

Two plays in particular had football fans at a loss for words.
First, the scramble and touchdown toss to Corey Clement has a "how'd he do that" vibe:
I said "oh my god are you serious" to my television as Wentz threw that last touchdown.— Enrico (@The700Level) October 24, 2017
But it was this Houdini-like, Barry Sanders-esque escapability that had the Internet abuzz. Just watch. Over and over.
Former Eagle and elusive dude in his own right Shady McCoy was impressed.
Sheesh Carson SUPER NICE !!— Lesean McCoy (@CutonDime25) October 24, 2017
I'm converting to the Church of Wentz.— Enrico (@The700Level) October 24, 2017
Oh and we haven't even mentioned his TDs to Zach Ertz, Mack Hollins, and Nelson Agholor yet. All pretty, pretty, pret-ty good.
It's safe to say Carson has the city of Philadelphia believing.
There isn't a more dangerous quarterback in football than Wentz right now.— Doug Farrar (@BR_DougFarrar) October 24, 2017
That play really epitomizes what Carson Wentz is all about. The play isn't over until the play is over plus nine more seconds.— Reuben Frank (@RoobNBCS) October 24, 2017
Wentz finished the night 17-25 for 268 and 4 TDs. Not to mention his 63 yards rushing. The quarterback of your favorite football team is a stud. Oh and one interception that was basically an incredibly good punt.
The Eagles won by a final of 34-24 and remain the class of the NFC at 6-1.
