The Philadelphia Eagles are back in action this Sunday after dropping to 1-1 last week.
But who even cares about the last two weeks. It’s almost like a whole new season is beginning with Carson Wentz returning as the Eagles’ starting quarterback on Sunday.
In case you didn’t realize, he’s kind of a big deal.
It’ll be really interesting to see how Wentz looks in his first game back. Is he going to be rusty as he plays in his first game since tearing his ACL and LCL? Is he instantly going to be awesome out of the gate and breathe some much-needed life into this Eagles offense?
Wentz’s work will be cut out for him as he returns to an Eagles offense that’s depleted at the skill player positions. Philadelphia will likely be without two of their top running backs AND three of their top four receivers against the Colts.
But it’s not just the Eagles who will be facing challenges. Indianapolis comes to town to face off against an Eagles team that’s 16-3 at home since the beginning of the Doug Pederson era in 2016.
The Eagles will be hungry to get back on track and Wentz will be hungriest of all to help get them there.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch tonight’s game.
