2. Philadelphia Eagles, Week 14
Whether they like it or not, Jared Goff and Carson Wentz of the Philadelphia Eagles will be compared for the rest of their NFL careers after the two quarterbacks were selected as the top two overall picks in the 2016 NFL Draft. Unlike Dak Prescott, both Goff and Wentz were the unfortunate victims of having to play in offenses with minimum weapons, but at least the Eagles were able to help their quarterback record seven wins during his first season.
As for Goff, the Rams hope to help their beloved quarterback earn his first career NFL win early on in 2017 after failing to do so in seven attempts during his rookie season. While Goff certainly deserves some benefit of the doubt since his top two targets in the passing game at the moment are Tavon Austin and Robert Woods, Wentz has every reason in the world to be excited about his sophomore year after the Eagles managed to land Alshon Jeffery in free agency.
At the moment, Philadelphia seems to be winning the battle of which quarterback seems to have the most potential when seeing the toughness and leadership displayed by Wentz in 16 games as the starter in 2016. With that being said, maybe that’s the type of motivation needed by Goff to elevate his game to the next level, as hopefully being in Sean McVay‘s system will help with his development process.
