Carson Wentz has climbed to the top of the Eagles record book.
With a two-yard throw to Alshon Jeffery in the third-quarter, the Philadelphia Eagles second-year quarterback, topped Sonny Jurgenson's on the all-time single-season passing touchdown list. Jurgenson who tossed 32 touchdowns in 1961 was passed on Wentz's fourth touchdown pass of the day in the teams 13th game.
Just 24 years old, Wentz is having a MVP type of season, coming into the Week 14 game against the Rams with 3005 passing yards with 29 touchdown passes in just his second season.
The bad news is he was forced from the game with a left knee injury, and will not return. He was injured on a touchdown run that was called back by a holding penalty, on a hit from Rams linebacker Mark Barron.
He remained in the game for four more plays, tossing the record setting touchdown to Jeffery.
