Report: Philadelphia Eagles make shocking decision regarding Carson Wentz and Jalen Hurts

The Philadelphia Eagles reportedly are benching quarterback Carson Wentz.

Wentz was pulled from the Eagles’ loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday in favor of rookie Jalen Hurts.

Hurts will start against the New Orleans Saints this week.

Wentz, 27, has regressed in 2020. After throwing for 4,039 yards and 27 touchdowns in 2019, Wentz has thrown a league-high 15 interceptions this season. He’s tossed just 16 touchdowns so far this year.

Hurts looked solid in relief of Wentz this past Sunday. He completed five of his 12 pass attempts for 109 yards and a touchdown. He also threw a late interception with the game already out of reach.

The Eagles took Hurts in the second round of the NFL draft this year, but it has to be a surprise that they are turning to him so soon.

Wentz recently signed a massive deal with $109.9 million in guaranteed money.

Hurts will have a chance to prove he deserves the job heading into next season.
