Wentz hits 300 for first time, Eagles run away from Steelers
Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz came out firing, again.
The Steelers didn’t do much in the way of firing back.
The Eagles ran away from the Steelers in the second half Sunday and won, 34-3. The Steelers missed a field goal on their first drive, made one on their third drive and didn’t score again.
The Eagles move to 3-0. The Steelers slip to 2-1.
Wentz had his first 300-yard game. He threw touchdowns of 12 yards to Jordan Matthews and 73 yards to Darren Sproles. He was 23-of-31, wasn’t intercepted and wasn’t sacked.
He hasn’t thrown an interception in three games and is the first quarterback in NFL history to go over 100 attempts to start his career without throwing an interception.
It was the worst loss for the Steelers under Mike Tomlin and the worst by any Steelers team since 1989.
The last two touchdowns came via the run in the third quarter, one by Wendell Smallwood and one by Kenjon Barner. The Eagles outgained the Steelers, 426-251.
The Eagles picked off Ben Roethlisberger once and sacked him once, recovering a fumble in the process. Roethlisberger threw for 257 yards but were held to 21 yards rushing.
