Sorting the Sunday Pile, Week 9: Wentz, Goff, Prescott make 2016 draft look insane

The NFL season is at its midpoint, which makes it officially time to start the “[insert team here] is a [insert division/conference/Super Bowl here] contender” on a week-to-week basis. Consider the Eagles our starting point, because, buddy, they look like a team that can win it all after dropping a 50-burger on the Broncos‘ vaunted defense. 

They weren’t alone in piling up points on the scoreboard, as the Rams also lobbed a 50-spot up on the Giants defense, a humiliating home loss. In those games, Jared Goff and Carson Wentz, the No. 1 and No. 2 picks in the 2016 NFL Draft, both threw four touchdowns and zero interceptions. They are the first pair of quarterbacks in NFL history taken first and second overall to do so on the same day. Wild stuff — go ahead and circle their matchup in Week 14 as must-see TV. 

Philly moved to 8-1, the fourth time it’s been there as a franchise. In the previous four times, the Eagles appeared in the title game (1949, 1960, 1980 and 2004, previously). And they could do it again this year. Broncos cornerback Chris Harris pointed out that the Eagles have a “college offense” — he wasn’t being sarcastic, and he wasn’t insulting what Wentz and Co. are doing.
