Wentz completed 7-of-14 passes for 54 yards and had two carries for three yards. The Eagles trailed the Ravens, 17-0, and Philadelphia fans aren’t happy with their quarterback’s performance.
Some were calling for backup quarterback Jalen Hurts.
Hurts played four snaps for the Eagles in the first half.
On one play with 5:32 to go in the second quarter, Hurts took the snap, faked the handoff to the running back, and he ran for 20 yards, giving the Eagles some life late in the half.
Philadelphia had 34 yards when Hurts was on the field, an average of 8.5 yards per play. During the team’s other 24 plays, the Eagles had 60 yards of offense, which was an average of 2.5 yards per play.
The Eagles shocked the NFL when they took Hurts in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
Hurts totaled 3,851 yards and 32 touchdowns in his lone season at Oklahoma. He led the Sooners to the Big 12 title and a College Football Playoff appearance. He was also named runner-up for the Heisman Trophy.
