Hurts Replaces Wentz in Philly
(AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles are changing starting quarterbacks following a four-game losing streak that’s dropped them to 3-8-1.
Jalen Hurts will be under center for the start of Sunday’s game against the Saints. Head coach Doug Pederson insisted Monday the decision was his, even though Carson Wentz’s four-year, $128 million contract begins in 2021.
Hurts replaced Wentz in the third quarter of Sunday’s 30-16 loss to Green Bay. Hurts was sacked three times while completing 5 of 12 passes for 109 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
