  • Passer Rating: 105.93

– Turnovers 

Which QB will turn the ball over on Sunday?

Dak has been a turnover machine over the past two seasons..

But when he doesn’t turn the ball over, the Cowboys win.

Dak has 5 interceptions and 11 fumbles (5 lost) this season.

He tends to hold onto the ball for way too long. He’s been sacked 45 times, that’s the most in the NFL. As we know, those sacks can often lead to turnovers…

Speaking of fumbling, Carson Wentz has had his issues with holding onto the football as well. He has fumbled 31 times in 39 career games, including 8 (5 lost) this season.

Wentz has thrown some bad interceptions as of late. He has 6 interceptions in his last five games, including a big one the last time that these two teams played…

 

-Most important match-up yet

With first place in the NFC East on the line, this is by-far the most important match-up yet.

I’ll even take that a step further and say that is the biggest game of Carson Wentz’s career.

I don’t care what he says…

 

… this is a HUGE game for him. He needs to make a statement on Sunday.

Dak has A LOT of shortcomings, but he has proven that he can win football games.

Dak has led 7 comebacks and 12 game winning drives, while Carson has only led 4 comebacks and 4 game winning drives, one of which was week 12 vs the Giants.

In week 10 vs Dallas, Wentz had an opportunity to lead the Eagles back, but failed.

Now with the season on the line, he has the opportunity for some much needed redemption.

In his last two games vs the Cowboys, Wentz has started off very slow…

Last year in Dallas- 7/18, 58 yards, 47.92 QB rating.

Week 10- 10/17, 104 yards, 1 INT, 52.1 QB rating.

But in the second half he was much better…

Last year in Dallas- 7/9, 88 yards, 2 TDs, 146.99 QB rating.

Week 10- 22/27, 256 yards, 2 TDs, 130.86 QB rating.

He needs to put together a complete game this time around.

Carson Wentz is far and away the superior QB. It’s time to play like it.

Can he put his team on his back and lead to them to a statement victory?
