As we noted earlier this morning in Part I of this gif post, in the Philadelphia Eagles' win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, Carson Wentz was outstanding on third down throughout the entire day, going 11 of 12 for 225 yards, 3 TDs and 0 INTs.
Because of the size of the gif files, we broke this post into two parts. Go read Part I of this series before you continue forward.
Caught up? Good, let's continue on with the second half third downs that Wentz faced:
Wentz has all day to throw, and he finds Nelson Agholor sitting down in between the Cardinals' zone defense.
Wentz handles a low snap from Jason Kelce, but keeps his eyes down the field, and calmly delivers an on-target throw to Zach Ertz
Hey hey! We have our first incompletion from Wentz on third down, and it's an ugly one.
The Cardinals blitz, the Eagles' OL picks it up, Wentz makes a subtle move in the pocket, and floats it up beautifully to Agholor, who does the rest.
Up 24 facing a 3rd and long, Doug went conservative.
The Eagles take a shot on 3rd and medium, and Wentz makes a good deep throw to Kenjon Barner, who would have gotten to this ball if he wasn't held by Deone Bucannon. The Eagles get the pass interference call.
For the second time in the game, Wentz draws the Cardinals into the neutral zone, and Jason Peters reacts appropriately.
(We'll skip showing you that.)
In the midst of a nine-minute drive, the Eagles pick up another first down as Wentz finds Jeffery.
And finally, Wentz hits Ertz over the middle. No first down here, but the clock keeps moving.
