Wentz expressed his delight after the triumph, saying, “It felt fantastic to kind of pull together and get it done when it counted at the end. Cool way to begin
Wentz called it an ugly stretch, and it was made possible by being late on one pick and forcing the second. However, Wentz had to rally the Commanders because he threw interceptions on back-to-back plays, which resulted in 10 Jaguars points.
It was the kind of emotional roller coaster that has come to characterize Wentz’s career; nevertheless, his new coach, Ron Rivera, is good with it as Ron Rivera knows how he can handle it throughout the season.
We’re going to ride with him, we’ll go with the good and the bad, he added, adding, “I’ll take antacids. We conducted a lot of study on him and were at ease and certain that this is the kind of brave guy we need around here.”
Wentz pounded the ground on the sideline after the second interception, looked at Rivera, who told him he now had to go win the game, and said, “I will,” before he calmly walked away — and did.
Wentz replied, “That’s just the reality “You’ve made a few poor plays; now is the chance to make amends. However, do not attempt to fix it all at once.
“We’re going to ride with him, we’ll go with the good, we’ll go with the bad,” he said, taking antacids. We conducted a lot of study on him and were at ease and certain that he is the kind of man we need around here—a man with some courage.”
Wentz looked at Rivera after the second interception, who told him he now had to go win the game, and said, “I will,” before he calmly walked away — and won the game.
Wentz remarked, “That’s just the truth “You’ve made a few mistakes; now is the time to correct them. Nevertheless, do not attempt to solve everything at once.
Last year, Wentz’s season came to an end in a 15-point defeat to Jacksonville, depriving the Indianapolis Colts of a spot in the postseason and all but guaranteeing his demise after only one campaign. Less than two months later, and only one year after acquiring him from Philadelphia, the Colts agreed to a deal.
But under Pederson’s leadership, the Jaguars are a different squad than before. Before the game, Wentz met with him.
Wentz recalled, “We were here with Philadelphia in Week 1 two years ago. It was enjoyable to see him, catch up with him, and compete against him despite how crazy things have changed. “He is the one whom I have respect in my heart and to whom I wish the best”.
Brown said, “I know there were some greats that played here before me, but I give my credit to God. The fact that I get to scratch my name in that book is a little overwhelming. I’m fortunate.
On the second series, the Jalen Hurts-to-Brown connection heated up as the quarterback completed passes to his close friend four times for 62 yards.
“It motivated me. There’s something about it that makes me want to reach out and touch it as soon as I can, Brown remarked.
Late in the second quarter, Hurts threw arguably his prettiest pass while wearing an Eagles uniform, dropping one over cornerback Will Harris deep down the right sideline into Brown’s arms. Brown then dragged the defender another 10 yards for a score.
By winning, Jackson joined a select group of quarterbacks who have won at least 38 of their first 50 starts in the Super Bowl era. Only Ken Stabler and Patrick Mahomes, who both won 40 of their first 50 starts, are ahead of Jackson in terms of wins.
