Philadelphia Eagles: 3 key takeaways from 20-16 win over Indianapolis Colts in Week 3 Excitement was higher than ever for the Philadelphia Eagles heading into their Week 3 meeting with the Indianapolis Colts since this would mark the first time since September that Carson Wentz would be healthy enough to be playing under center.

The Eagles won today and the Cowboys lost Today became a good day when the Eagles beat the Colts. Then it became even better when the Cowboys lost to the Seahawks.

Handing out 10 awards from the Eagles-Colts game The Philadelphia Eagles eked out a nail-biter that came down to a pair of defensive stands to seal a win against Frank Reich, Andrew Luck, and the Indianapolis Colts. Oh, and Carson Wentz played for the first time since he tore his ACL and LCL last December!
The Philadelphia Eagles win an ugly one against the Colts 11 hasn't played a down in almost 300 days. But none of that mattered, once the signal caller stepped foot on the turf. Wentz and the offense set the tone early. On his first drive, he was near perfect. He was five-for-seven, throwing for 55 yards. Wentz capped off the 12-play drive, with a touchdown pass to the rookie tight-end, Dallas Goedert.
Eagles rookie Dallas Goedert scores first NFL touchdown in Week 3 against the Colts In the Eagles' first offensive drive of the game, and in the first series led by Carson Wentz in 2018, the rookie finally snagged his first career touchdown - and the first of Wentz's return. Goedert finished the day with seven receptions for 73 yards, and should get more opportunities with Wentz back in the game.
Nervewracking win for Eagles over Colts, 20-16 It did, and fortunately the Colts came up short. Late in the 4th quarter, the Colts had a chance to convert on a red zone opportunity and leave the city of Philadelphia with a win. Facing a first-and-10 at the Eagles' 11-yard line, the Colts failed to find a way into the end zone, as the Eagles buckled down and shut the door.
Carson Wentz: Felt good to finally be out there Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz didn't play at all in the preseason, so he had not taken a hit since his knee injury late last season when he got hit for the first time in Sunday's 20-16 win over the Colts. Wentz said it "felt great" to get that out of the way and that he was happy with the way he started the game overall.

Eagles Hold on for Tough Win Carson Wentz returned to the field for the first time since December and helped the Eagles to beat the Colts 20-16. It wasn't a pretty win by any stretch of the imagination, but it shows up as a W in the standings and the Eagles will gladly take that.
Philadelphia Eagles: The Carson Wentz to Dallas Goedert connection is born With many of the Philadelphia Eagles' top offensive weapons missing, Carson Wentz looks to Dallas Goedert to build some chemistry in Week 3. Could this be…
Wentz, Eagles defence secure victory over Colts Carson Wentz passed for 255 yards and one touchdown to help the Philadelphia Eagles defeat the Indianapolis Colts.
Eagles vs. Colts: 8 winners and 5 losers Now let's take a look at the biggest winners and losers from this game. Wentz didn't post an amazing stat line; he finished 25/37 for 255 yards, one touchdown, one real bad interception, and a 84.9 passer rating. He also got strip-sacked to allow the Colts to recover in the red zone.
Wentz opens with TD, gets win in Eagles return Quarterback Carson Wentz, returning to the Philadelphia Eagles for the first time in 2018 following ACL/LCL surgery on his left knee, opened with a touchdown on the Eagles' first possession en route to a 20-16 win.
5 takeaways from Eagles 20-16 victory over Colts Anyone who questioned the importance of Carson Wentz to the Eagles needs to only watch the first drive of the Eagles 20-16 win over the Colts to gain an understanding why. Wentz showed escape ability, toughness, a laser right arm, and moxie, in leading the Birds to a come from behind win at home.
Frank Reich on Hail Mary: Jacoby Brissett had arm to get it to end zone The Colts had the ball with seconds to play on their own 38-yard line and a need to erase a four-point deficit against the Eagles. Naturally they tried for a Hail Mary. What was unusual was that they pulled their starting quarterback for the play.
The Colts Don't Trust Andrew Luck To Throw A Hail Mary For the majority of this past offseason, the narrative surrounding Andrew Luck and his long-injured shoulder was that the Colts quarterback was close to returning to his superstar form-even though the benchmark for the full recovery began when he threw a football in late July.
Eagles: Carson Wentz starts strong as Philadelphia holds on vs. Colts PHILADELPHIA - Carson Wentz wasn't the vintage Wentz of last season, but he was good enough to lead the Eagles to a 20-16 win over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. Wentz made his long-awaited return Sunday after missing 9 1/2 months for knee surgery.
In return to Eagles, Carson Wentz proves some things never change Wentz's second pass and first completion was vintage Carson, finding Ertz across the middle for 17 yards and a first down. To cap off a perfectly sculpted 12-play, 79 yard drive, Wentz hit Goedert for a wide open score. Similarly built, it comes as little surprise that the Wentz to Goedert connection was also featured against the Colts.
Final observations: Eagles 20, Colts 16 In fact, if not for a questionable penalty called on Jalen Mills in the first half, the Colts may never have reached the end zone at all. Mills did his best to avenge a bad game in Tampa Bay last weekend, if not with his coverage at least with his tackling.
Eagles hold off Colts for 20-16 win Carson Wentz had his ups and downs in his first start since last season's torn ACL, but the Eagles defense came up big in the red zone several times and the Eagles are 2-1 after a 20-16 home win on Sunday.
Eagles vs. Colts Final Score: Philadelphia holds on to beat Indianapolis, 20-16 Goedert was just short of the sticks at 4th-and-1. Would've been game if he got to the marker. Colts take their final timeout and the Eagles have to punt. Colts tenth drive: Time for Jim Schwartz to earn his paycheck here. Eagles defense needs a big stop.
