In the very first NFL action of his career, Eagles QB Carson Wentz looked much more like a veteran than a rookie.

The second overall pick in the 2016 draft out of North Dakota State drove the Birds 75 yards in 9 plays for the game’s first score—a 19-yard pass to wide receiver Jordan Matthews.

Wentz may have lucked out getting to go against one of the defenses in the league last season in the Cleveland Browns, but he’s at least getting it done. At the half, he’s connected on 10-of-19 for 128 yards and 1 TD.
