It looks like the Eagles will Bench Wentz and named Jalen Hurts the starting QB against the Saints December 13th. Hurts who came in late against the Green Bay Packers did spark the offense, throwing 5/12 for 109 yards with a TD and late game INT (which was tipped). Wentz continued to struggle throwing 6/15 for 79 yards and no TDs or INTs.
The Eagles have struggled mightily on offense which has been contributed to both the injury prone offensive line as well as the receivers failure to gain separation.
